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

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!
