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:

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 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 is starting Kindergarten and is excited to begin his day. This book goes through the different rooms of an elementary school and talk about the importance of each one. This would be a great book to read to start the tour of the school. The teacher could pause and have the students guess and predict which rooms that Pete is talking about on each page. After reading the story, tour the school with the students and see if they can locate the same rooms that Pete saw in the story. Once the tour is over, have the students come back to the class and decorate their own school shoes to hang around the classroom.

It's Pete the Cat's first day of school! In this story, we see Pete "rocking" his new shoes all around his new school. In my classroom, I would read this on the first day or during the first week. If I was teaching Kindergarten, I would take my class on a scavenger hunt to find all the places around the school and have a Pete cut-out waiting for them at each stop. If I was teaching a grade where the students were familiar with the school, I would have them do a scavenger hunt in our classroom. I think this would be such a fun beginning of the year activity!
