We got a class pet this week! I decided to get the kids a fish because they don't carry diseases, there are no allergies, and they are easy to take care of. I think it is important for kids to have a classroom pet. It is also very educational. For example, we got the fish today and already did 2 math lessons with him! We did a tally chart and a bar graph to pick out his name! You can download the freebie HERE at my TPT store.
