Pete The Cat: Rocking In My School Shoes
Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes - Eric Litwin,James Dean

Pete The Cat: Rocking In My School Shoes was published in 2011 by Eric Litwin. This story is about a cat named Pete. Pete rocks in his school shoes all the day long. From the time he wakes up, to the time he gets on the bus, goes to the library, lunchroom, and playground Pete never stops singing and dancing about rocking in his school shoes. Needless to say, Pete loves his red school shoes! For an activity, I will provide my students with a coloring handout that has a set of tennis shoes on them. I will ask my students to decorate their school shoes with their crayons and to write some adjectives to describe their cool school shoes! This book is a level 18 according to the DRA book leveling system.

Pete The Cat Rocking In My School Shoes is a fun engaging book that would be great to read on the first day of school to students. One activity that could go with this book would be for students to write about their favorite thing about the first day of school. This book is a level 430L on the Lexile leveling system.

Do you need this book? Goodness yes!
Pete The Cat: I Love My White Shoes - Eric Litwin,James Dean

I worked at  a preschool and this book was my students' absolute favorite book. We had the c.d. and listened along while reading the book. This book is on a DRA reading level of 18, and can be read to students from kindergarten to second grade. It can be used with curriculum to teach colors or adjectives. This book is so cute, and I love the illustrations. It is a must have for teaching younger grade levels.

Pete the cat is back again but this time he is rocking in his school shoes. Pete is starting school and is exploring all different places in the school such as his classroom, the library and the playground. This can be extremely nerve wracking but Pete takes it in stride! This is a great back to school book especially for students who are starting school for the first time. A couple activities that you could link to this is having students doing a writing exercise for something that they experienced for the first time at school and how they handled it. Another activity you could do for this book is having all your students create their own school shoes and explaining to their classmates why they decorated them the way they did.

Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes
Pete The Cat: I Love My White Shoes - Eric Litwin,James Dean

Pete the Cat is a fun book for children to explore colors, repetition, prediction, or Cause and Effect. Pete the Cat is walking along in his white shoes when he steps into piles of strawberries, blueberries, mud, and water. Each time that Pete steps into a pile of something it dyes his white shoes a different color before stepping into water and it washing his shoes clean- but then his shoes are wet! Does Pete let this bother him? "Goodness No!" A fun activity that could engage students following this story is having students color a pair of white shoes. They have to indicate what they "stepped in" to make their shoes turn the color they colored them. But it cannot be something that Pete stepped in. For example, I could color a pair of shoes purple and say that I stepped in grapes. You could also have the buckets of things Pete stepped in and then have students match them to the color that his shoes on little cards turned to introduce cause and effect.
