Conference Week & Pete the Cat

We had a short week this week with conferences. Thanks to all the parents that came to visit! It was enjoyable to see the families again and to share the progress that the kids are making! They loved making these cute school house folders to hold their “portfolio” of things that I shared with their parents.

We had a VERY fun week with short a and reading and singing along with Pete the Cat by Eric Litwin. These were some new books that we found this summer and I am not sure who had more fun with them…the kids or me! We were reading a story in our reading book called A Day At School and so using the story Pete the Cat Rocking in His School Shoes was perfect! We then brainstormed things that we do at school like Pete and the students created these art projects using their name “________ is rocking in his/her school shoes”. The kids then did a writing project where they told about what they do at school. We then displayed them in the hallway for parents to see when they came for conferences.

Of course we had to make a “class” book to add to our library about Pete the Cat. They came up with their own versions of what happened to Pete and how his shoes changed color. They were very creative and love to sing along with our new book!
