Packet includes 3 mitten Venn diagrams including 1 where students compare and contrast 2 animal characters from the story The Mitten.
Run the mitten pattern 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.
Students choose either a mitten or snowman pattern; trace it onto a wordy section of the newspaper, and trim. Children guess-timate how many S's or Mm's they will find and write that information on the matching recording sheet. Students circle the letters and count them as they go and then fill in the rest of their recording sheet.
Run off the mitten template on a variety of colors of construction paper. Children choose one; teacher paints their hand white and presses it to the center of the mitten. Pulled cotton, glued on the cuff, adds the finishing touch. You could also write students' names in glitter. These make a vibrant bulletin board or winter boarder.
