The Mitten

This week, NHCS StoryCrafters listened to Jan Brett's classic tale, The Mitten. This is another version of the Ukranian folktale read at Storytime a few weeks back. In this version, the child Nikki loses one of his new white mittens in the snow, and animals seek shelter in it. Guess which animal makes the mitten finally burst at the seams!

After a quick discussion about symmetry, students cut out and decorated oversized paper mittens, embellishing them with ribbons, yarns, and foam pieces. Can you see the symmetrical patterns in this pair?
