I have always enjoyed acting out the story, The Mitten. The students really get into the story by acting like the animal and squeezing into the mitten. Yes....all my students that have a headband can fit in the mitten at once! The students need to take off their shoes before they can crawl in and listen to the story quietly. They sure like to giggle in there...but isn't that what makes learning fun! I made the mitten out of 2 white sheets and sewed them together. I used headbands make each animal. See pictures below!
