The Mitten

STORYTIME
I read The Mitten by Jan Brett.

Use masking tape on the floor to make a mitten shape.
As I read the story a child got into the mitten.
At the end of the book, the kids all pretended to sneeze and roll out of the circle.
 GAMES
Sequencing: Use the animal and mitten printables to sequence the story with your child. I found patterns at A Teacher without a ClassThe Mitten Patterns and Animals Color the animals first and then cut them out. Can you remember what order the animals went into the mitten?

 Hat and Mitten Game: (matching shapes) Found at ChildCareLand

Toss the Mitten:  Stuff a few pairs of socks into all those mittens around your house {if your house is anything like mine there are lonely little mittens all over the place!}. Pull out a laundry basket and play a game of ‘Toss the Mitten’ with your tot and see how many mittens you can get into the basket.


SONGS
The Mitten  
Tune: The Farmer in the Dell
The mitten on the ground,  
The mitten on the ground,  
Heigh-ho! It's cold outside,  
The mitten on the ground.  
The {mole} snuggles in,  
The {mole} snuggles in,  
Heigh-ho! It's cold outside,  
The {mole} snuggles in.
{Continue singing filling in the names of the other animals in the book}
