We had some classroom money to spend from our gracious PTO so the kids brainstormed some ideas, the most popular being a class pet! They really wanted a hamster, but I just couldn't handle the responsibility, so we settled on a fish! This morning at Morning Meeting we came up with some names and the kids voted throughout the day. So this is our newest edition, Bubbles!
We went over the care and feeding of Bubbles and talked about how often and how much food he will need. We decided we'd leave him in his little cup until tomorrow morning to be sure the water is settled appropriately. We added a new job to our job chart, the veterinarian, who will be responsible for feeding Bubbles each week.
We were even able to teach Bubbles how to take a selfie! We did our best fish faces, so he wouldn't feel awkward!
And finally, what a spectacular day back at it today! Look at all these Super Stars OFF the chart! The clips that weren't off the chart were all on pink! Way to be focused and respectful kiddos!
