There wasn’t the term “desk pet” floating around yet, but that was pretty much what we had in our room before this whole craze happened.

Desk Pets make great reading buddies, interesting subjects for creative writing, art subjects, and models for science units on habitats. Students will be thrilled to have 5-10 minutes where they can play with their pets, visit classmates’ pets and arrange their pet’s habitat.I have the Desk Pets binder cover in the pack I linked above, and I'll keep the Desk Pets Checklist, the Desk Pets Information pages and the Agreement pages in the binder. By aligning it with my classroom economy, desk pets are just one option of how my students can spend the classroom cash they earn. The desk pet trend has swept through schools across the country, motivating and rewarding positive classroom behavior, teaching responsibility, and spurring innovative math, science, art, and writing exercises.

Oh So Design is a member of ACID (Anti Copying in Design) and designs are supported by ACID through their Design Databank. I would also encourage you to have students create and sign a contract with you before they earn their desk pets so that everyone is clear about what the rules and expectations are around having desk pets in the classroom. Before you introduce Desk Pets to your students, make sure you have a “Desk Pet Policy” planned out to go over with the students.

What can be a very fun incentive can quickly become a distracting toy if the guidelines are not strictly upheld. 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.

I don’t require my students to participate in desk pets, but it is an option for how they can spend their money. Then I pulled out a few of those mini erasers from my giant collection and offered them as accessories. It is my hope that implementing a desk pet incentive in your room will bring your students just as much joy as it has brought my students over the years.

In my opinion, Desk Pets make an excellent positive reinforcement strategy and a fantastic alternative to treasure box rewards. Consider using punch cards to let your students earn accessories and food items for their desk pets.

This is a great way to show off all of the different desk pets in the classroom that your students have been working hard to earn. For example, if your students earn a play card games day as a class incentive, they can bring their desk pets as an extra reward. They could purchase their desk pet and be responsible for building the habitat of that pet in a central classroom location instead of on their desk. If you are unsure what background colour will work best, or have a specific colour you would like, please contact us. Teachers are using them as a rewards system for good behavior in which the students earn desk pets, as well as food, treats, and other desk pet accessories.

The accessories (see picture below) were small erasers that I had organized into four categories- Fruits and Veggies, Sweets and Treats, Holiday Accessories, and Pet Accessories. Desk Pet Day: Have a day where everyone reads their favorite books or their own writing to their desk pets.
