Summer School-The Cats



Congrats Laura for winning my Brown Bear, Brown Bear Activity Pack!
Want another chance to win?  Check out my Facebook page for another chance! :)

I have been a linky junkie lately and I am actually teaching summer school, so I have some fun things to show you!  Each week I teach is a different theme, so I will start with "The Cats".  I did one week of Cat in the Hat and a week of Pete and Splat!  Check out some of the fun things we did!



I wanted to do a fun painting project for the Splat book and found this on Pinterest!  One day we drew and painted him and the next day we used chalk to make his eyes, fur, and belly.
 The week before Pete and Splat we did some Cat in the Hat!
 We cut out an oval for his head, then cut out strips of red and white for his hat!


 One day we read this book:

Then, I took a Splat picture and hid raindrops around the room that had words on each one.  The kiddos found the word and if it was a noun they put it on and around his umbrella...ITS RAINING NOUNS!!

Do you teach summer school?

  1. Kimberly Ann,
    Those Splat the Cat's are adorable. I have taught summer school every single year that I have taught except this year. It is very odd for me not to be teaching summer school.

    1. Thanks! They turned out so cute! I bet the summer I finally don't teach will be super weird for me too.

  4. I love those Splat the Cats. I just started summer school this past Monday, but it is just the right length (1/2 day, 4 days, 3 weeks). Perfect! How long is summer school for you?

    1. Thanks! That is perfect! The summer school I teach for is all summer and can be 3 hours in the morning or 3 hours in the afternoon or both! Some weeks I teach all day and some weeks I only do mornings. I usually teach about 4-5 weeks. The flexibility is nice and having Friday's off is super nice too :)
