THE MITTEN


Kindergarten today.  Our last Jan Brett book - her adaptation of the Ukrainian folk tale The Mitten. 




Materials . . .
blue 9x12 construction paper
white tempera paint
'crayons'



We love Jan Brett's illustrations - her own version of the triptych.  In The Mitten, we looked for which animal was coming up next.  Of course the pictures are seen through the mitten shape!




Kindergarteners drew 'Y' trees, an animal from the story, and the mitten with the crayons then painted the ground and the trees with snow.  

Can you spot the mittens?




Don't you just love that porcupine?!
Stay warm - wear your mittens!
