The Mitten

Do you feel a little down?  Maybe a little blue?  Or just a tad depressed after the holiday hustle and bustle?  Well...I have just the thing to cheer you up! More ideas! I have wanted to revamp my winter unit for quite some time now.  I found Jan Brett's website and I just loooooooove it.  I printed, cut, laminated and attached a popsicle stick to the animal masks from "The Mitten" and my class and I are going to retell the story by using the masks and acting out each of the part.  I am going to use a white sheet as the mitten and my students will have to crawl in it as we retell. 

 Then, we have a little creative writing activity where the students have to think of a different animal to crawl into the mitten and tell why.  The mitten is made with scrapbook paper and cotton balls.  Underneath there is a surprise!!!!  Here is my example...
