Anyway. Since I already have the rest of this week's new doodles as well as flashback doodles all planned out, I won't use any of those for today. Instead, I have decided to find another flashback doodle to share. This one is from 2018, so it hasn't starred on our blog in 2 years. I went for one that stars my angel Rosie and her angel brother Sammy. After all, their birthday is coming up on Tuesday, so it only seems right they get some extra time on our blog. Back when I created this doodle in 2018, I was honoring the fact that my angels Rosie and Sammy always helped me with my homework when I was a kid. That often meant they sat on my textbooks and notebooks, but so be it.
I wonder if any of the children doing remote learning these days get help like this? I hope so.
Happy Caturday to all!
Did you know?
Did you know that studies have been performed on how animals in classrooms can benefit children? It's become more commonly known that animals can indeed help children feel comforted and more confident, overall helping children with their emotional needs as well as their communication skills. Studies on animals in classrooms have resulted in even more specific findings, though. For example, it has been observed that having an animal in the classroom can help children focus and follow instructions, ask relevant questions, and interact with their teacher more. In some studies, it was overall found that less emotional distress and outbursts occurred in children when an animal was in the classroom. There is of course the concern that some children might become distracted by an animal in the classroom, but once the novelty of it wears off, studies have shown that children can greatly benefit from having a furry friend present as they learn in the classroom.
