Baby, it's Cold Outside...Great Time to read...The Mitten

What have we been doing this week!?!  Anything and everything that is related to the story, The Mitten.  Here are some quick pictures to share!    

I got this idea from website or should I say...Kindergals.....a couple of years ago.  My students love to read the story over and over during their academic free choice time!  

When I was in college this was one of the activities I made for our Reading Class.  I still use it every year and the students ask me all week....Can we retell the story again?!

Listening to the story while waiting to go into the mitten.

All the animals inside the mitten!  (Sorry picture is upside down)

The bear sneezes and all the animals come out of the mitten!

We read the emergent reader, The Tale of The Mitten, by BZ Teacher together as a class.  If you would like a copy of the book click {here now} !  It is so cute, and she has 3 different versions for you to use in your classroom!

 Here is a fun unit by Adventures in First with Mrs. Key that I used this week.  Check it out by clicking {here}
 I also used this write the room activity with my kiddos.  They had so much fun finding the characters in the story.  Click {right here} to check out Over The MoonBow Activity Pack.
Today was my student teachers last day in our classroom.  She will be missed!  Here is the little goodie bag she gave each student.  On the back it said..."Owl" Miss You!

  4. I just did a close read with this book and the kids loved using the retelling cards i made for the pocket chart. This looks fabulous- no surprise!
    Love the way you think!

  5. I like internet browsing very much in my spare time. I love to read articles, news, events, magazines and some books also. I like to read horror stories and 2 days ago when I was looking for some story, I went through one Site , and found many interesting and some funny things in that article. That’s why I thought to share this with you all and the above article is also very interesting. I would definitely refer it to my friends. Thanks for sharing above article with us.
