Mittens, Cold Animals, and No Snow!

It's official- we love books about lost mittens and random animals who couldn't possibly fit into the mittens but crawl into them anyway!!  We like to read about them, talk about them, compare the stories on charts and write about them.  

 Students read the first mitten book and discussed the animals involved in the  squeezing into the mitten.  The other mitten book was a read aloud to partner with their individual books.  

After comparing the two stories, the students got to write about how the books were alike.  

Stories about snow have been the only snow we have gotten this winter so far- boo to that.  But we have a chance of snow today!!  It was warm and humid yesterday with temperatures around 70 degrees.  And now maybe we will get some white stuff!  Our weather is crazy, but I think the kids will love seeing the snow if we get lucky today.  :)


  1. Lori,
    If you do get some snow will you send so cold weather my way. Here in Florida we're still walking around in tank tops and flip flops due to the 80 degree weather. We could definitely use some cool weather and mitten action down here.

  5. Your kids don't just learn the mechanics of how to read. They learn how to think and they learn how to love books. They are lucky. (If I can't get myself a snow day, you might as well get one!)
