Practicing Compassion and Empathy While Exploring Animal Care Careers

Help me give my students a classroom vet center, pet vet clinic, poseable puppy, pet dog, and pet cat so they can learn to be compassionate and nurturing individuals, practice communication skills, and explore careers while role playing.

My Students

I have an energetic, inquisitive, and enthusiastic group of 26 seven and eight year-olds in the inner city of Providence, Rhode Island. My second graders are always eager to come to school and love to read, write and problem solve in such thoughtful and creative ways! My students are so appreciative of each other and all that we do every day. They are culturally diverse and enjoy sharing their own unique experiences with the class. We learn from each other. My school is working hard to build community among families and staff, and we have a safe, respectful environment.

My Project

We are practicing to be compassionate and empathetic people in so many ways in the second grade. We are reading books about kindness, inclusion, and diversity. We are also learning how important it is to be kind to animals and would like to further our learning with a special dramatic play literacy and math center. The center would be an animal clinic where we work together to help stuffed animals feel better. We will practice literacy skills by reading and writing about all different pets and their needs. We will practice math skills by researching the cost of the different things pets need. It would be so wonderful for all of us to have this special learning center for our classroom. This year’s class and many classes to come will be able to learn all about caring for animals if we are so fortunate and this project is fully funded. Thank you so much for your time and attention. We really appreciate you!
