Meet Engelbert, our class pet!

     Meet Engelbert, our class pet.  I am a big advocate of having pets in the classroom. Over the years, I have had several gerbils and hamsters in my classroom. One year, I even had a hairless guinea pig! My most interesting pet, to date, has to be a bearded dragon, Grendel. Due to his large size, he was adopted last year by a super nice family. Now he has much more room to grow and thrive.

     This year, I decided to write a grant for a new hamster. I went to PetSmart and applied for their grant, Pets in the Classroom. After a few weeks, I received a letter stating my grant was funded! Our class pet should be in the classroom very soon. :)
