Pete the Cat and the Last Days of School!!

Whew! It has been a whirlwind weekend and week!  I had a great time this weekend at my best friend’s wedding, it was totally awesome, but I am still tired!!! I almost feel like I got married!! 

Ahhh!!!! Back to a lot of things to do this week! I’ve had meetings each day, not to mention my closing of school packet to complete! It seems like everything is competing for my attention, not to mention all of the students that still keep coming to school! I mean, the last day for kiddos is Thursday, and they have been coming  like clockwork!

Well, today was my first day of reading Pete the Cat EVER to my class! I can’t believe what I have been missing! I’m ready to go and buy ALL of them now! My kids picked it up pretty quickly, and we had to listen to it 4 times, and then we have to read it 1 more time and we sang the song ourselves. You should have seen the look on their face when we talked about the cause and effect of Pete’s shoes changing colors. I laughed and reminded them that we were in school, and we were here to learn! Haha!

I used a sheet from First Grade Blue Skies Pete the Cat packet, and my kiddos loved it! I just wished I’d known about him a lot earlier in the year! But I’ll be ready next year!
