Rocking Out with Pete the Cat

Last Thursday was the first day of classes at William and Mary. I decided that my first day of class read aloud was going to be Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes by Eric Litwin. I played the audio so we could rock out. Most of these students are fairly new to the School of Education. I'm sure that starting class by rocking out with Pete the Cat was a new experience for them. But, they were good sports and jumped right in. The song is contagious!

I'm not the only one who started the first day of school with Pete the Cat. Check out Many's blog post at Enjoy and Embrace Learning. Love the shoes, Mandy! I see a new trend starting...

What was or will be your first day of school read aloud?

I can't believe that the new cohort has already started and you have started another year of great read alouds! Great recommendation for a first-day-of-school read. Will have to get it when I come back to the states!
