Here in my neck of the woods, school got started this week. This year, I am inspired by Pete the Cat, written by Eric Litwin and illustrated by James Dean, and his awesome attitude.
Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes. Students from kindergarten all the way through fifth grade loved the predictable text, hilarious illustrations, and glass-half-full perspective of the story.
After reading the story, visit HarperCollins' website where you will find audio downloads for each story as well as videos and printable worksheets.
