Cat Thursday - Cute Cat for the Win!


 Welcome to the weekly meme hosted by The True Book Addict that celebrates cats; their foibles and humorousness and the joy they bring. You can join in by posting a favorite LOL cat pic you made or came across, cat art or share with us pics of your own felines, then post your link up at The True Book Addict.

So, I've mentioned before that I sometimes share the pics of Goof on my cell phone with the kids in my classes.The other day one of my girls, who was procrastinating using the toilet, asked to see Goof. I told her to use the potty and when she was done, we'd look at Goof. Off she trots to the bathroom.

Then, one of my boys who had finished snack and didn't want to put his dishes away, asked to see Goof. So I told him to put his dishes away and we'd look at Goof. Off he trots to the kitchen.

When they were done, we looked at pictures of Goof and of course, other children gathered around to look. :D I wonder if I could convince my employer to give Goof a stipend as a teaching assistant? Not that what I did was best teaching practice but sometimes you just do what works.

These are their current favorite pictures:



Cute cats, motivational tool for toddlers and a teacher's friend. :D

  9. What a great story! I say, whatever works. Kids love animals so much so you're actually doing them a favor. :) I do think Goof deserves some form of compensation. ;)
