Tag Archives: the mitten

For our last day in our mini unit on The Mitten we discussed the characters of the mitten and made a bar graph on our favorite animal from the story.  Then we made mitten mini booklets on our favorite animal.

We continued on our mini unit on the book The Mitten.  We made a text to self connection by writing about a time when we lost something.  Then we painted mittens with water color and sprinkled them with salt.  After the paint dried we brushed off the salt and it made the mittens look like they had snowflakes on them.

Last week we had our mini unit on The Mitten by Jan Brett, and we began with reading it whole group.  Then we created an anchor chart and discussed the elements of the story.

Next we completed a mitten sequence cut and paste activity; illustrating the order that the animals entered in the mitten.  Finally students retold the story by acting out the story using masks printed out from Jan Brett’s website.

As we move into our Winter & The Four Seasons unit in our K-1 All-Star class; we read a children’s classic known as The Mitten retold by Jan Brett.  The class retold the story by doing a reader’s theater and acting out as different characters of the story.  We used masks from Jan Brett’s website.

For writing we discussed the different characters we remember from the story.  Then we wrote about our favorite characters and something they did in the story.

We read Jan Brett’s The Mitten and discussed the characters of the story.  We also retold the story by remembering the correct sequence and we retold the story using a blanket and masks.  After the retell, students wrote about their favorite character.
