Another Pete Obsession



As the year progresses I like to teach action words, as we say in kindergarten and I know the kids will pay attention if I do it through my friend Pete. I might even be able to hold their attention (okay that was a real exaggeration). I love making books that reinforce a few different skills but I walk a fine line with this since they can take the kids a week to complete. This works for me because they will have an opportunity to practice writing the word I and if things go my way they will remember this sight word a little bit better. I can keep my fingers crossed. If you think you might want this... follow me here and check out my TpT store for some other Pete the Cat goodies.I will post this later for those who might need want this. Okay at this rate I will be doing Pete the Cat holding a pumpkin. Remember to check out my friends at Lesson Plan SOS for an awesome giveaway. Grab this book at my TpT store. Please leave a comment.

Too cute! This will be a great addition in our classroom. I think Pete will be a mainstay in our room this year! it's all good!

Thanks Fran! I love the format of this one. The dots under the words and the cut and paste pictures are awesome! My kiddos will love it!

Fran, Love it. How do you copy your books...back to back or do you cut them and staple them together? Thanks.

Thank you so much for all that you share. I don't know how you get everything in with only 3.5 hrs! I have my kids all day and still don't get to do all the things I want!

Thanks so much for all your great ideas. I have been using everything that you share in my classroom...the kids love it (and so do I)!!!!!!

Donna,
There are directions in the download but my books fold on the outside with a strip encasing them on the left side. I am not a fan of back to back.

Thanks Fran for anothe great emergent reader! You are the best!!!
One question- your friend made a shape "Pete the Cat" using various shapes and the children added the colored squares at the bottom. Were the shapes already cut out for the children or did they cut the shapes themselves? Is this pattern (sizes and directions) in one of your "Pete the Cat" books for sale on TPT?
Many thanks!
Pete Rocks in our school!
