Here is Cooper the Dog, our class mascot, that we have chosen to represent us for the year. Usually mascots represent a sports team and we have noticed that the mascots express some of the special characteristics of the sports teams. So, we brainstormed all the characteristics that describe us as a class then chose an animal that best represented those traits. We also voted for the best name for the mascot and named it Cooper. We thought Cooper was perfect because it is the beginning of the word, 'Cooperative,' which is one of the words that we thought best described us.
Cooper sits on top of our whiteboard and participates in all our class activities...silently. :)
