1-2-3 Come Do Some More Pete The Cat Activities With Me
I'm back, with some more "Cool Cat" activities that will go nicely with any cat-theme you may have going on. The story element packet is also perfect for Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, or Pete the Cat's Rockin' School Shoes.
The packet includes a variety of activities to help review and practice story elements, and includes pocket cards for character, setting, and event.
Two graphic organizer options, help students write about the beginning, middle and end of the story.
There are 6 Venn diagrams as well, that will help introduce comparison and constrast to your students.
Venn diagrams are a quick, easy and fun way to visually show students similarities and differences.
Children can practice this form of writing, by comparing two different cat characters, 2 different cat stories, and/or compare their shoes with a friend, or even the cat's.
Practice graphing, by having children fill in the color shoe that they are wearing.
For more color practice, I've included a trace and color word worksheet too.
There are also four, "I Spy a Word" games, featuring 56 words. ( Most of them from the Dolch word list.)
All of these words appear in Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes story. The "I Spy a Word" worksheets, are a simple and quick way to whole group assess word recognition.
Choose students to call out a word. Children find that word and then cover it with the little tennis shoe card.
If you don't want to use the game each year, simply have students circle the word when they find it.
For more practice, have them write the words in alphabetical order on the back of their paper. You could also have students use the word in a sentence.
Finally, in keeping with the Pete the Cat stories, there are 3 posters (including a poster-definition of what "the moral of the story" means). So that students can practice reading the repetitive lines, hold a poster up when you come to that part of the story.

Since all of the other "story sliders" that I've designed, have been such popular downloads, I couldn't resist making one for Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes.
To make one, simply run my cat pattern off on blue construction paper.
Students trim and add a bit of color for some pizzazz.
Run off the slider strips and sequencing pictures on white paper. Pre-cut slits on the cat. (I used an Exacto knife.)
Children color the pictures, cut them out and then glue them to their "slider" in the correct sequential order of the story.
When everyone has completed their cat creation, review the story, by retelling it, via the pictures on the slider, adding details when appropriate. Encourage students to share their cat slider with their families, so they can once again retell the story.

Thanks for visiting today. It's one of those perfect-weather days. My grandson is up from his nap, so it's time for a stroller ride. Wishing you a love-filled day.
