Bring Your Pet To School Day

Charlotte brought a cockerel
And Hal a dozen hens
Paul brought a porcupine
And made us all quill pens

Gordon brought his goldfish
But sadly not its bowl
Hamish brought his hamster
(Later eaten by Al's owl)

Thomas brought his tortoise
Which strangely arrived late
And teacher brought his pet
A swotty girl called Kate

About the Poem

I'd rather assumed that bring your pet to school days were an American idea, but they certainly appear to have caught on in the UK as well. They offer great fun, a smidgeon of educational value and huge possibilities for classroom chaos.
