Mitten Winter Thematic Unit
Hands-On Language Arts/Literacy and Math Activities
Get your students excited about winter with active learning! Included are ten lessons, five language arts and five math, that feature whole group activities and independent learning stations. Your students will be creating a Venn Diagram, acting out a story, authoring their own stories, creating organizational charts, graphing, estimating, matching pairs, measuring, counting, and sorting.
The unit focuses on three published books pertaining to mittens including “The Mitten” by Jan Brett, “The Mitten Tree” by Candace Christiansen and “The Runaway Mitten” by Jean Rodgers.
Each lesson plan defines goals, outlines materials needed, guides the instructor through the lesson, and defines simple ways to differentiate between high achieving students and emerging students. This educational and fun packet is a wonderful unit to use to chase away the winter blues!
Record keeping pages included are a mitten measuring worksheet, a dice rolling/graphing worksheet, printable dice template, printable animals from “The Mitten” by Jan Brett, a mitten graphing worksheet, a mitten numeration page, two different mitten outlines for making mitten books, mitten pattern pages, animal masks from “The Mitten” by Jan Brett, and stuffing a mitten worksheet. Each activity is saved as a Microsoft Word document and a pdf so you can easily print the item or modify it for your needs.
