Change It Up!

Your students will enjoy doing an innovation on this story and drawing a picture of what Pete might have stepped in. A class book is always fun to make and usually ends up being  a class favorite that is read often. On the last page you can have the children sign their names as the authors! This is easy to create and we all need easy-right?

When I put all the pages together I just bind it with a strip of folded construction paper at the top. This is a cute way to practice reading and writing color words. For the kids that are not ready to write color words just use a yellow highlighter, write the word in the space and encourage the child to trace it with a pencil. Feel free to click here for this class book.

Hi Fran,

I hope you are enjoying the conference. I love the Pete the Cat packet, I downloaded it last night and I can't believe how much information it contains. I also spent hours reading through previous blogs and loved them.

Take care,
Pat I.
