1st Grade students listened to the book The Mitten by Jan Brett, who is author of the month for December. The story is about a white mitten that gets lost in the snow and when several woodland animals find warmth in the mitten, it stretches to many times its size. Students colored and cut their own mitten as well as woodland animals to be able to retell the story to their classmates. We had a great time, and found that retelling a story is harder than it may seem! Check out the pictures and short clip of Sarah retelling her version of The Mitten.
