This is a set of resources I created for use in my own classroom as I teach four of my favorite books by Jan Brett: The Mitten, The Hat, Hedgie's Surprise, and Armadillo Rodeo. Here's what's included:
Author info on Jan Brett: a passage, questions, flip book, web, and writing papers
Activities for The Mitten: story map, retelling pieces, mittens can/have/are chart, Missing Mitten writing craftivity, and an emergent reader called Animals in the Woods that features some of the animals from the story
Activities for The Hat: story map, retelling pieces, book response paper and hat craft, Venn diagram graphic organizer for comparing The Mitten with The Hat, and an emergent reader called Clothes for Winter
Activities for Hedgie's Surprise: story map, somebody/wanted/but/so flap book, character webs, retelling pieces, Reader's Theater script, hedgehog craft
Activities for Armadillo Rodeo: story map, character webs, retelling pieces, armadillo craft
Plus, a story elements flap book that can be used with any Jan Brett text as well as a chart for comparing characters and settings across multiple books!
