We read this one alot and he almost has the enitre book memorized so I wasn't sure how it was going to go using it this week but he liked reading it "for school." He completed THIS lapbook and used some minibooks about cats that I found at Homeschool Share.
Activities included learning what the letter "C" sounds like and words that begin with "C." He practiced using scissors and counting cards with pictures of cats on them. He learned a little about cats and how to take care of a pet. We also talked about rules of the house, and personal safety and what to do if a stranger comes near you. I was surprised with the answers he gave me becuase he knew to call 911 in an emergency and to run away and not talk to a stranger. I can't remember ever talking to him about these things. It's amazing what kids learn without ever being taught. If you're wondering why we talked about personal safety it's because there were minibooks about this in the Cat in the Hat lapbook. But really it ties in with the story in that the cat is a stranger and the kids do not follow the rules of the house in the story.
Here are some of the books we used this week in addition to The Cat in the Hat:
