Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons
Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons - Eric Litwin,James Dean

Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons draws readers along with Pete the Cat. This time Pete the Cat is wanting to go outside and play. However, a problem arises when Pete realizes he's missing a button! This book would be really good for Kindergarten through 2nd grade. I would read this with my future classroom and make it into a integrated lesson.  After reading the book and going over some leading questions to help build comprehension, I would have the students help me create a coat by adding buttons. Simple right? Well our coats would have only the amount of buttons in the equations we are working on for each coat with 6 different coats to add buttons to. 

Reading Level: Kindergarten through 2nd Grade

LEX AD350L

Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons has a Lexile level of AD350L. This text tells the story of a cat named Pete who starts out with four buttons on his shirt. Throughout the story, one button at a time pops off of Pete's shirt. Did Pete Cry? Goodness, no! I think this story could be used in the classroom as a fun introduction to a lesson on subtraction. Also, I think this book could be used to build character by teaching children that there is no need to get upset over small mishaps. While reading the text, I would like to have a picture of Pete with buttons attached to his shirt with Velcro. As Pate lost a button in the story, the interactive Pete would also lose a button. This would help give students a visual for subrtraction.

This is a book I recently read to a group of preschoolers at the library.  They loved this book!  We talked about not getting upset over small things and how to just keep on going with life!  It has a cute song that the kids can sing along with for an engagement strategy. We could do a fun activity with this that involves gluing buttons on something.  We could do a writing activity where we write about a time we got upset about something and how it got resolved.

 

It has a 2.0 reading level.

OH MY WORD! This book is so much fun! I have only known about Pete the Cat for a few months and I knew book after I heard about the series. Pete the Cat is ready to go outside and enjoy his day when all of a sudden, one of his buttons pops off! Pete the Cat loses all of his buttons throughout the book but then realizes he has a button that he forgot he had! This book incorporates math while reading. Each time Pete loses a button, they show a math equation to represent what just happened to his buttons. For example, Pete begins his day with 4 buttons and when the first button pops off, there is a page specifically for the math equation. It will say 4-1=3! I would show this book off by having a students dress up in a yellow jacket with 4 buttons tapped to the jacket and each time Pete loses a button in the book, I would have the student take a button off the jacket. This way, the book can come alive for those students. This book is for kindergarten or first grade. The level of the book is 2.0

This book would be perfect for Kindergarten and introducing the math lesson of subtraction.  The rhythm or song of the book would keep student engaged while helping them learn mathematics. Pete the Cat books are also amazing at helping students understanding that things happen that are out of our control, but we keep moving forward and not to let it get you down.  I love the positivity of these books.
