We love stories by Jan Brett and we love her peek a book pictures! After reading several different versions of The Mitten we compared and contrasted each of the stories. We then added in Jan Brett’s The Hat and compared it with her story The Mitten. We did a chart to show how the stories were alike and different. Here is a look at what we came up with.
All of our centers were mitten themed also…I didn’t get pictures…trying to play catch up from our snow days and I forgot! We had some fun centers this week too. The kids really liked them. We had a Chilly Phonics Challenge where they built real and nonsense words. They played Mitten Bingo where they created number sentences using a + and – die. They worked on place value mitten match. They did a sentence scramble using sentences about the story The Mitten where they had to make a complete sentence and write them with correct mechanics. They listened to the story The Mitten at our listening center and then sequenced the story events. They put winter words in ABC order and put them in a mitten shape in order. Overall a great week at centers. They always work hard!
