My 1st grade student spent a couple of weeks listening to Pete the Cat stories, viewing videos, and discussing and comparing the stories. They wrote their own version to Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes. I recorded their readings of the page they wrote for their version of the book. To make this an authentic activity we invited our Superintendent, Principal, Program Manager, Librarian, a Board Member, and other school support staff to the debut of the video. It was an exciting and productive way to show off their work.
