Characters, whether human or animal, are a fun way to personalise a classroom. They seem to take on a personality of their own, especially as they can be named, given likes and dislikes and even assigned tasks. Familiar characters like Cat in the Hat and Super Heroes vie with animal friends such as Owl Stars and Sea Buddies for pride of place in a school room situation. They can be great teaching aids as characters can "talk" to kids the way a teacher or parent is unable to. So fill your room with these fun, fanciful friends and watch the pleasure your class gets having them around.
