LITERACY STORY INFORMATION
A children story written by Jan Brett is about a young boy named Nicki. Nicki begs his grandmother, Baba, to knit him a pair of white mittens. In spite of her warnings that he will lose them and that they will be hard to find in the snow, he insists and she finally does so.
Grandmothers noticed that he has dropped a mitten. A mole is the first to discover the mitten lying on the snow and crawls inside, followed by a snowshoe rabbit, a hedgehog, an owl, a mole, a fox, a bear, and finally, a mouse until the bear sneezes, and everyone scatters.
THE MITTEN GROUP ACTIVITY
For this story, we will create a mitten on the floor with blue masking tape. Each child is given one card from the story, and when their animal was called, they stepped into the mitten. At the end, when the bear sneezes, we all sneezed and jumped out of the mitten.
