Here are some activities that we did associated with the story The Mitten:
Arranged mittens of different sizes from smallest to biggest.
I made mitten cards with the numbers 1 - 9 on them in two different colors. The kids matched the same numbers and then put them in numerical order.
I cut out two large mittens and punched holes around the edges. The kids sewed the mittens together and put some cotton balls in the bottom to make them puffy. Then I gave all the kids a set of 8 cards with woodland creatures on them. The kids picked out which animals were in our story and then put them into their own mittens in the same sequence that the animals in the story did. It was a lesson to help them work on story recall and sequencing.
