Reading / Language Arts
Read The Mitten by Jan Brett and talk about the book. Ask questions like: Which season is it in the story? How do you know it is winter? Why doesn't Nicki's grandmother want to make him white mittens? Why do you think the animals want to be inside his mitten? Where would the animals usually be during the winter? Which animals go inside the mitten? How does the mitten change throughout the story? Do you think this story could really have happened?

Activity: Let children put the animals (crawl in) in the mitten as you re-read or retell the story.

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.
(After the last animal, all pretend to sneeze and fall out of the mitten.)

Mittens for the snow time
When the world is white.
Mittens for my two hands.
Mittens left and right.

Mittens with a thumb place.
Mittens warm and snug.
Mittens make me feel like
A bug inside a rug!
