These are often what my students use to warm up! Come on over to Elementary Matters for a free set of warm up phrases, and some ideas on building fluent/ accurate readers!

Easy Reader For Pete The Cat: I Love My White Shoes


Do your kiddos love Pete the Cat?  This is a fun easy reader for students to make, which will help reinforce colors, color words, capitalization, and end punctuation.

It's a nice activity to transition to, after reading Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, by James Dean and Eric Litwin.

Students read the sentence; correct any letters that need to be capitalized, and add end punctuation.  They trace and write the color words in the matching color, and then color the shoe the appropriate color as well.

Teachable moments can be made by the use of various pronouns, as well as plurals in the sentences.  Be sure to point these out to your students as you read the book, as a whole group, after everyone has completed their booklet.

Crayon Melt Apple Craftivity

For fun fine motor skill practice, students peel red, yellow and green broken crayons and then "shave" them with a crayon sharpener to make a small pile.  Children pinch a bit and sprinkle the shavings on the apple that they cut out, being careful not to get any on the area where the poem is.

Teacher puts a piece of wax paper on the top and then presses down for a few seconds, with an iron on its lowest setting.

Gently peel back to reveal the awesome effects. Students add a construction paper leaf and stem, and write their name on the leaf.

Completed projects make an awesome bulletin board, or can be hung back-to-back from the ceiling, by punching a hole in the stem and tying on a piece of yarn.

ACK Family Word Wall Cards from Raki’s Rad Resources

Word family word walls are so helpful to our students, because they give the students a way to recognize common words and build their reading vocabulary.  However, ESL students, and those with minimal background knowledge, often do not know what those words mean.  So, when I taught first grade, I put together a group of word wall cards with picture cues.  Recently, I updated these cards with three different fonts, so now kids get a chance to read these words in a variety of fonts too!

Pete the Cat Story Slider

Help students sequence and then retell Pete the Cat's I Love My White Shoes story, with this quick and easy story "slider".

I call these sliders because students insert their story strip into the slits on Pete and then slide it to show the sequence of the story, as they fill in the rest of the details to retell it. 

I've also included a full-color set of sequencing cards, so that you can quickly make a sample to share with your kiddos.

Pete the Cat Activities For I Love My White Shoes

These are wonderful activities to transition to, after reading Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, by James Dean and Eric Litwin.  Your students will LOVE the catchy little tune.

The 10-page packet is a fun way to reinforce colors and color words.

Use the cards for Memory Match and "I Have; Who Has?" games. Students match the color word card to the matching color shoe card.

For more practice, I've included a mini color word booklet for students to make, as well as a color word matching worksheet.  To help build self-esteem, there's also a "cool cat" certificate of praise.
