Another fun retell for young kiddos goes with Jan Brett's story the mitten. I use this set together with the friends in my class. We use this whole class or in groups with an
Adult help. Below is a retelling that each child can make and use.
I got these great Iron on transfers from Jan Brett's website. You can print them from your computer printer onto transfer paper. They can be ironed onto fabric and stitched around to make small pillows for each animal. I made the mitten out of felt large enough to comfortably hold all of the animals. The
Mitten from Jan Brett's site can be enlarged to create this mitten. I sewed the seam to separate the thumb but did not cut down next to the thumb. (I think it adds stability to the whole mitten that way.)
For the individual retelling pieces the kids use independently, I used mittens cut from the Ellison. Two of these mittens are glued together with a white lunch bag between them.
The animals come from Jan Brett's site as well.
