THE MITTEN ACTIVITIES

Last week we read The Mitten by Jan Brett. It's a student favorite! It's my top winter read aloud, and we do lots of literacy activities based on this book.

In the story, Hedgie the hedgehog finds a mitten in the snow. Since he's cold from the wintery weather, he climbs inside to get warm and toasty.

When other forest animals notice what Hedgie has done, they decide to head inside the mitten to warm up too!
