Well, the Pete the Cat school tour was such a hit that it continued into the next day . . . and then the day after that (today). Yesterday we read Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons
The kids were so excited to search for his four groovy buttons that he had lost while playing in the classroom. Of course, we then had to write him another note, returning his buttons and thanking him for visiting our classroom again. We then had to ask Pete a few questions, such as "Where do you live?" and "What is your address so we can write you a letter everyday?" Pete kindly responded this morning and I think I was able to sidestep any other requests about writing everyday letters to good old Pete. I think he may make a return at Christmastime (if I'm up for the challenge) though a few students still seem to see him all over the school; they hear him singing in the halls, mewing in the vents, and see his tail in the gym. Ahhh childhood innocence.
It really has been fun having Pete visit the classroom, though I'm exhausted! Can't wait for Friday!
