The Mitten

Retold by Jan Brett

Mrs. Burn's Class

Arroyo Mocho Elementary School

Livermore, California

We read the book The Mitten by Jan Brett.   We used masks downloaded and printed from Jan Brett's website to act out the story.  Using a sheet, the characters squeezed under to role play the action of the story.  It was really fun!

The students created their own mitten designs on a left mitten.  When completed, they randomly picked a different mitten to copy.  They had to recreate the pattern on the right mitten, which took some thinking!

The  mittens were then stuffed with newspaper and attached together with a piece of thick, white yarn.  They were hung in the classroom for all to enjoy!
