 Integrating technology using literature:


  • Video of Pete the Cat on the computer or an iPad (download from Youtube and leave on desktop)
  • Open on http://harpercollinschildrens.com/feature/petethecat/ - listen to the book being read or watch the video of the book being read
  • Put the Pete the Cat app ($.99) on the iPad - children can play games with Pete the Cat
  • Using a digital camera, take a walk around your school, taking pictures to create your own Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes class book. Could also record your own children narrating and singing the book. 
  • Using your Livescribe Smartpen, record yourself (or from the MP3) reading Pete the Cat on a sound dot and let the children hear the book being read to them
