On Tuesday, our mud themed book was Pete The Cat I Love My White Shoes, by Eric Litwin and James Dean. In the book, Pete steps in a lot of different things - including mud!
After reading the book, each child made a page for our class book. The teachers helped them to paint their feet, and print them on the page. Painting our feet was tickly!
Having teachers paint kids feet is fun, and makes a cool class book, but we needed to make this even more relevant to the children - so we went outside and really stepped in colorful puddles of paint!
Pete the Cat board, and of course I don't remember. The abundance of ideas available on the web amazes me - and fuels my own creativity and teaching!
