Pete the Cat

A couple of weeks ago I won the teacher's guide for a picture book called Pete the Cat from April Larremore's Chalktalk blog. This week my class read the book and fell in love with it! They love the song and all day long I heard my kids singing "I love my white shoes". It's definitely a catchy song! Yesterday we decided to recreate the story in a video. The kids had a ball with this! Check it out on my class wiki! The video is on the bottom of the page.

  1. That is PRECIOUS! Love your blog!

  2. Hi, Leslie Ann! Your blog is adorable! And creative. Sometimes I feel that our district is so focused on standardized testing that lots of the creativity is gone :( Do you deal with lots of pressure from "the powers that be???"

    Keep blogging your cute ideas!

  3. Hi Abby! Thank you so much! I feel like that too. I'm so tired of drilling sounds into my kids heads and progress monitoring them every time I turn around! It seems like that's all we ever have time to do. We had fall break Monday and Tuesday so we aren't having a reading story this week. I'm using this time to do Halloween activities and crafts. The kids are so excited! I hate that we don't get to spend more time doing small fun things like this!
    By the way, I'm obsessed with your blog! Your little boy is so adorable :)
