Pete the Cat: Rocking in my School Shoes is such a perfect book to read aloud in the beginning of the school year! I would read it to my Kindergartners, 1st graders, and 2nd graders. This book has such a cute tune through the beginning to the end which makes it so fun! An activity for Pete the Cat: Rocking in my School Shoes could be to write what they are going to do in their school shoes! We could do this as a class (for the Kindergartners), in pairs (for 1st grade), or in groups (for 2nd grade)! We could also use this book for a lesson on rhyming words!
