Do you read Pete the Cat’s “I Love My White Shoes?”
Pete the Cat
is one of my students’ all- time favorite characters. “I Love My White Shoes” is perfect for practicing the “sequencing and retelling a story
With that in mind, I designed this quick, easy
Pete the Cat story “slider”
craftivity, that will help your students retell the story in the proper order.
There are several slider options.
* Check comprehension
by having older students color, cut and glue the pictures in the correct sequential order
on their slider.
* For PK kiddos I’ve also included picture cards in the correct order, as well as a slider with the pictures already on the strip, which will skip the cutting and gluing steps.
As with all of my products, I’ve also included a full-color copy
so that you can quickly and easily make a teacher’s sample to share with your students, helping to explain what you want them to do.
Run Pete’s head off on white or blue construction paper.
I cut the slits on his “neck” using an Exacto knife. Took me just a few minutes to do a class set, so that children can easily insert their “storytelling strip”.
As they pull on the end of the “slider” the various pictures go through Pete’s “neck window”, so that children can take turns retelling the story
to a partner or reading buddy, then take Pete home to share with their family, once again practicing these standards.
Storytelling sliders are also an easy & interesting way to assess comprehension
I introduce the lesson by reading “I Love My White Shoes”
, then share my completed "slider craftivity” with my students.
After I read the story, we retell the tale together using the picture prompts on my slider.
My students now know what’s expected of them, and are very excited to transition to making a Pete the Cat
story slider of their own.
I’ve also included a color as well as BW “Here’s What Happened…” writing prompt worksheet
, as another way to check comprehension
, plus practice sequential writing
Hopefully students will be using a variety of ordinal numbers or other transitions.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy learning how to sequence with a story slider, as much as mine do.
If there's a story you'd like to have a slider for, I do take requests
