Are your reading Pete to kick off the year?


My kindergarten friends asked me to make a headband for students to wear home on the first day of school. It has to be Pete the Cat! Picture your students hearing this fabulous book, singing the song, and going home with a positive message about school. Another year... make it your best ever. This is just a quick little freebie that your students can color ( Have everyone hold their blue crayon in the air before it hits their paper- just sayin'.)
You can put this on a sentence strip if you want quick and easy and see who can actually write their name. Okay now run around the room like a nut putting names on most of them.) Who said teaching wasn't a workout? Grab your Pete right here.
I want to know who has the guts to let them cut this out on the first day of school. It might be a good idea to wait a bit before you release the scissors to five year old people.

I love this -- but with 26 kinders, I have not yet been brave enough to get out the scissors!

Thanks Fran! Pete is cool and so are you! Today I put some of the tags I bought from you all over the room. I loved typing the names in. Way faster and nicer than handwriting them!

I can't wait to read Pete to my students!

Thanks- I love Pete the Cat and haven't read him to my Firsties yet. We can still make this, even if it's the fourth or fifth day of school....

Bless your brave soul Amanda! Just kidding. We did this at my school and they adored the activity. It was so cute watching them all march out with Pete on their heads!
