back in d week, children were invited to bring stuffed dogs to school. we used duct tape (THANK YOU FAMILIES FOR YOUR DONATIONS!!!) to fashion collars and leashes.

so that we wouldn’t get fur sticky, we folded the duct tape in half the length of the collar and leash, then used a little piece of duct tape to fasten.

it was very serious work. a lot of talking to the dog owners about dog gender and dog names.  there were many times the conversation went something like, “is it a girl?”  “no”  “oh, is it a boy?”  “no, it’s a dog.”  of course.

a lot of talking to the dogs, reassuring them that it wouldn’t hurt to get a collar put on, that we were almost done, etc.

this was one of those activities that provided a natural one-on-one experience between teacher and child.

and the collars with name tags came in handy when twin dogs came to school. : )
