The Mitten Retell

I have always enjoyed acting out the story, The Mitten
During the week we read, The Mitten, many times.  On Friday, 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!
We use the song pictured below to act out the story together.
 
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 all the fun happening below!  















Thanks for reading & STAY WARM!

  1. Great idea to use sheets to make a big mitten. I have a larger than a hand mitten that I made with a knitting loom that we stick little laminated animals in, but crawling in a sheet would definitely appeal to my students.
