The Mitten Tree

I read The Mitten Tree by Candace Christiansen to my first graders. Our class was doing a study on poetry. We discussed that some poems rhyme and others describe things. We wrote some poems about mittens and typed them using Microsoft Word. In the computer lab each child drew and decorated his/her mitten using Paint. We then used the mittens to decorate our poems. We had a great time learning about mittens, poetry, and technology all in one study!
