Seriously...how could I not fall instantly in love? I realized that I had to get them both. My daughter just HAD to hold them, hug them, and give them kisses while they were in the cart. Thankfully, she handed them to the cashier when it was time :)
So, I wanted a class pet. I got two. You might be asking why. Originally I thought of using one of the dogs as a back-up. Then I realized if I had TWO class pets, they would travel to all the homes in the classroom twice as quickly. The students would not be waiting as long to have their turn.
I had two composition notebooks and got to work. I found some cute puppy-themed scrapbook paper, took photos of the pets individually, and sat down to type the letter for the front of the journal. My letter is written to the families from the class pet. You will notice that the letter has not been signed. I am going to have the students help name our class pets once school begins and then the pets will sign their names to the letters. It has my name throughout, but if you want me to send you a copy, leave me a comment with your e-mail so I can send it to you.
