After reading The Missing Mitten Mystery, each student decorated a mitten with various materials. When they were finished we talked about adjectives and different ways we could describe our mitten.
They wrote three sentences and used adjectives to describe their lost mitten. When they were finished with the writing I mixed the mittens up and put them on desks. I gave each student a paper, they had to read it and find the mitten that went with their description. We put them in the hall when we were finished for others to read.

We also read Missing Mittens, a MathStart book about odd and even numbers. The students had to match the numeral to the dot mitten and then put them under odd or even. These are pretty small numbers but it's a great introduction to odd and even numbers.
