I believe that middle school students should be allowed to have class pets. Do you agree? Studies from Pets in the Classroom online show that having a pet in the classroom can actually lessen the tension or stress for most people. It also provides an opportunity for new ways to learn. Students get to experience what it’s like to have a pet in their life, if they haven’t already had the privilege. If a student is getting a pet or just got one, it can give them an insight on the do’s and don’ts of owning a pet. Lastly, having a pet will likely teach students respect, commitment, feelings/sensitivity, and that sharing is caring.

    Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I
    submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.

    Do you have any tips and hints for inexperienced blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

    Thank you! We are a middle school newspaper and students are in grades 6-8. We publish our school newspaper in print quarterly and try to stay updated online which is hard to do.
