Rockin' with Pete the Cat!

We had so much fun with Pete the Cat this week!  We have been singing his songs all week! Check out this live retelling by the author Eric Litwin.  

After reading and singing along with Pete, we made our own Pete books for our book boxes.  

We learned about bubble maps and how we use them to describe.  We made a class bubble map about Pete.  

Then we went to our seats and filled out our own.  These came from Deanna Jump's Pete the Cat pack.  

On Friday, we ended our Pete the Cat fun with this fun craft.  They turned out great!  They all look so different! I love it! I can't wait to hang them outside with our Pete the Cat sentences! 

We also learned about the letters Uu, Vv, Ww, and Xx this week.  On Monday we learned about the letter Uu and read a book about dinosaurs wearing silly underpants. Then we drew ourselves wearing silly underpants.  You wouldn't believe the giggles! 

On Tuesday, we learned about the letter Vv.  We read a the book, "Grandpa's Garden.  It was about a boy and his grandpa growing a vegetable garden.  Then we made vegetable visors!

On Wednesday, we learned about the letter Ww and read one of my very favorite children's books, "Where the Wild Things Are".  Then we made our very own wild things. 

On Thursday, we had a lot of fun with the letter Xx.  We read a book about X-rays and did the bone dance.  

On Friday, we had the pleasure of having Mr. Atterbury's 5th grade class come read to us.  It was so much fun seeing "big kids" reading!  :)  

Next week we will be finishing up the alphabet with the letters Yy and Zz.  We will also begin working with numbers 0-5 (reading, writing, representing) and we will begin our Apple unit.  :)
