Now, on to the linky party...
 
 
For those who are new to my blog, let me tell you a little bit about myself.  My name in Cori (short for Corinne) Blubaugh (a.k.a. Mrs. B) and I live in San Diego with my husband and two dogs (a Schnoodle and Italian Greyhound).
 

 
We recently moved into a new house (still renting because San Diego has a really expensive housing market : ).  My mom gave me a house warming gift of a wine fridge!!!!
 
 
I am a red wine drinker, and this baby keeps my reds perfectly chilled.  It used to be hard to drink reds during our San Diego summers, because I was already hot, and then my red wine sitting out on the counter wasn't much better, and just made me feel even more gross and sweaty!  Wine fridge = problem solved! Woo hoo for red wine in the summer! : )
 
I LOVE Scentos markers!  After my kids finish something in their interactive journals (Science, Social Studies, Poetry).  They come over to me with their journals, I do a quick comprehension check, give them a "smelly star" and quickly enter their grade into our online grading system.  My kids leave my table with their heads buried in their notebooks, smelling the delicious artificial marker smells (chocolate is my favorite)!
I love to laugh! At home with my friends and family, and especially with my kindergarten students!  I love corny jokes, and I adore sarcasm.  For these reasons, I love to read my kids Jan Thomas books.  The Rhyming Dust Bunnies are certainly a favorite for my students and I.  I love that she writes the books with so much humor (and great punctuation practice). As my students' reading skills improve, they are able to read her books independently.
 
 
My Big Mean Dust Bunny voice is pretty popular with my kids I must say : )
 
 
Teaching kindergarten is hard work!  I go home most days completely exhausted, but my heart is always full.  I have the best stories to bring home to my husband!  Those kids are always saying things that crack me up!
 
Student - "Mrs. B, what are freckles?"
Me - "Those are the brown spots I have on my face, those are called freckles."
Student - "Ohhhhhhh, I thought those were called barnacles?"
 
I seriously can't get enough of those little moments that have me rolling on the floor laughing, and making me feel like I am so lucky to teach these little people, and can't believe how happy my job makes me!
 
I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit about me! Make sure that you link up with the Kinder Tribe blog so that I can learn a little bit more about you as well!

    1. I have had a really hard time finding them too, and they are kind of expensive on Amazon! I have a pretty good stock, but hopefully they will start appearing with all the back to school stuff in the stores! : )
