Groovy buttons, colorful buttons, big and small buttons! Kids go crazy for buttons!
We read Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons. It is our 3rd Pete the Cat book that we have been reading, writing about, and filling in a comparison chart. My other Pete the Cat links are here. This link will take you to our Pete the Cat activities from last year.

Here is our chart that we filled out. I really like having lots of books by the same author so we can do author studies and compare the books. When we read the first book and chart the language the author uses, the kids remember and just light up when they hear the same language being used in other books! It is fun to see that light bulb switch on when they hear "Goodness no" in all the Pete books. Teaching the theme of each book is important too. We discuss what we should learn from Pete and if the lesson is the same in each book or different.
We also read and wrote about Pete the Cat Rocking in My School Shoes. We are on a Pete the Cat roll!
