This Thursday, February 20th is National Love Your Pet Day! I have three spoiled cats (Ralph, Rufus, and Moose) who get loving every day, but I will certainly give them some extra treats this Thursday. They deserve all the love because I benefit from them so much! Did you know that having a pet can–
- Decrease blood pressure.
- Improve mental health.
- Ease pain.
- Help keep you fit.
- Provide social connections.
- Decrease stress.
My little house lions are worth every hairball I clean up. This Thursday, use this set of cards to discuss the needs of pets with your students.
Then place this set of cards in your writing center to inspire youngsters’ pet stories!
