Pete the Cat

Pete the Cat has been helping us learn all week with his positive attitude and catchy songs. We read all the Pete the Cat books by Eric Litwin and found out just how cool Pete is. Pete helped us in writing when we labeled his parts. When we write, labels give the reader more information. Then we used sticky notes to brainstorm describing words about Pete.

Pete visited in math and helped us graph our favorite color. We then analyzed our graph and found that most students' favorite color is red and the number of students who like green is less than the number who like yellow.

We can't learn about Pete the Cat without practicing our color words. During reading and center time we practiced writing, spelling and reading all the color words.

Pete's attitude was with us all week: no matter what happened, we kept working and singing our song!

    We love "Klipfel & Kids"!
    We look forward to your posts and seeing what the kids are doing in class. We are always impressed with everything you do. It is also a nice way for Max's grandparents to follow him in school and see first hand what he is doing.
    Thank you for all your hard work and dedication
