  2. Print the mitten cut-out pages from and
  3. Print the animal cut-out page from
  4. Choose an animal for your class to describe to another class

Connect through videoconferencing with another class

  • 5 min - introduce yourselves
  • 5 min - share favorite part of the story
  • 20 min - "Guess the animal in the mitten" (each class describes one animal to the other group)
  • 10 min - show each other the mittens and ask questions if you have them

Here are some additional resources that you might want to check out!

*** If a class cannot participate after registering, please let me know as soon as possible so I can make other arrangements for another class to participate.***

Let me know if you have any questions!
