It is Pete the Cat time again and we are sending our Pete on an adventure. We have found a nice blue backpack, decorated it with fun foam, and have placed Pete and a composition book in it. We will be picking one great student to take him home each night, play with him, and then write a story with their parent about what they did together with PETE! We will then read the child's page in the class book at circle in the morning. I have done this with a plastic fish but never with an actual soft animal. I am prepared to have him washed frequently! He is ready.
I have been working on a parent instruction page too. I will post that tomorrow as a FREEBIE so check back! He is ready to head out! Told me so himself tonight while we were blogging. I would recommend this activity for preschoolers. They get so excited when it is their turn. The fish we sent home last year even ended up taking a bath with one student! Hopefully Pete will stay dry!
