About this deal

This past spring I introduced Desk Pets to my students after learning about them on Instagram and TikTok. Before class, I traced and cut out different colors of felt squares for students to choose that would go on the bottom of the houses.

I told them that when we had Fun Friday at the end of the week, they would get to choose a Desk Pet to keep at school. As far as organization for all of the Desk Pets information, I'm planning to use the binder shown below to organize everything. One way to do this is to set out collectibles–seasonal items that only come out in particular times of year.As for other AI desktop pet options, there's also the amazingly named EMO desk robot created by Living. Students can earn points for whatever you feel works for your class: completed homework, following directions, acts of kindness, etc.

Before I passed out the Desk Pets to the new owners, those students who earned one had to fill out an application. I think this open ended style of habitat design is really what makes it suitable for upper elementary. For the younger children, a physical item (such as a ticket) helps give them a better understanding of the concept. Instead of focusing on individual rewards, have your students work towards a class goal to help build a sense of community and teamwork.My goal was to keep my students excited and motivated to complete their school work on time, maintain a good learning attitude, and try their best. Instead of using your desk pets to identify the correct number of syllables, students can show they’ve got a handle on the concept of initial sounds by placing their little pet on the image that makes the same initial sound as the letter. Her simple idea launched a TikTok sensation, with other teachers posting their own creative ideas, which are endless.
