Rat is to school as distraction is to children...

...or something like that!

Miss Monique came to school today!


Not sure why, but the kids decided Monique would enjoy learning about analogies and angles today. So while we were doing this matching game...



...and measuring these angles...



...our little "Miss Neeka" was having a snack.



We did a bit more practice...



...while Monique went back in her "home away from home" to enjoy her pretzel.



But by the time we got to our poetry lesson...





...Monique was bored with school and ready for her nap.




Rats really do make wonderful small pets for kids. They are friendly, curious, and easy to care for. Miss Monique is nearly three, which is pretty old for a rat. If you have a kid begging for a pet and you can't have a dog or cat, a fancy rat would be a good choice.

However, they aren't big fans of poetry!

My son wants a pet rat pretty badly, but we have told him he has to keep his room clean before he can have one .... so that may never happen! Your rat is cute.

Sara, it's easier to keep a rat's cage clean than a little boy's room! :-)
