Five Days of Groovy Cat Fun

It's GROOVY CAT WEEK!  I'm teaming up with Pre-K Pages to bring you 5 days of learning fun with our favorite blue cat.  Check back every day this week for new ideas in reading, phonemic awareness, phonics, reading strategies, close reading, and math too.

First up!  Increase your students' reading fluency with this fun song.  I sang this song my sophomore year during my school's production of Bye Bye Birdie. You can find the clip art on these pocket chart strips on the Harper Collin's Website.  I used the pictures from the "Making Valentines with Pete the Cat" download.  While you are there, check out their new video of Old MacDonald and Pete the Cat. Love it!

Here is a link to Pandora that has a sample of the original song tune.  CLICK HERE. 

Here is another example of the tune from YouTube.  

Check back tomorrow.  I will have some ideas for math with the Groovy Cat and a FREE download too.  And head on over to Pre-K Pages for more ideas.

Thanks for stopping by!
