The Mitten


Read to students The Mitten by Jan Brett. Create a large felt mitten by tracing and cutting out 2 large mitten shapes. Glue the shapes together around the edges, leaving the top open. Then encourage children to retell the story by placing precut animal picture cards into the large felt mitten in the correct story sequence.

You can find nice images of the characters in The Mitten on Jan Brett's Web site.
