Pete the Cat

Rocking In Our School Shoes

We love reading Pete the Cat books! That cat really does LOVE his shoes and so do we!

After reading Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes, I took a photo of everyone's shoes.  

I made a Powerpoint with the pictures and displayed it on the Smart Board.  As each shoe was displayed we answered the following questions:
1. What kind of shoes are these?
2. Do you wear these shoes when it's hot, cold, or both?
3. Are these shoes best for walking or running?
4. Do these shoes belong to a boy or a girl? How do you know?
5. Who do these shoes belong to?

Class Book
I printed the slides from the powerpoint and made a class book.

Shared Writing
We graphed each child's shoes by color.  We then wrote how their shoes got to be that color.  For example:  Angie stepped in a pile of ketchup (she has red shoes)
