Pete the Cat - I Love My White Shoes: Lesson Plan

Theme:  Colors

ReadPete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes by Eric Litwin and James Dean

Craft:  Cut out shoe prints from white poster board. Have your kids decorate the shoes using do-a-dots.  If you feel adventurous you could punch holes in the shoes to make the shoes seem as if they have lace holes and your child can lace up the shoes with string or real shoe laces.  Remember to let the painted shoes dry before starting any lacing!
Do-A-Dot Rainbow Art Set (Set of 6)

Supplies:
  • Book
  • Do-a-dots (or some other art medium)
  • White construction paper, poster board, or cardboard 
Extension:
  • Make multiple footprints.  After they have dried lay them on the floor and jump from one to the next.
  • Count how many dots there are of each color on each shoe.
  • Make a graph for the number of dot colors there are on each shoe.
Not trying to reinvent the wheel here.  The Pete the Cat art activity was inspired by Teach Preschool
