At the beginning of the lesson plan it has a section that is titled "invitation to learn" however it does not fully activate the students background knowledge. Is it possible to ask more questions about what the students know regarding cats before beginning the story?

I enjoyed this lesson and would use it in my own classroom. I think if the story "7 Fat Cats" was made into a youtube video it would be more effective. This way the students would not have to listen to thier teacher read, but could listen to someone else read. I had to go to my local library to find the book "7 Fat Cats". It would be nice if the book was available online somewhere, but obviously that is up to the author. Great job!
