Mitten Story Slider Craft For Jan Brett's The Mitten

Mitten Story Slider Craft For Jan Brett's The Mitten
Product Description
Do you read the Ukrainian folktale The Mitten, by Jan Brett?

It’s one of my favorite winter stories and perfect for practicing the sequencing and retelling a story standards.

With that in mind, I designed this quick, easy and fun, mitten “slider” craftivity, that will help your students retell the story in the proper order.

Simply run the mitten and slider patterns off on white paper.
Using construction paper or card stock adds to the sturdiness.

Children trim their mitten, then color, cut and glue their slider together.

I pre-cut the mitten slits using an Exacto knife, so that children can easily insert their “storytelling strip”.

As they pull on the end of the “slider” the various pictures go through the mitten “window”, so that children can take turns retelling the story to a partner, then take their mitten home to share with their family, once again practicing the lesson.

I introduce the lesson by reading the story, then share my sample with the children.

We retell the tale together, using the picture prompts on the slider.

My students now know what’s expected of them, and are excited to transition to making a “mitten story slider” of their own.

I’ve included a full-color pattern for you, as well as a black and white template for students.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping this little mitten craft, will make practicing literacy standards more fun.

If there's a story you'd like to have a slider for, I do take requests. Simply leave a note in the "Ask a Question" section, or e-mail me at dianetpt@gmail.com
