At the end of the day, I want my students to put their Desk Pets away to minimize the risk of them getting lost or “disappearing. Long-term, why not tie in those science standards and challenge students to build their Desk Pets a habitat? Once your students adopt their pets, they get to keep them at their desk — hence the name – and what comes next is up to you.

The students were so motivated and excited to earn one, and they were so proud of themselves when they reached their goal! My favorite things teachers offered for sale were homework passes, or lunch in the classroom with the teacher. Some who were completing minimal or no classwork and asynchronous work were getting Xtra Math and other assignments completed each day. You might consider having other items available for purchase such as stickers to decorate their habitats or mini pet blankets made of small squares of material. I can also tell you that they sat in a cute little organizer up in my cabinet for probably the first three years of teaching, and I never touched them.

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.

This is especially helpful if you plan on introducing desk pets during the first few days of being back to school. Once the pets have been adopted, students earn points to spend on pet accessories and earning extra pet playtime and teachers incorporate the pets into their lessons, including discussing, creating, writing about, and drawing animal habitats and environments; keeping daily pet diaries; drawing, painting, and sculpting the pets; and more. It often only takes one or two pets visiting the zoo for students to realize that when I say not to touch the pet during the day, I mean it. So, now that we've covered the basics of what Desk Pets are, let's talk about how to best manage them in your classroom! Other teachers have set up desk pet daycares, pulled them into Fidget Friday activities and a whole lot more.Ensure that you set up very clear boundaries around when students are allowed to have their desk pets out. Whether you're looking for the best surfing spots, seeking recommendations for restaurants, or interested in the latest updates in local politics, /r/orangecounty is your community forum. Each time you leave a review, Apple Podcasts recommends my podcast to other new teachers so they feel a little less alone as they navigate their first few years of teaching. Even better is the fact that this little desk pet has become a part of their classroom learning experience. Desk pets are a new emerging trend where even the best desk accessories are now becoming sentient, and this latest branch of 'emotional intelligence' robots can broaden the social interactions that humans have with their AI devices.
