Mermaid Library Reveal - Name my Mermaid!

I FINALLY have students.  I am jinxing myself, but I Love LOve LOVe LOVE this new GT position!  I hate doing all the meetings and paperwork, but the kids are awesome.

Today I am revealing a little more of my classroom and...the Mermaid Library.

My bloggie inspiration, Jennifer White from First Grade Blue Skies inspired my Mermaid Library.  
This is her cutie-patootie pirate. When I saw it this summer, I knew I had to make a similar mermaid.  Those little summer cobwebs cleared out and in my head, I saw...

I began working on my Mermaid this summer.  
Originally, I had a huge area to put her in, but in my new room my library is in a small corner.  

This is my mermaid.  Yes, she has a tutu and orange hair.  I don't love her hair...but everyone who comes in really likes it.  I'm going to look for wrapping paper and make some cute pink hair, I think;)

When you walk in the door, this is what you see.

This is my computer area, love it.

My pretty matching bulletin boards.

Since I see a different class every day, they have a bin to "save their work" and their behavior clips go into the pencil pouches hanging on command hooks.  

This Little Piggy needs a name for her mermaid...do you have any ideas?
