Classroom Pet

It was a good day back after a refreshing three day weekend. I had three days of fun: Saturday at a ukulele festival, Sunday hiking on Angel Island with my wife (and later, a concert), and Monday paddling on the Estero Americano. Life is good.

Madilynn's mom and dad brought us a classroom pet to enjoy—a prize chameleon. They brought in a deluxe set up complete with warming lamps, misters, self-watering devices, and a large terrarium habitat.

Here's what he looks like.

In centers today, Ryder made this God's Eye weaving. Ones this carefully done are evidence that Ryder can sustain attention and work carefully.

Congratulations, Ryder!

We visited the library today and heard a South African story called Abiyoyo about a boy with his ukulele, his father, a magician, and a fearsome giant named Abiyoyo.

Be well.

Congrats on the classroom pet! Have you heard of Pets in the Classroom? It provides funding to teachers to maintain (and purchase) classroom pets. The website also has some great resources for teachers who have classroom pets! www.petsintheclassroom.org.
