About this deal

com, the Sell on Etsy app, and the Etsy app, as well as the electricity that powers Etsy’s global offices and employees working remotely from home in the US. Those who already had a Desk Pet for April and completed their requirements for the week could choose three accessories. I have to admit that when I first saw the idea of eraser animal desk pets (thanks to that parent who brought in the erasers four years ago), I thought my 5th graders would be too old for that. Until next time, remember, just because you're a beginning elementary teacher, there's no need for you to struggle like one.

If you are unsure what background colour will work best, or have a specific colour you would like, please contact us. If it were my classroom, I would probably only allow desk pets to be out when students are working in dependently at their desks, and only if they didn't distract them from their work. Before I passed out the Desk Pets to the new owners, those students who earned one had to fill out an application. These small animal erasers give kids a friend right at their desk and a little bit of comfort on a rough school day. As far as Desk Pets being a distraction, only two Desk Pets had to stay in the Day Care Center since their owners were playing with them during class time after a reminder to not play with them during classtime.Desk Pet and Owner of the Week” chart: Instead of a traditional student of the week, you can have a quick photoshoot of the student and their desk pet as a way of recognizing a student who went above and beyond that week. Desk Pets make great reading buddies, interesting subjects for creative writing, art subjects, and models for science units on habitats. I think this open ended style of habitat design is really what makes it suitable for upper elementary. They can still have a desk pet (or more like a shelf pet😂), and they can still participate in building a habitat for that pet. Explore our favorite spelling activities that can be used for a variety of grade levels, with ideas for fun games from our teacher team!

For instance: “My Desk Pet will remain in its home while I work” or “I will not touch others’ Desk Pets without permission,” etc. Each time you leave a review, Apple Podcasts recommends my podcast to other new teachers so they feel a little less alone as they navigate their first few years of teaching. My students were so creative- some asked if they could use the felt as grass, water, or land habitat for their animal! For example, if a desk pet is 25 points, students would need to earn 25 points, before they could submit an application for adoption. Fun With Mama is about creating memorable moments with children through art, creativity, educational activities, and fun experiences.

Set up a fun timeout area like a daycare center (a designated spot on your desk) or a vacation spot (on top of a filing cabinet where they can still be seen, but not touched). However, the pet will not be sitting on their desk until they are able to demonstrate a little bit more self-control.
