My First Linky! Let's Get Acquainted!!

Hello!  I decided to participate in my first Linky Party!  I hope I do this right!!

Latoya at Flying into First Grade is hosting a Linky Party to help bloggers get to know each other.  As a new blogger, this is perfect for me!  So here goes

TOPIC - Skittles Game
Here is the code:

Red - Favorite Ice Cream Flavor

Orange - Favorite Memory from College

Yellow - Favorite Sports Team

Green - Favorite Fast Food Place

Purple - Wild Card (Tell anything about yourself)

Red My most favorite ice cream in the whole wide world is OLD FASHIONED BUTTER PECAN. 

Orange My favorite memory from college was definitely my student teaching experiences.  I went to a college that exposed us to the inside of a classroom all throughout my Junior and Senior years.  I think it was great to be in the classroom and learning from experienced teachers. 

I will never forget my first experience in a first grade classroom. The teacher needed time to gather some materials for a math lesson and asked me to read them a book. The book focused on addition.  In part of the book it said something close to....  One lonely frog was sitting on a log and one more frog joined the lonely frog on the same log. On the bottom of the page it said, "You now have how many frogs?"  One little girl feverishly waved her hand.  When I called on her she proudly answered, “Now you have friends!”  On the next page, it said “Two, you now have two frogs.”  The same little girl raised her hand again and told me she thought I was telling the story wrong!  I knew at that moment I needed older students.  The little ones are cute, but boy did I work in that classroom!

Yellow I have to pass on this one.  Watching sports is not one of my favorite things to do.  You really don’t want me to tell you how little I know about sports teams!

Green My favorite fast food place would have to be Moe’s.  Who doesn’t love to hear “WELCOME TO MOE’S” as soon as you enter a place.  My favorite item is their "Homewrecker".  They are huge and I can make two meals from just one Homewrecker!

Okay, I must make a confession. I have twin sons who I totally adore. When they were younger and oh so cute, we went to Chuck E. Cheese like every weekend.  They LOVED playing the games, turning in tickets for junk, jumping in the ball pool, climbing through the tubes, eating gooey pizza, and waiting for the big mouse to appear.  They got to go so often because... #1 They slept like angels after running their batteries out in that place! #2 Mommy, me, LOVED the salad bar and French fries.  I still miss this place!  Okay confession over. Please don’t hold this against me!

Purple I am addicted to children’s books, my classroom library consists of over 4,600 books (I will be posting about my classroom library next week.).  I love watching old TV shows. The Love Boat, Soap, Matlock, Murder She Wrote, Benson, Newhart, WKRP in Cincinnati, Rhoda, and Mary Tyler Moore just to name a few!
