Love the story THE MITTEN by Jan Brett? Need a fun way to practice? This retelling printable is made to be glued to a small paper sack lunch bag.

You are receiving two versions (a colored sheet plus a black/white sheet):

1 sheet of 8 characters plus a mitten. (blk/white: student)

1 sheet of 8 characters plus a mitten. (colored: teacher)

Print, cut and color. Add the mitten to a brown lunch sack and it is ready for retelling! There is a sheet of "labels" as well, add those to the lunch sack so that parents will prompt their child to practice the retelling at home.

*Use the colored version for teacher modeling ...and/or add to the classroom Retelling Center.

If you happen to be doing a "Mitten" Unit check my TPT store for a mitten reader, mitten math dice game, mitten (writing) guessing game, and more snow/winter themed fun!

Thanks for stopping by....
