This resource includes several awesome activities that would be perfect for your K-1 classroom anytime during Winter or when you read The Mitten by Jan Brett.
Inside you’ll discover detailed, helpful instructions and print-and-go pages so your class can have so much fun retelling The Mitten ... and so much more:
✅ RETELLING: Props for retelling the story, BOTH individually and whole group (big mitten to glue on a lunch sack, page of animals to color- labeled with the animal name and # they entered the mitten, optional song to display and sing while retelling, big colorful animal cards and instructions for many ways the story could be retold whole group)
✅ WHOLE GROUP GAMES: Directions for two VERY FUN, zero-prep games kids love. Everyone works together and there’s not just one winner/loser so it’s “friendly and safe” for kids/classes who may struggle with those concepts.
