The Mitten, by Jan Brett is a Ukrainian folktale, and one of my favorite winter books.

It's perfect for practicing sequencing and a variety of other standards.

With that in mind, I designed The Mitten Literacy Packet, with quick, easy and fun "print & go" activities, games, and even a mitten craft.

Teacher Comments:

  • A fun time was had by all using the well thought out materials which are easy for the children to use. We learned so much!”
