Alexa Maring's Reviews > The Mitten
Cause and effect is one of many lessons that can be taught through this book! As a large group perform this book by bringing in a large sheet to act as the mitten. As the students act out the animals they will feel more involved in the story line and remember this activity and book! Jan Brett has many more books that would make a great author's as mentors study! The first grade clas across from me used her as their mentor and the work they produced was creative and beautiful! Additionally, this book offers an introduction to a discussion about different cultures. This is a Ukranian tale, which can lead to students researching other Ukranian stories and experiencing literature from around the world.
