More than just a fun novelty! Did you know that research shows that having a pet in the classroom can improve empathy, respect, and responsibility? Kobe, our classroom bunny, does all of that and more. The 4th grade students are learning a lot about responsibility because they feed and clean up after him everyday, as well as care for him over the weekends! Kobe also helps the students feel comfortable and excited about learning. Everyday eager students arrive early to pet and play with him before school starts and reading and spelling work suddenly become very special when Kobe decides to join you. If you haven’t met Kobe yet, be sure to come on by to give him some pets and feed him a treat or two.
