Scat the Cat

Felt Board Magic - Scat the Cat Felt Set.


Scat the Cat is such a fun and interactive color story. It encourages children to think about colors in their environment.
Adapted for the felt board by Kate McKnight based on Dr Jean's original folder game. 
 
Once upon a time there was a little black cat named Scat.
(Put black cat on the flannel board)
 Felt Board Magic - Scat the Cat
His mother was black, his father was black and his brothers and sisters were all black. 
Scat the cat had a very special magical black bowler hat.
(Put hat on the flannel board)
 Felt Board Magic - Scat the Cat
When he put the magical hat on his head, he could change his color. 
 
One day, Scat the Cat was tired of being black so he put on his magical hat 
(put bowler hat on Scat’s head)
 and said
  "I'm Scat the Cat,
I’m Scat the Cat,
and with my magical bowler hat, 
I’m going to change color (Snap)
Just like that!"

And Scat the Cat changed himself into a red cat.
(Replace black cat with the red cat)
He was red as red can be.
 He was as red as the an apple and as red as a rose.
 
(Ask the children to think of other things that are the same color as the cat).
 
After a while, Scat was tired of being red, and so he put on his hat,
 
(put bowler hat on Scat’s head)
 
and said
  "I'm Scat the Cat,
I’m Scat the Cat,
and with my magical bowler hat, 
I’m going to change color (Snap)
Just like that!"
 
And Scat the Cat changed himself into a blue cat.
(Replace red cat with the blue cat)
And So On…..yellow cat, green cat, orange cat, purple cat.
 
 After a long and exciting day Scat decided that he didn’t want to be blue or red or yellow or green or orange or purple any more.
He was tired, he wanted to go home and sleep in a pile with his mother and father and brothers and sisters.

So Scat the Cat put on his magical bowler hat,
(put bowler hat on Scat’s head)
and said
  "I'm Scat the Cat,
I’m Scat the Cat,
and with my magical bowler hat, 
I’m going to change color (Snap)
Just like that!"
 
And Scat the Cat changed himself back into a black cat
            (Replace purple cat with the black cat).
just like his mother and his father and his brothers and sisters.
He went home and fell asleep.
All night long he dreamt about the fun he had had,
 being all the colors of the rainbow.
 
I wonder what color Scat will be tomorrow.
