Each month I order a few books from the kids reading list from Mother Goose Time. This list goes with the theme for the month and includes a ton of great classics. The Mitten day the recommended The Mitten by Jan Brett a book I remember from my childhood. I knew the kids would have fun with this The Mitten Unit Study.
The Mitten Unit Study
Each day of Mother Goose Time is a mini Unit Study perfect for Preschoolers. Because we have older kids in the mix we add to each day bringing it up to Kindergarten and 3rd-grade levels for them. I love that this program can be added to create a curriculum that fits all of my children so they can enjoy learning together.
Animals in the mitten activity
Mother Goose Time created this great activity for the kids making mittens to stuff with Animals. They made it so easy for me by providing everything ready to go. The mittens were even hole punched. While I popped them out Monkey and Little Man cut the animals out. I did find a printable mitten activity on Pinterest you can use.
Explore with mittens
Mother Goose Time always includes a verity of fun ideas all ready to go for you. On mittens day in the Winter in the Woods theme, they suggest collecting an assortment of mittens and gloves. Challenge children to out them on while doing simple tasks, play with blocks and write their name. Discuss how the mittens made things different and what was easiest to use with the gloves on.
