Learning with Pete the Cat

We have had such a groovy time learning with Pete the Cat!
Our first unit of study in math was to identify our colors.  This was easy for most but there were a few who did not know this.  Each day as we've learned our colors, we have colored a page from our Pete the Cat book which I adapted a bit from here.  

We have also used Pete the Cat as our inspiration for writing.  As seen in the above picture, we wrote together this speech bubble about the colors.  Each child had a white board to write on as we created the sentences together.  I also had a few helpers for this interactive writing piece as you can tell by the the upside down e.  Oh, well.  We wrote! The bulletin board is displaying our first opinion piece; a Common Core Standard.   I highlighted the color word for them and most were able to trace over it.  Some actually copied the word.  

We concluded the week with the making of our Pete the Cat puppets.  They look adorable!  The kids were so attentive during this following directions and cutting task.  Thankfully,  I had the help of my once a week aide who assisted  during this task.  

Stay tuned for some science!
We conducted our first experiment today!

Happy Teaching and Learning!

    The border is from Barker Creek. I actually obsessed about it and ordered it directly from them. Email me if you'd like the link. I haven't really seen in at Lakeshore.

  4. This is adorable and bet your class loves this display. He really is the cutest cat in town! I have a big book your kids might like too. Thanks for sharing Pete.
