I use the first book 'I Love My White Shoes', when I teach colors. Diane and Kelly over on Made for 1st Grade have a cute class book you can make for FREE. Mrs. Jump has a darling art project to go along with it over on her blog. I think she has a whole unit but I couldn't find it. Check it out HERE.
YouTube video. This is the author and the illustrator entertaining some kids with their book. My kids LOVE it!
The 2nd book, 'Rocking in My School Shoes' is great for the beginning of the year where you can find all the places in the school. Also that SCHOOL IS COOL! I think I saw something to go along with this on the web some where but can't find it now. Does that ever happen to any of you? All the time here.
The newest one,' Four Groovy Buttons' is great for teaching subtraction. I put together a little FREEBIE for it. This is how I'm going to introduce/review subtraction this year. I generally do it with cookies but I think the kids will really connect to Pete and his buttons. I love story mats. You can read another post about them HERE. So I made a story mat to go along with it. The kids have buttons and practice telling stories with the buttons. There is even a math station activity.

Nikki over on Melonheadz did the darling graphics!
I'd love to hear your ideas and how you use Pete the Cat in your room.
I hope everyone has a terrific day. Remember: "Did Pete cry? GOODNESS NO! Buttons come and buttons go. It's all good!"
