This is a fun activity to try with your students after reading "The Mitten". I use child-size mittens (2 different sizes). Use the plastic counting bears - stick with only one size. It is surprising how many of those little bears will fit in a small mitten! Can be done as a large group or during math centres. (I have also retold the story using a large wool mitten and small stuffed animals.)The kids love it! I hope you enjoy this printable.
