Desk Pets Add Fun to Writing Assignments


Dylan Hunt

A desk pet is a pet you have at school. The yearbook classes and a few others have them. They are small pull apart erasers shaped like animals. They are a lot of fun. One of the fun things we did with them is give them names and backstories. We have also written informational pieces about them.

There was something funny that happened to one of them. It was broken and there was no fixing it so we gave it its own funeral. (RIP Fishy.)  My pet is named Bamboo. She is the queen of the world and loves to play with her friend Snow.
