The Mitten

We have been reading The Mitten by Jan Brett
We read the story, sequenced the characters and watched these online...

We did a Readers Theater of the story...

{You know your kids love readers theater when they start saying 
"I want to be the owl." while you are reading the book:)}

We read and compared these different version of The Mitten 
and wrote about our favorite ending in our Reading and Writing Notebooks.

We made a self to text connection to the story...

Ella was inspired to write her own version 
of The Mitten during free choice...
then she inspired Margot, Duke and Brennan to write books.
