Matching Mittens

Second graders from Wisconsin recreate mittens of second graders from Massachusetts based on descriptions alone!
Inspired by Jan Brett's The Mitten, Ms. Jacoby's second graders
in Massachusetts created their own mittens, then described them
for Mrs. Nash's class in Wisconsin so they could be redrawn.
Could you do it? Click on each pair of mittens for the description.
Mrs. Nash and I agree our second graders are certainly amazing!
We hope you think so, too!

Special Thanks
to Judy Britt and MaryBeth Wall who assisted with this project in Writers' and Math Workshops,
and to Cheryl Bernardo and her husband Mike for scanning these pictures.
