If you lined up some of the best read alouds (see list here) for back to school, I would seriously love all of them and I’d vote for them again and again. But, I would choose Pete the Cat hands down for that very first day back.
Cause he’s all kinds of reliable. I want to bond with these new little people spread out on the carpet in front of me, I want to hook them from the first moments and he’s a sure fire way of doing that.
Not only is Pete the coolest cat around, he’s also part rock star, so basically any of his books can also be counted among my collection of song books.We can sing the story in our quest to become good readers. What more could a 1st grade teacher want in a back to school book? I’ve been relying on him for so many Septembers, I’ve lost count. Regardless, in keeping with my adoration for him, I have put everything I have ever created about Pete in just ONE download. Click HERE and it is finally all in one place. Enjoy.
