Well I promised this a long time ago and then time got away from me. Here is the pattern to make your own Pete the Cat and His 4 Groovy Buttons. This is the first time I've used Google Drive so hopefully this will work.
So my wonderful class of 16 has now grown to 19 since they decided to cut a Kindergarten unit. Unfortunately, that put us all over by 1 student (we're capped at 18). So now we have to make a K/1 split which meant pulling the higher K students. So in a nutshell I gained 3 low students and am now losing 2 high students. I'm not sure I like this trade but I will make the most of it. My kids have a real drive to learn and are starting to make all those important connections. I am amazed by how much they have gained in such a short time. As Pete would say, "It's all good."
