Today is just a short post. As we transition from fall to winter, I love to touch on "The Mitten" by Jan Brett. There are lots of great activities online that I am going to go ahead and link to below (many are by Ms. Brett herself!). I am a major Jan Brett fan and I am not going to lie that I own not one, but two copies of the Mitten. I also like to follow the story up with "The Hat." Below is a copy of my language at home that I like to send with the kids after a session. I love to have the kids make predictions about the story. We also act out the different action words for each of the animals in the book.
