Deanna Jump has a new product for download that I love! It is literacy and math activities that go with the book Pete the Cat by Eric Litwin. You can purchase the book at amazon for $11.55 new or $6.43 used. You can download the song Pete the Cat from HarperCollins for free. You will love the song!! It is so cute! You can download Deanna's lessons for $4.00 from Teachers Pay Teachers. The lessons include a pattern for making Pete the Cat, text to self connections, story elements, sequencing, cut apart sentences, and math journal prompts. You will love the lesson ideas!! You can watch a video of the author singing the story on You Tube. The book and unit are definitely worth their cost!!
Deanna has given me a copy of her Pete the Cat unit to give away to 2 lucky teachers!! To enter the give away, go to Deanna's web site and search through all of her ideas. Find something you like and share a way to extend the idea through a comment to this post. Don't forget to leave your email in your post. Everyone who shares an idea will be entered in a random drawing. The contest will end at midnight on Sunday, September 26th. I will announce the winners on Monday, September 27th. Good luck!
