Pete the Cat, Rules at School and at Home

This week, one of my read alouds was Pete the Cat, Rocking in my School Shoes.


OH. EM. GEEE.

The kids LOVED it!! I played the audio version of it, and when we finished the book, they BEGGED to hear it again. We did some inerencing activities with it, which I will blog about later, (because I'm a little on the tired side. lol), BUT, you can find the audio versions of some of the Pete the Cat books, HERE.  My kids seriously loved it. I'm planning on making some centers that go along with the books. I'm excited about it because they should be able to do the centers independently enough for the beginning of the year.

But, I just had to share, that I  brought the books home to use to plan, and I read the Groovy Buttons one to Autumn (the almost-4-year-old).


I was SO proud of her!! She was actually subtracting when I was reading the book!! One popped off and rolled on the floor, how many buttons does Pete have now? And she would actually tell me like immediately! And THEN she would count the buttons...it was such a proud mama moment. Sorry, I just had to brag.

Anyway, I just pre-ordered the Magic Sunglasses book!! I was so excited to see that they're coming out with another book! Have you pre-ordered yours yet?? Click the pic to check it out!
