Who doesn’t love the Pete The Cat books by Eric Litwin and James Dean?!
If you’re looking for a Pete The Cat preschool music lesson plan, head over to my TeachersPayTeachers store.
Pete is just so likable and easy-going; kids are always a fan of his tales!
Pete The Cat: I Love My White Shoes is a staple storybook in my home collection and one that I often include in preschool music classes. I recently created an entire lesson plan dedicated to Pete and his adventures in his white shoes.
When I was creating this lesson plan, I found songs to to go along with each of the piles and colors that Pete stepped in. This makes it easy to take your class on a journey through Pete’s eyes and to let your students experience each portion of the story.
In addition to songs about strawberries, blueberries, mud and water puddles, I also included a fun “cool cat” chant as well as a “cool cat” song. And of course, there is a song all about shoes!
You can find the full lesson plan in my TeachersPayTeachers store, but here are some highlights:
- 8 songs that feature all different parts of Pete’s story.
- 6 of the songs are easy sing-along songs and lyrics and sheet music are included for your reference.
- 2 of the songs are songs to add to your playlist and will sure to become music class staples!
- Specific instructions on how to use these 8 songs with kids ages 0-5
- Activities are ordered perfectly to keep kids engaged and interested throughout a 30-minute class
This is enough material for a fun and engaging 30-minute preschool music class that kids will love! In additional to musical concepts learned through the songs, kids also get to practice sequencing and storytelling by reenacting the Pete The Cat Story.
Of course if you have your own songs and activities to include, you could easily adapt this lesson plan to include other Pete-friendly material.
Many of these songs could be used again to go along with some of Pete’s other stories.
