We read a classic piece of children's literature today,
The Mitten by Jan Brett.

We then did a character study of all the animals in the story. After discussing a little about the animals each child was asked to identify their favorite animal from the story and draw a picture. 

We then put a mitten and the animals from the story into our sensory table! The children love acting out the story and comparing the size of the mittens after stretching one out with the animals! : )

I made a mitten shape matching game out of felt for the children to play. They love the soft feel of the mittens!

I added a mitten line into the dramatic play area where the children can arrange the numbers into the correct order. They can also match the mittens to the correct number of dots on a matching mitten if they choose.
