Speaking of fun, what character is more fun than Pete the Cat? Yesterday, our class read Pete the Cat Saves Christmas and did some work with this book.
After reading, we made these really cute Santa Pete the Cats to put up in class for the last few days before break.
In math we are working on comparing numbers with the greater than and less than signs. I made a Santa Pete themed math center for the kids to complete during part of our math time. I printed nine copies of this center and partnered the kids to work on this activity.
If you would like a free copy of this center and recording sheet. Click on one of the pictures below. The clip art is (again) from Melonheadz and the fonts are by Cara Carroll.
My firsties enjoyed this book and really liked having activities to extend it a bit. Pete is very popular and anything having to do with him seems to spark my students' interests.
I'll leave you with a pic from earlier this week. Pete even got in on our elf fun. Groovy.

Have a great week.
