Pete The Cat

This Tuesday, at Growing Readers story time, we continued our lessons on animals.  We’ve talked about pets in general, dogs, fish, rabbits, and this week, our theme was cats.

Our friend, Pete the Cat - Growing Readers story time

Our favorite feline friend, Pete the Cat, was back with his magic sunglasses.  Pete the Cat woke up feeling grumpy, but his magic sunglasses help him discover the good mood and happy feelings that have been tucked deep inside him all along.  In this book, Pete the Cat runs into several friends who are sad, mad, and blue.  He helps change their mood with his magic sunglasses.  His positive outlook transforms even the worst days into sunshiny goodness.

We read…

books with a cat theme - Growing Readers Story Time

We sang…

  • If You’re A Pet and You Know It
  • Can You? (hope like a rabbit, jump like frog, etc.)
  • Sticky, Sticky Bubblegum

We worked on our numbers…

Down Around the Corner

Down around the corner at my mom’s pet shop,

Were 5 [little] kittens with a bow on top.

Along came someone with a nickel to pay,

And they bought a [little] kitten and they took it away.

(For each verse we took down one of our kittens and replaced it with a nickel.  We then counted kittens and nickels as a group.)
