Cat literacy activities

Why not combine this activity with some reading and writing:
  • brainstorm a list of cool cat names for a story
  • write a list of cat sounds to make a story about a cat more engaging and descriptive
  • make a list of things a pet cat needs
  • draw a home for a pet cat or create it from paper scraps
  • ask students to tell you words that rhyme with cat
  • with kindergarten, model how to write a sentence about a cat and ask students to attempt some writing too
  • first and second grade could write a paragraph or short story about a cat's nightly adventures
  • read Mrs Brown and the Midnight Cat, one of our faves
  • role play going to the pet store to buy a cat - have students practice structuring questions to enquire about the suitability of a particular cat (language activity)
  • together as a class, research 5 fun facts about cats and record them on paw prints to display with the crafts
