The Mitten is The Mitten or is It?

| 0 comments

As part of our science and math learning during this snowy month of January we compared 2 versions of the folktale – The Mitten (original inspiration: Golden Gang Kindergarten). We then made a Venn Diagram of these 2 books: The Mitten by Alvin Tresselt  and the one we already knew by Jan Brett  ~ The children discussed their observations about what was the same and different between these 2 stories. I wrote their observations onto our large white board, placing into the correct sections, as guided by the kids.  

During rest-time, I used Wylio.com to find creative commons photos of the characters in each version to make a visual version of our Venn Diagram for The Mitten.

You may notice a part of the Venn Diagram is missing – I left that out for the children to draw in themselves as part of understanding how a Venn Diagram works.
