Pets in the Classroom Helping Miss Gregory’s 4th Grade Class!
Here is what Miss Gregory has to say about Pets in the Classroom!
“I can’t tell you enough how much my 4th grade class loves our class pet
Sammy (bearded dragon). He is a reward for on-task students to hold and
play with as well as a job that rotates throughout our class (pooper
scooper, feeder, sprayer, handler). They all can’t wait for their day
to get involved (even the pooper scooper)! It is amazing how much one
little pet can make such a difference in a classroom. I wish I would
have known this years ago.
Again, thank you so very much.”
