1-2-3 Come Do A Mitten Craftivity With Me
Run off the mitten pattern on a variety of colors of construction paper. Students choose one, cut it out and color the snowflake. For that finishing touch, glue a school photo to the center of the snowflake.
Each child also needs a copy of the booklet pages. They are on one sheet for easy printing. As a whole group, read the sentences aloud. Pause, while students fill in the blanks, complete the writing prompt and add end punctuation.
I also wrote the color of my mittens, using a marker that color. Have students write the number, as well as the number word in the blank, for how many pairs of mittens they own.
Children cut, collate and then staple their booklet to the cuff of their mitten, and write their name on the cover.
When everyone is done, have children share their mitten booklets.
I've included a graphing extension for colors of mittens, with a tally time worksheet.
Another graph shows whether they prefer gloves or mittens.
There are also a few mitten math extensions. Do the worksheets as a whole group, or break children up into small groups to figure them out.
To help explain what you want students to do, the packet includes a completed sample that you can share with them, or, if you have the time, make a sample of your own.
Completed projects make an adorable winter bulletin board. Scatter the mittens on a background of blue. Use snowflake wrapping paper for extra pizzazz.
For that finishing touch, edge with a border of paper snowflakes that your kiddos cut out. White doilies cut in half are also lovely.

I spent an hour on Pinterest last night, so my brain is brimming with ideas, and my desk is cluttered with notes and sketches.
If you'd like to see the boards I take way too much time on, click the link to zip on over. I have one specifically for mittens! Almost all of what I pin are educational FREEBIES, crafts, games and just plain fun timesavers. I did lots of work, so you don't have to.
Playing on Pinterest gets me excited for all of the up-coming celebrations, and like everyone else, I have way more things to get done, than I do the time to make them all in. Wishing you a productive and carefree day.
