Desk Pets - Animal Friends, 40-Pack
About this deal
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. Trends may come and go, but the desk pet craze has to be my favorite “trendy” classroom management technique.Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places.
Students were so excited after purchasing their monkey string, they would occasionally bring the monkey string home with them and bring back fully assembled accessories to put in their house. These adorable and fun critters are being used in classrooms all over for classroom management and positive reinforcement.The containers pictured below are around 2 inches x 2 inches, which is the perfect size for a Desk Pet Habitat! Since I already had tons of small erasers and all of the containers I used to organize Desk Pets, it wasn't too expensive for me to implement. Some teachers have storage containers in the kitchen section and plastic soap travel containers in the health/toiletries section.
They will love imagining where their pet is from and designing a space that is just for their special friend. A classroom management tool is any system or technique that teachers use to keep their students organized and on task. I also make it very clear that the students aren’t to touch their habitat or pet throughout the day.
This is especially helpful if you plan on introducing desk pets during the first few days of being back to school. I had a donation of a few of these Mini Brands and they even have Toy Mini Brands, but those can get expensive, even though they come with six in each package.
