Cat Puns and Fall Fun! Meow We’re Talkin’

This might be another weird school year. We thought you could use some cat pictures, great programs, and free resources to start off on the right paw!

Meow’s the time of year where we welcome students back to the catroom. As we dig our claws into the new school year, we’re still facing a lot of uncertainty. But you educators are paw-some…like tuna and cat nip. You’ve brought so much creativity and resilience into the catroom and Zoom room and Google Classroom. You are the sunbeam that warms the sleepy kitties of our souls. Let STEM Read help you make this year purr-fect wherever your students are learning.

  • Book a field trip or a virtual book exploration. Some of our favorite STEAM-based, standards-aligned trips are inspired by Holes by Louis Sachar, I Survived by Lauren Tarshis, The Wild Robot by Peter Brown, and The Detective’s Assistant by Kate Hannigan.
