Eula, The Square Cat Came to Visit!

 Last week, we read the adorable story Square Cat by Elizabeth Schoonmaker. She sent my class an autographed copy and we were so excited when it arrived in the mail!

Eula is so cute! My class just loved her!

After we finished reading about her life as a square cat, we brainstormed some ideas of other animals that could be square. Then we drew a picture in our journals and wrote a story about our square animal.

Square Puppy

Square Bunny

Square Cat

Square Porcupine

Square Polar Bear

Square Lizard
{I just had to share the whole story, it cracked me up!}
"those were the good old days"...sigh! I'm gonna miss these kiddos!

Thanks for coming to our classroom and helping us learn Eula, we love you!

  3. Truly, a Square Cat delight! I now have many new square friends! A bunny, polar bear, puppy, lizard (a blue one at that!) and last but not least a square porcupine! Who knew?!

    Thank you! I am so happy you enjoyed my story.

    It is hip to be square!
