Meet Spike, our classroom mascot. I first fell in love with the idea of a classroom mascot from Angela Bunyi years ago. I found this particular plush doll from a local teacher store. He's called an UglyDoll. There are so many cute ones out there. We've had Spike in our classroom for two years now, and my students absolutely love him. For Valentine's Day, Spike received a card from almost all of my students. He reminds us of important events, reteaches important concepts, and always has a kind word. The kids know that I have a terrible memory, so I always forget birthdays...but Spike never does. He's a lifesaver. Did I mention that I teach 5th graders?
My students aren't too old for dolls, and I bet yours aren't either.
Keep Smiling...it's Friday!
