Valentine’s Day has never been cool to Pete the Cat. However, as Valentine’s Day
approaches, Pete realizes he has a lot of special cats he really appreciates.
Follow Pete as he makes valentine cards for all the cool cats in his life.
Before you read the story, introduce the book and tell the children a little bit about it. Follow that with a comment or question that is related to the story such as, how many special people are in your life?
Encourage a discussion so the children can comment, ask questions, and express their feelings.
Set the stage for listening by asking an “I wonder” statement based on the cover illustration.
• I wonder if that heart shaped valentine card is for Pete the Cat?
Next, play the fun SCOOT game. Your students will be actively engaged in answering print concept and comprehension questions.
This activity is easy to prepare. All you will need to do is print, cut, and laminate. If you choose the optional activity, just print, laminate, cut and staple the happy and unhappy faces to Popsicle sticks. You can use the happy/unhappy face Popsicle sticks for other question sets.
