Five for Friday!!

Happy happy Friday, Bloggy Peeps! Kerri here...

Well, it's Friday, so you know what that means...I'm linking up with Kacey over at Doodle Bugs Teaching for her...

Let's get started, shall we??
First up...this gave me a giggle so I just had to include it. One of my little darlings drew this little polar bear for her Draw and Write story this week...
I do believe that this polar bear is wearing pink socks? Or maybe it's pink Doc Martens (which would be totally wicked, BTW). I love that the baby bear has pink socks too. H.I.L.A.R.I.O.U.S.

Number 2: The Fancy Water dispenser...in my classroom.
Yup. You read that right. At my school, the PTA pays for every classroom to have sparkling clean bottled water AND cone shaped cups that are delivered each week by a very friendly water delivery guy.  Yes, we are TOTALLY spoiled!
No drinking fountain water for my kidlets. Nope. No way! It would probably be nice if I let them ever actually GO AND GET a drink out from it, but sadly, that hardly ever happens, UNLESS it's Fun Friday. Then it's an all out drink fest, people. For reals!

Number 3...I used my "fancy schmancy" camera to take some pictures of the favorite places in my classroom...side note: my big buddy teacher who is a MALE (say no more) claims I have an issue with having too many chochkies, but I think he is out of his head. You can NEVER have too many chochkies! Who's with me!!

Here are some pictures and other momentos behind my desk. The Matryoshka doll came all the way from Russia by one of my favorite students ever and I LOVE IT! It's GINORMOUS! Also, I love the picture of my little ladies and my fellow first grade teacher friends!

Okay, yes. These MIGHT be chochkies, HOWEVER, that owl is awesome and the pumpkin juice bottle came home with me all the way from the Harry Potter Theme Park~so there...

I have a giant palm tree in my classroom that I use to hang, um, chochkies? on.  Mostly owls and birds, and I love it. It is fabulous!

This penant my friend Sarah sent me all the way from England and she made it. It hangs behind the reading table and adds a little splash of color to the area! Notice the rogue LEGOS on the shelf. Yeah, I have NO IDEA how those got there!

My little classroom library. I love this place and so do my kidlets. So much in fact that I have to kick them out of there almost every day, due to the fact that there really is NO WAY that 23 kids can fit in there, no matter how hard they try!

Number 4...scary baby doll...
One of my sweeties earned a fluffy friend ticket for moving her clip up to blue 5 times (my behavior system-we'll discuss this another time) and THIS is what she brought in. Does she not REALIZE that I have an irrational fear of baby dolls with filthy feet?? AND, she sits right in front of me so she turned that baby to face me ALL. DAY. LONG. 

Finally...100 Days Smarter crowns...
No, we have not had our 100th day of school yet, HOWEVER, I did have to test out the spiffy new crowns from my 100 Days of Fun Learning Activities, and I think they are FABULOUS!! You shoulda seen my kids faces when I put this one on my little friend...they were JEEEALOUS! But they got over it when I whipped it off after 20 seconds. No worries, my little friends. Your 100 Days Smarter time will come soon!!

That's all for now, friends! Hope your weekend is WONDERFUL!!

XOXO Kerri B

Love the mini-tour of your classroom! I had to laugh at the "rogue Legos" . . . we got those in our classroom all the time! Can't wait to read more of your posts.

Your new camera takes great pictures! The first thing I thought when I saw the water was, "Ohmygosh...I cannot imagine how many friends are up and about." Glad to hear your a fun squasher-haha :)

I just found your blog from my friend Robynn's Busy Bees Blog. I love it. Is it weird that I can't stop looking at the creepy baby doll and laughing out loud while I'm home alone. It's not often I find someone with the same sense of humor as me. If that doll was in my class, I'd have to invite all the teachers to come look!!!!!! I love it. Thank you for the Friday night laugh.
