About this deal

Another perk to providing just the materials for building a desk pet habitat is that students can switch it up. Our Desk Pet Pals Adoption Pack make the best desk pets, with 24 extra adorable, super durable Desk Pets and 20 (yes TWENTY) FREE, downloadable Desk Pet activities. So make sure you have a clear vision of how you’ll use desk pets with your students before you introduce them to your class.

Eilik can be a helpful desk companion too, with features like a countdown timer included to keep you on schedule, and it can play fun games with you to help pass the time.

When you use students’ desk pets in their learning, they will relate to the content better and be motivated to participate. For this next year, I plan to use the small house shown below that I found at Dollar Tree in the toy section for my Day Care Center. We went over all of the expectations on the Agreements sheet (this is found in the Desk Pets Pack, as well as an editable version that you can customize) and students signed the Agreements sheet.

Instead of using a treasure box reward system, I decided to use the "Desk Pets" as our reward system. At the end of the second week, during our Fun Friday, those who earned a Desk Pet filled out a Top Three Wish List, and I passed them out along with their homes. These adorable and fun critters are being used in classrooms all over for classroom management and positive reinforcement. Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places.

Those who earned a new Desk Pet the first week of April followed the same procedures they did in March- they listed their three top Wish List choices and turned that in to me the day before. With a little creativity, desk pets can be used in many different ways to support your classroom community of learners. I also make it very clear that the students aren’t to touch their habitat or pet throughout the day.
