Ideas for The Mitten


I don't know about you, but I am head over heels for Jan Brett, and The Mitten is one of my very favorite of all of her amazing books.  I have been scouring blogs and pinterest to find some more ideas to make my Mitten unit even more fun.  

Here are some of my best finds: 

Cara Carroll's adorable story elements graphic organizer.  Easy, cute and the kids will love it!

Awesome video interview with Jan Brett herself!  She gives a mini tour of her house and shows all of the animals that make their way into her books!  She even bakes gingerbread men and shows how she shaped them in order to draw the characters in Gingerbread Baby.  LOVE!

You should have started that you are "smitten with the mitten". Sorry, I couldn't resist.
