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

 

Brief Review:

Pete the cat (Rocking in my school shoes) is about a young cat named Pete who goes to school in his new school shoes, as he goes throughout the day he sings his song. And says he’ll do it all over again tomorrow.

Idea of how it can be used in a classroom:

Pete the cat (Rocking in my school shoes) could be used on one of the first days of school to get students to come out of their shells a bit. The teacher could ask the students who here got new shoes for the first day of school or even have the students color a pair of their own school shoes on paper.

Reading Level & Leveling System:

Direct Reading Assessment

18

Pre-K to Second

Book Rating:

I would rate this book a 4 because it could be used as a ice breaker for students on their first couple of days at school and maybe even help them make friends with others.

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

Pete the Cat sings all during his first day at school about his new school shoes. 

I would use this as a first day of school book. I would give students a chance to sing along with me after the initial reading. I would give students a map of the school that is labeled. As a class we would circle the places that Pete went. It would help the student familiarize themselves with the school.

Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes is an ideal text to read to students on the first day of school. It's Pete the Cat's first day of school, but he is fully confident to conquer the day in his special shoes. He encounters all of the different places in the school in his awesome shoes. After reading this text, teachers could take their students on a tour of their new school so they can become familiar with all of the new places. They can have a checklist as they go throughout the school and mark off each location when they see it.

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

Pete the Cat loves his new white shoes and sings his song as he walks down the sidewalk. But does Pete get upset when he steps in strawberries and his shoes turn red? Goodness NO, Pete continues to sing his song as he goes on his way. 

 

A great read aloud for younger grades. Students can then come up with new colors for Pete's shoes to turn into. This book is also a great book for students to practice retelling.

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

Pete the Cat: I love my White Shoes, written by Eric Lorain, is such a fun book when learning colors. Pete the Cat Wales around town in his white shoes and steps into certain things that causes his shoes to change colors. I can  use this book in my classroom when teaching colors and connecting colors to what the students see on a daily basis. I can give my students a specific color item in the classroom and have them go and point it out so that I can get them accustomed to acknowledging colors!
