Five for Friday...May 24th

Happy 3 day weekend, Peeps!! Kerri here...

Is anyone else as stoked as me that we have a 3 day weekend?? Well, I guess for those of you already on Summer Break, you have like a 60 day weekend (whatevs!), but for the rest of us, 3 day weekend!! WHOO HOO!!

I can't believe I missed last week's Five for Friday linky. So sad...But it's on like Donkey Kong this week PEEPS!!

First absolute favorite rainforest animal!

Definitely my favorite week of all the weeks I teach my Rainforest Unit. Did you know that there is a sloth called Buttercup and she is some lady's pet down in South America?? OMG!! I want one for CHRISTMAS!!

Number 2....Love is in the air!
I have a MAJOR love triangle, or maybe even a Love square going on in my classroom, and it is SERIOUSLY bugging BIG TIME!
Little Miss Thang brought in colored pencils for Mr. Man, who made a heart to give to ANOTHER girl. (How dare he??)
Meanwhile, yet another boy gave Little Miss Thang a clip-on earring he got out of a toy machine, and they were all passing notes to each other DURING my sloth art lesson. OH. NO. THEY. DIDN'T.  Yes, they in fact did, and here is the evidence...

Of course, ANOTHER boy took one of the hearts and threw it in the trash (he must be jealous), which prompted to 2 girls to stand up in the middle of the sacred SLOTH art lesson, and whisper to each other. Oh man...I was PEEVED. And then, I had to give them the "No girlfriends/boyfriends until your 24 years old, and no more love notes, GOT IT??" speech. Sheesh! It felt like Junior High in my classroom this week!

Number 3: Fabulous Firsties Self-Portraits-these are THE. BEST!
It's all about the peace signs, really...

Tiny head, GIANT shoulders...

Acessories make ALL the difference...

Name brands ARE important...
Number 4: Teacher Seeds of Happiness! This is the baby one, but I got my friend who just graduated from college to become a teacher a GINORMOUS one! I love them!
Is this not ADORABLE??

I NEED this giant one! :)

Last up... This kid cracks me up. "Sometimes my mom irks me." (Good to know...) "Sometimes I flirt with the girls." (The girls at 7-11, he told me!) HA!!

Have a happy weekend, friends!
XOXO Kerri B

Those sloths are the cutest things ever! I love the apples too. I've had to have the boyfriend/girlfriend holding hands and keeping hands off of each other several times this year in FIRST grade! I sometimes wonder if I will see some of my kiddos married when they are a lot older. :)

Loved your five! The sloths look like such a fun way to help students remember what you have learned! I also love the self-portraits and their writing. I just marveled at how well my students were writing by the end of the school year. You last little thing is too cute... sometimes I flirt with the girls.
