We have 2 classroom "pets" this year. They are stuffed rabbits. Every weekend I select 2 students to bring one of our class "pets" home for the weekend. They also bring home a journal to write about the adventures they have with our pet. I use this to foster a strong home-school connection and to motivate students to continue creative writing both inside and outside of school. On Monday, students return with the class pet and the journal filled out and ready to share with the class.
This pack includes:
- a cover page for the take home journal
- a direction page for the take home journal
- good behavior tickets
The good behavior tickets can be used for a raffle to see who gets to take your class pet and journal home for the weekend.
I will be posting more about this activity in my blog for December's Monday Made It!
