Some kittens march to the beat of a different drummer.
Mama Cat has three kittens, Fluffy, Skinny, and Boris.
Where Mama Cat leads, Fluffy and Skinny follow. But
what about Boris-- will he ever stop napping and join the
Young children will love Mama Cat and her three kittens.
They'll also enjoy looking for three other creatures hidden
in every scene. But they'll have to count carefully -- Mama
Mouse has a surprise.
Cat Walk Obstacle Course
Cat walk obstacle course.  Remind the children that
cats are amazingly agile.  Set up some balance beams
and a few other challenging obstacles for the children
to try.  See how quietly they can walk across the beams.
 How quickly or slowly.  Can they pounce from one
beam to the next?  
Feline Library Center:
Set up a quiet and comfy reading area for
all your cat-nappers.  Fill it with lots of nice
books full of cat pictures, and play some cat
sound effects quietly in the background.
Cat Show:
Gather lots of stuffed felines and let the
children pretend to be in a cat show.  
Provide some plastic crates for "cages," some
brushes and bows to make the ribbons.
Explain that some cats really like to try to catch pet goldfish
from fishbowls.  Serve up some goldfish snacks in little clear
plastic bowls and have fun!
Music & Movement:

Play "Cat's Night Out" by Graham Walker, from his Cat's
Night Out CD.  (
Click here for a song sample.)  Let the
children act out the song, and crawl around like sleek,
prowling cats.
Morning Circle:

Show the children some big colorful photos of different types of cats.  You could include
wild felines as well as a variety of domestic breeds.  Ask the children if any of them has a pet
cat.  Talk about some of the characteristics of cats, both pet cats and wild cats such as tigers
and lions.  Discuss how even the biggest wild cat plays, naps, and licks their paws just like
our pet cats.   

Explain to the children that another word for cats is "felines."  "Feline" describes any animal
that belongs to the whole big cat family, whether lion, cheetah, lynx, Siamese, or tabby cat.  
Say "feline" with the children.  See whether the children can tell you the beginning sound in

Show the letter "F."    Say the "f" sound.  Say, "The furry felines frolic ferociously in the
field."  Ask the children to hold up a finger for each word beginning with "f" they hear.  See
if they can say the tongue twister with you.
"Mama Cat has Three Kittens"
y Denise Fleming
Invite children to tell silly stories
about their own pets.
Read: "Three Little Kittens" by Paul Galdone
You might like to use the recorded version for a nice
change of pace.  Discuss the story with the children.  
What were the kittens responsible for?  What does it
mean to have a responsibility?  What happened when
the kittens could not take care of their mittens?  What
happened when they did what they needed to do (keep
up with their mittens and keep them clean?)

responsibility for our bodies? (Get sick, toothaches, etc.)  How about our toys?  How
are we responsible for them?  Spend a little time discussing responsibility and
