This week we did several activities with the book Pete the Cat: I love my White Shoes. Everyone was so into the book and remembered it's predictable text right away! This would be a great book to add to your home collection!
The first time we read the book, we matched up cards of various things Pete either stepped in in the book, or could possibly step in, and what color it would turn his shoes. This is great practice for predicting and thinking skills!
The next time we met with Pete, we made our own Pete the Cat pictures and colored his shoes our favorite colors! All of the shapes we needed for Pete were already cut out for us, but we had to wait and follow the step by step directions to put Pete together. All the students impressed me! They did a great job!
This week we will be talking about Apples! I can't wait! Apples are one of my favorite themes! A few things to be on the lookout for in your child's folder this week:
- individual school photo order forms
- apple glyph project to do at home and send back to school
- September/October newsletter
