This lesson is designed for Direct Instruction Guided Reading, Small Groups and Differentiated Instruction for the picture book - The Mitten by Jan Brett. It is common core aligned. There are sensory and writing activities included. This is the lesson plan only. I did not include the journal or writing page I used. (I wrote on tablet paper with drawing space and made copies.) The mitten sequencing idea I downloaded from other TPT sellers and used one from a Mailbox magazine. The lesson plan does include: rubrics for skills assessed (retelling and writing), small group centers activities, differentiated and enrichment (across the curriculum) instruction ideas. It also has I can statements that are Kindergarten Friendly and measurement statement goals. This lesson plan follows the Tennessee TEAM model for evaluation. All areas are included from the TEAM model rubric. I included a pdf AND word format so that it is editable. Thanks!
