Hello again, Party People! Kerri here...
I am in a GLORIOUS mood because today begins one WHOLE week of VACAY, baby!! YAY!! We get the whole week off next week, and on Tuesday, we leave for New Orleans! Soooo excited!!
I just love Kacey's Five for Friday over at Doodle Bugs Teaching, so I'm linking up again!!
Here we go...Number 1: Valentine Art!
We did all kinds of fun art this week, and I even got a few pics from some of my BOY colleagues' room. Yes, that's right! I teach with 7 boys! It is really amazing! They keep just the right amount of testosterone on campus, and are basically embarrassed on a daily basis by all of our "lady talk" in the lunchroom. It is pretty hilarious!
One of my 2nd grade boy buddies made these WICKED awesome heart mobiles...
Aren't they cool?
And my 3rd grade boy buddy made these AWESOME heart collages, inspired by Megan Wheeler's fabulous post, and a little prompting by me. Actually, I should call it "shaming" by me, since I came in and totally judged the art he was already doing, so he let me strong arm him into doing these!! HA!
Of course, here are the famous LOVE monsters, inspired by Rachelle's post from last year. I just love love love these guys! The teeth are my favorite!
Next up...Mustaches and juicy lips! I bought these funny drink picks from Target before Valentine's Day and took pictures of my kids holding them. They LOVED them...
HILARIOUSNESS! You also have GOT to see these adorable Valentines...
Isn't that PURE genius?? I am TOTALLY stealing this idea for next year!!
Number 3: Carson-Dellosa BOHO birds!
This ginormous box showed up yesterday from Carson Dellosa, full of their new bulletin board set called BOHO BIRDS. I seriously am in LOVE. First of all, BIRDS! Enough said. Second of all, these are TOTALLY my colors. And, thirdly, my back bulletin board needs a face lift in the WORST way! Stay tuned for a bulletin board makeover...
Fourth...We Heart America!
When we get back from break, we will be learning all about our Presidents and America with my We Heart America! Math and Literacy Centers. I am so excited for my kidlets to use these again...
If you are looking to infuse a little Americana into your classroom in the next 2 weeks, you can click on the picture above to check these out!
Finally, Party boat. I'm going to let this one speak for itself...The prompt was "If I had $100..."
Notice the disco ball on the boat? Yup. A disco ball...I mean, it really ISN'T a party boat without a disco ball, is it?? :)
That's all I got! I'm off to Soup Plantation and then my Katie's Talent Show. Happy Friday, friends!
