The Mitten

RETELLING PROPS

MITTEN PAPER BAG

We colored and cut out a mitten and the animals. Then we glued the mitten to a white lunch sack - added some cotton to the bottom and we have ourselves a great storytelling prop.


STORYBOARD

Sequencing the story. I made a story board showing the animals already in the mitten with a space for the one entering. I put the animals on my flannel board and the children can place the appropriate animal in the corresponding mitten to complete the story board.


BRING A BLANKET

After reading The Mitten by Jan Brett we reenacted the story using a quilt my mother-in-law made. The children pretend to be the animals in the story and then crawl into the "mitten". The best part is when we sneeze and pull the blanket off!


MITTEN

It took me a while to collect all the animals in the book but I am glad to have them all. I don't remember where I bought the large mitten.

MATH

BIG SNEEZE

We played a file folder game called the "Big Sneeze". Again best part is after stacking the correct number of unifix cubes on each mitten the child sneezes and blows them all down.


GRAPHING

We graphed whether we liked gloves or mittens best.

 

FINE MOTOR


I drew a large mitten shape on cross stitch plastic canvas. I then thread a long string of yarn thru a large plastic quilting/embroidery needle and let the children sew.
