Listening and Learning Activities with Pete the Cat

Pete the Cat books are not only perfect for the first of the school year, but all year long.   I especially like to begin the first day of school with Pete the Cat:  I Love My White Shoes and Pete the Cat: I'm Rocking in My School Shoes.  The first provides a framework for building your classroom community.   Young children can connect to Pete the Cat's character as an example for what to do when things don't go as planned.

CIRCLE TIME GAME
                                  

You will need a Pete the Cat Puppet, Pete the Cat Stuffed animal, or this DIY Pass Pete (Directions below).  Have your students sit in a circle.  Introduce the chant.

Hi there Pete the Cat.
Go see ___________.
Scat!

Teacher models how this will look during circle time.  Teachers looks at Pete the Cat as if giving him directions.  Teacher then passes Pete to the person on the left when she says, "Scat!" This student nows says the chant.

Hi there Pete the Cat.
Go see (student on left side).
Scat!

Play continues until Pete gets passed around to everyone and makes it back to the teacher.  This game is great as a "Getting to Know You" routine and learning each other's names.

BUMP IT UP

When the students have masted this activity, place your students' pictures or name cards inside the Pass Pete container.  Teacher models activity.

Teacher draws out a name card.
Teacher reads the name card.
Teacher inserts the name of student in the chant.

Hi there Pete the Cat
Go see Kathy.
Scat!

Teacher takes Pass Pete to the child (Kathy).  This student (Kathy) draws a card and repeats the same steps.  Play continues until all names have been read.

DIRECTIONS FOR MAKING PASS PETE


1. Use an empty cylinder Kleenex container.  Have you seen these Kleenex containers?  I love them and have been collecting them.  You know you're a teacher, when you save your trash and turn it into treasure :)  You could also use an empty Pringles can.

2.  Cut yellow paper to fit the height of the container.  

3.  Wrap the yellow paper around the container and secure with tape or glue.  I used yellow masking tape to secure this one.  

4.  Download a copy of this printable to use for Pete's head.

5.  Trace the head on blue paper and make a tail out of the blue paper.

6.  Cut out yellow eyes and fill in with a black marker.

7.  Laminate the head for durability.

8.  Glue the Pete's head to the front of the container.

9.  Optional:  Add 4 pieces of velcro to the front of the container and on 4 buttons.

10.  Connect the buttons to the velcro.

11.  You can make a Pass Pete Stick using a paint stick, yellow tape, buttons and the same head.  Laminate the head for durability and secure to the paint stick.  I used velcro to attach the head and the buttons.

  30. Your blog is very informative. Eating mindfully has been very hard for people these days. It's all because of their busy schedules, work or lack of focus on themselves. As a student I must admit that I have not been eating mindfully but because of this I will start now. It could help me enjoy my food and time alone. Eating mindfully may help me be aware of healthy food and appreciating food.

  55. I just stumble on your post this afternoon.good stuff!
    im just reaching out because i recently published .“No one appreciates the very special genius of your conversation as the
    dog does.” for pets lovers that might be a good stuff.
    Desperate times require desperate measures. So, it's important to keep a strict eye on your stocked pet food. Since you will be with your pet almost all the time, you might be tempted to feed him extra just to keep him happy. Avoid doing so because your pet is already without physical activities and it will be wise to not run out of food before the lockdown is over.
