Kindergarten Mitttons

 This week with  fresh snow falling it seemed like a great time to read The Mitton.  Students always love this story.  All the animals cozy and snug in a white mitton on a cold snowy night till a sneeze returns the mitton to it's owner and send the animals flying through the air.  When we were don reading the story I asked students to trace aroun their hand to create mittons on their papers.

Then we discussed patterns (specifically repeating AB patterns.) Students could then decorate their mittons with thier own patterns and designs.  Those who got done early added snowy backgrounds adn the animals from the story to help decoate their work.
