Here’s a cat craftivity that’s a great review of all sorts of standards, and is purr-fect for your Pete the Cat theme.
There are 4 different cats to choose from. You can run them off on blue construction paper (for a Pete the Cat one) and have students trim, or run them off on white construction paper and have students color their cat.
There are “sliders” for upper and lowercase letters, numbers, counting backwards from 10-0, shapes and skip counting by 2’s, 3’s, 5’s, and 10’s. Pick the slider for the standard that you want to practice.
To review patterns or odd and even numbers, have students choose 2 or 3 colors and trace the letters/numbers in an ABAB or ABC pattern. To review shapes, have children color the shapes, which will become the “nose” of the cat.
Use the sliders as a review, “I Spy” games, or a fun way to individually assess a child. When you play the “I Spy”
games, students take turns calling out a shape/number/letter and then
move their “slider” to show what was called. When they’ve done so, they
raise their hand. You can tell at a glance who is having difficulty.
Playing these I Spy slider games, is a quick and easy way to whole-group assess.
