Pictures of the Pigs

Here are some pictures of our newest classroom pets: Fluffy and Kiss:

Fluffy is on the left and Kiss on the right (Fluffy is the brown calico and Kiss is the gray and white pig)



They are one month old guinea pigs.  I feed them a piggy salad (romaine lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, spinach, parsley, strawberries, and other fruits and veggies) two times a day along with their hay.  Now…how to figure out how I will get them to school…hmmmm!

    You should check out There is a grant available called Pets in the Classroom that provides up to $150 to K-6th grade teachers for the purpose of purchasing a classroom pet and/or pet supplies. It’s really easy to apply for and you hear back within a week as to if you will receive it.
