Smitten With Mittens

Hello Everyone!
My wish for you is that you enjoy some joy and peace this holiday season.  My wish is that you also enjoy this new unit, Smitten With Mittens.  I love to take one piece of literature and center my entire learning environment around it!  After our New Years unit when we get back from break, I thought it would be great to use "The Mitten" by Jan Brett, another of my favorite author/illustrators.  I know kids love her books as well.  I am using this literature to help with retelling, drawing conclusions, interpretations, adding and subtracting, problem solving, and even some quick little science activities.
Here are some pics of a few of the 50 page unit.

As always, thank you for your support with my attempts at blogging.  You all are the best!!
 Have a wonderfilled week!!
