Classroom Pet


This little guy was sitting on the gate outside by my classroom.  I'm surprised he let me get as close to him as he did.  We have quite a few squirrels around my room.  I have a row of small windows in the front of my room that are up close to the ceiling lever ( start about 6-7ft high).  It's fun when the squirrels hang out up there while I'm teaching...so much for my lesson.  I just can't compete with a squirrel!  I've tried many, many times. :P 

I see them all the time run across the lower windows in the back, but most of the time the kids don't see them and I don't point them out. 

I just had a flash back to my piano lessons in college.  My piano teacher had a class room that overlooked a lake and she loved looking at birds and pointing out different species.  I spent SO many lessons pretending to be interested increasing my knowledge of the various species of birds.  You'd think I'd be an expert on birds, but I instead I don't know much about bird and I'm not a fantastic pianist.

I also have what I believe is a skink that likes to hang out around my room.  He disappears for awhile, but always comes back.  He looks a lot like this:


I should start naming my classroom pets.  Any suggestions? :)
