We read The Mitten by Jan Brett. The students LOVED this story! Everyday they asked me to read it several times. We illustrated and wrote about an animal from the story on a mitten.
We sequenced the animals from the story on a mitten and then labeled the pictures with the animal name and ordinal number for the order they went into the mitten.
We read The Missing Mitten Mystery and created mittens. Then we labeled them by counting by twos. We used our mitten to practice skip counting by 2s. The students also created story maps for The Missing Mitten Mystery in their reader's notebooks.
