Pete the Cat Saves Christmas in Kindergarten

Okay, we all know my love for Pete. If you don't - this post will seal the deal for you on my obsession. Yesterday I decided to give my kiddos their Christmas presents early, for various reasons. 1 of them being I wanted them to enjoy a new book without it being crazy Christmas season and 2 - I really needed a project in the hallway! Shameless! But look how cute they are! And there was a little writing project to go with it.

Need help fitting it into the standards - Check out this fabulous resource here. This is the overview of the books from this teaching guide for the Pete the Cat.


 Random Acts of Kindness. In Pete the Cat Saves Christmas, Pete says Christmas is a time to give to others. Discuss how even the smallest act of kindness can mean so much to someone else. Have the students brainstorm a list of ways they can show kindness (e.g., ask someone to play at recess, help a parent cook dinner, share a snack with a friend). Then have students choose an idea from the list to write about and/or illustrate. Display their work in the classroom. CCSS: W.PK.3, W.PK.11, W.K.3, W.K.8, W.K.11, W.1.8, W.1.11; SL.PK.1, SL.PK.4, SL.PK.5, SL.PK.6, SL.K.1, SL.K.4, SL.K.5, SL.K.6, SL.1.1, SL.1.4, SL.1.5, SL.1.6
 Over break I really want to try and scan the pattern for you all. But for now check out this cool freebie for a different version of Pete. 

 Now, how cute is this door! My aide is the best! I got the idea from here

 The kindness that comes from these kids is just the best.





So glad we got to read out story today and create our craft before our practice for the Christmas program. Today we will be doing at least one more literacy based project. Here is a little book by Heidi Songs that I am going to use to retell the story. There is also a color by word family worksheet.

How cute is this ornament?!
