1-2-3 Come Do Some Mitten Craftivities With Me!
I did a month-long mitten theme in January with my Y5's. They enjoyed all sorts of mitten matching games and activities, so I wanted to share the newest FREEBIES as well as some old favorites today.
If you teach the "magic e" spelling rule, I think you'll enjoy the Magic e Mitten packet. It took lots of hours to complete, but I think it was time well spent. Run the mitten patterns off on a variety of colors of construction paper.
I wanted mine to have a red mitten with a green cuff + a green mitten with a red cuff, so I ran off two of each page (one on red and one on green).
Laminate, trim and then cut the cuffs off so that you create puzzles for a Magic e Mitten Matching Game.
The 29-page packet includes a My Magic e Words (dictionary). Students trace the word, add a magic e to the end (use a different color) and then write the new word that is made.
Encourage students to look up words that they don't know and define them on their new-word definition page.
There are also Mitten Math worksheets, where the word + an e ='s a new word, as well as an alphabetical list of 86 magic e words, + a pattern to make a magic e snowflake-mitten wand.
I added glitter to mine and glued it to a Popsicle stick. Give students a word from the list, have them come up and write it on the board.
Everyone waves their magic e wand, and the child adds an e to the end, creating a new word "magically!" Click on the link to view/download the Magic e Mitten packet.
Do you do nursery rhymes? If so, Three Little Kittens is perfect for your mitten-themed day.
Students cut and glue the matching numbered kittens as well as the appropriate pair of mittens to the correct page.
Children read, trace, and write the simple sentences, reviewing number words.
This packet reviews pairs, as well as skip counting by 3's. I've also included 4 worksheets, a maze + a certificate of praise. Click on the link to view/download The Three Little Mittens.
Finally, the collection of 10-frame Count With Me Booklets would not be complete without one featuring mittens.
Practice a variety of skills and standards with this cute 10 frame booklet. Students read, trace and write the number and number word. Children see the numbered-mitten word in the sentence and say it. They spy the number in a sequence and circle it.
Kiddo's X-out that many boxes in the ten-frame or use a bingo dot marker, stickers or stamp. Finally, students cut and glue the set/group to the matching numbered box. Includes a variety of worksheets as well. These counting booklets are great for your Daily 5 activities.
