Run over to Target if you are in love with all things related to Pete the Cat! While shopping at our local Target I found these colored lunch bags. This is unusual and I knew I had to have them. The lady who was also in the aisle must have thought I was crazy as I was telling my son that it is not often that you find colored lunch bags. Okay, so my son, looked at me a little weird, too. Oh, well.
Anyways, look what I made today from that lunch bag. It is a Pete the Cat puppet! I plan on reading Pete the Cat several times the first few weeks of school as we are learning the colors. I think this will be a great craft project for my kinders to create. I am also going to make a retell center with this puppet. I am going to laminate it prior to adding the shoes. Then, I will attach velcro on the bottom where the shoes go. I am going to make several more pairs of different colored shoes. Children will then get to practice retelling the story and learn their colors. :)
If you'd like some Pete the Cat related freebies go here. There are lots of activities for this and many other books.
Happy Learning and Teaching!
