THE MITTEN

The Mitten book study winter literacy unit with Common Core aligned companion activities and a craftivity for K-1
Students can relate to Nicki losing a mitten in the snow...but Jan Brett makes the story fun by having several forest animals burrow inside of the mitten to stay warm. From a tiny field mouse to a large bear, they all squeeze in! A cute story with a fun ending, The Mitten is a great book to teach about sequencing events and characters in the story.
