The Mitten

The Kindergarten students started out the week listening to The Mitten, which is a Ukrainian folktale.  
We studied the location and climate of the Ukraine, as well as the patterns and designs used in the creation of actual Ukrainian mittens.  Each student was given a construction paper mitten to create their own design.  Their prior study of line type and shape really came together for this project!  I was amazed by their integrate designs and the detail that the students were able to achieve!  These are on display in the school auditorium.
