We love Pete the Cat! Second graders have read/sung the book and watched Pete's Wheels on the Bus video. In the book Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes Pete does lots of great things at school like reading, writing, singing, painting, adding, playing and more. We brainstormed several things that we could do at school that had two syllables: learning, helping, walking, thinking, etc... We used these ideas to complete a rhythm song.
If students finished early they could draw Pete the Cat. Here are some of my favorites!
