via stuff.co.nzNice article if you click on the link... about having a dog in the classroom. The teacher said the students were calmer and working together better when he was in the room. Now he is a regular class member, with the children taking it in turns to be responsible for him in breaks.
Poppy likes being in my class too - she had only completed her first full day of it before the earthquake hit... but she has started coming to our new venue and also came to Kaikoura on our class dolphin trip. It is great socialising for her and I like seeing her having fun with everyone, except when I am teaching; then she sleeps under the desk.
Does your school allow dogs?
