Pete, that Groovy Cat and a Freebie!

The last few days, I've been getting my new "Pete the Cat" activities ready. 

Remember when I posted about our Pete the Cat fun the other day?? Well, my kids are obsessed with him now, so I decided to make our centers and reading next week kind of revolve around him.

So, here is what I came up with....

The first section is filled with book response activities, with options to use as an interactive notebook.

Story structure with problem and solution
Describing Pete
Inferring (using Rocking School Shoes as an model)
Alternate ending
Comparing and Contrasting books

The second section is filled with activities you can do for literacy centers.
Groovy Sentence Scramble
Pete’s Problem – Cause and Effect
Describing with Pete – using adjectives
Build a Pete – following Directions to create their Pete the Cat Craft. I like to use this as a pocket chart center! 

2 Math activities with graphing
Buttons (using real buttons, or I provided a page with buttons)
Favorite Pete the Cat book

These "Groovy Cat" literacy activities are perfect for book responses and literacy centers. There are even math activities added in! These activities are aligned to the common core standards for 1st and 2nd grade.

One more thing before I go, I just wanted to let you know to go check out my FB page...I posted the September Calendar cards last night (BEFORE September - holla!). Go to my FB Fab Freebie tab to download them. I'm almost finished with a year's worth - so make sure you grab the rest while you're there!
