Pilgrim Pete {A Shape Activity for Pete the Cat: The First Thanksgiving}

This week we started our shapes unit. We kicked things off by learning about plane shapes (2-D). Does your school have BrainPOP Jr.? There is an awesome cartoon in which Annie and Moby talk all about plane shapes! First, we brainstormed things that looked a triangle (sign, pie, pizza slice, sail) and a circle (whole pizza, ball, moon, clock) to add to our triangle anchor chart and our circle anchor chart, then we watched the BrainPop Jr. and took the quiz. Next, we discussed the triangle and circle in terms of straight sides and corners. Then we spent some time using pattern blocks to fill in shapes. We're just getting started, BUT...

I am soooo excited to have just finished and uploaded my Pilgrim Pete Shapes Activity to TpT. My firsties love Pete the Cat and they love building new shapes out of pattern blocks! So, just in time for Thanksgiving I created this activity which is inspired by the book, Pete the Cat: The First Thanksgiving by Kimberly & James Dean. 

Even though our shape unit will be finished before Christmas, I'm busy working on a Santa Pete shape activity pack too! Because kids love Pete and kids love shapes!
