Desk pets are erasers or plastic animals and are the latest trend in early childhood classroom management. The students design houses for their pet and take care of them. The students understand that desk pets have tiny little ears, so they don't like loud noises. The pets don't like to be left alone so the students are encouraged to remain seated. The desk pets are incorporated into literacy and science lessons as well. The students are enjoying making desk pets part of their daily routine.
