The story of The Mitten is read in most of the early childhood years and children enjoy it. I developed this unit in Spanish because I could find activities in English and I had to do extra work to translate. I put together this unit that covers Math and Language Arts.
In Language Arts the cards can be used in circle time and then place them in a center so students can match the words with magnetic letters. There is also independence practice and a graph game that students enjoy playing and at the same time they familiarize with the name of the animals. It is very rare to find some of these animals in Texas! Math includes ordinal numbers, sequence, puzzles where students learn to order numbers fast, and estimation.
