1-2-3 Come Do Some Mitten Activities With Me
We are smitten with The Mitten, by Jan Brett. It's a Ukrainian folktale, and one of my kiddos' favorite winter books, that's perfect for practicing sequencing and a variety of other standards.
With that in mind, I designed The Mitten Literacy Packet, with quick, easy and fun "print & go" activities, games, and even a mitten craft.
The packet includes:
* A world map worksheet, where children locate the Ukraine as well as their own country and color it.
* A label the cover worksheet, with completed sample.
* Characters, setting and events, pocket chart cards.
* Story elements, plus beginning-Middle-and End parts of the story, worksheets.
* Worksheets for sequencing the animals.
* Several writing prompt worksheets, for summarizing the story and explaining your favorite part.
* Who-What-Why-When-Where-How? worksheet.
* Several games, including a set of Memory Match cards that you can play 3 additional games with.
* 5 Venn diagram worksheets, which are a fun way to practice comparison & contrast.
* A graphing extension.
* 21, pocket chart, sentence cards, which help review the story, as well as practice capitalization and end punctuation.
* There's a matching set of mini cards, to use for several other activities.
* 9, "We read The Mitten today. Ask me to tell you the story." bookmarks.
* "Mm is for mitten and . . ." beginning letter sound worksheet.
* Rhyme time worksheet, with matching answer-key poster.
* "How Many Words Can You Make?" worksheet with an answer-key poster.
* Keepsake hand print mitten craft, plus . . .
* 3 mitten-themed graphic organizer worksheets.
Whew! That covers a nice variety of stuff doesn't it?
