This is a great activity to use after reading the Ukranian folk tale. Inspired by the retelling by Jan Brett, students create a puppet show to retell and sequence the story. This can be used as a teacher demonstration tool or for students to create themselves.
Print out the animals and students cut (if able) and glue to a popsicle stick. Using the provided mitten clipart or purchase mittens for students to use from dollar stores, students then retell the story in sequential order with their "puppets" and mitten!
A coloring sheet is also provided for students to use after the puppet activity.
