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.

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?!
