Pete the Cat Rockin' the iPad

There are times I find things online and have no CLUE how I stumbled upon them....and late last night....when I should've been sleeping, I found the PETE THE CAT APP.....Wait until my students see this on Monday!! At the beginning of May, we got the newest book Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons and now we'll have the Pete the Cat App for our classroom iPads! Right now it's only .99 cents at the iTunes store. It will work on  both the iPad and iPhone!
 In the App, Pete is searching for his guitar. The player has to help Pete search the bus stop, classroom, lunch room  and playground to find his guitar. Once it's found, Pete invites the user to "rock out" with him. At first I thought the game was a little tough to find all the items....I wondered if my kids would be able to find them all.....but then I got my reading glasses!! LOL! Now that I have actually SEEN the game, I am sure they can handle it! ;-)
iTunes also has Pete the Cat books available for download as well. Click on the image below to learn more about the App and to download it for the Pete the Cat fans in your life! ;-)

Get the book here!

We are getting iPADs for our ESOL classes. I know nothing about iPADs, but the APPS here, especially "Doodle Buddy" sounds like something I could use with my students. I think "Pete the Cat" could be used to teach school vocabulary, which is one of the first lessons for English Language Learners (ELLs).
