We did some mitten activities today.
Everyone got their mittens or gloves from their locker.
- We sorted them into groups -- gloves vs. mittens vs. bare hands. We did a tally chart to keep track of each group. We had more mittens than gloves in our classroom. (And one person came to school with bare hands.)
- One game was called "Guess My Rule". We had to guess why some mittens were chosen to go in the hoola hoop and some were not.
- We read the books "The Mitten" by Alvin Tresselt and "The Missing Mitten Mystery" by Steven Kellogg. (Yesterday we read "The Mitten" by Jan Brett.)
- We did some mitten activities on the Smart Board.
