It's that time of year again! THE MITTEN! I do this activity with my students every year and they love it so much! I found Jan Brett's website and I just loooooooove it. I printed, cut, laminated and attached a popsicle stick to the animal masks from "The Mitten" and my class and I are going to retell the story by using the masks and acting out each of the part. I am going to use a white sheet as the mitten and my students will have to crawl in it as we retell.
Then, we have a little creative writing activity where the students have to think of a different animal to crawl into the mitten and tell why. The mitten is made with scrapbook paper and cotton balls. Underneath there is a surprise!!!!
|I only had my students glue the bottom of the mitten.|
I just made a bunch of mittens from cardstock and the kids used them to trace their mitten.
