Mitten Centers & a Giveaway!

First, go check out the FAB giveaway at Mrs. Bearden's Class...if you're the winner you will receive my new Playful Penguin Unit and Jamie Mayas' Patriotic Pack..head on over and leave your entries on HER BLOG.  Giveaway ends Sunday night!  

Our theme this week focused around the book The Mitten by Jan Brett.  So do our centers.  Here are some of our centers for the week.  You can find all of these in my Mitten Unit Here.  I have been really bad about taking "action shots" this year during centers, but hopefully you get an idea of what's going on in our classroom.  

A new spin on patterning...using a code

I goofed on this sheet...I will get this fixed...sorry friends! (if you bought the mitten unit)

Have you ever read Move Over Rover by Karen Beaumont?  It's the cutest little story about animals who want to squeeze in the dog's house to stay dry until along comes a skunk...you can probably guess what happens...

We retold The Mitten using our story props and story strip...and this cute little "paper bag mitten" that houses our props...you can find this in my mitten unit too!  :)

this was a fun twist on sight words...challenging

adorable symmetrical mittens...this was a partner activity...their design had to be symmetrical and they had to discuss their design together.
