Who is it for?
- Math learners
- 1st Graders (6 to 7-year-olds)
- Beginning readers
- Kindergarteners (5 to 6-year-olds)
- This emergent reader, “Mittens” is connected to several CCGPS listed below. This pack includes three “Mittens” books. Each book has 22 pages and each book is designed so that you can copy the book, cut it in half, staple, and then it is ready for use.
- The first 22 page book includes a title page “Mittens,” and then each of the remaining 21 pages contains black and white pictures at the top of each page and a sentence under the picture.
Each sentence says “I see (number words zero-twenty) mittens.”
The PREVIEW shows every page included.
The second 22 page book includes a title page “Mittens,” and then each of the remaining 21 pages contains a blank ten frame at the top of each page and a sentence under the ten frames. This book is interactive with students being required to fill in the ten frames to match the number in the sentence. Pages are not numbered so that the teacher has flexibility to either staple the pages in number order 0-20 or to mix them up to check to see if students correctly recognize the number words. Students can either draw dots or color in the ten frames to show the correct number or use the included mitten manipulatives to cut and paste the correct number of mittens onto the ten frames. Two pages of mitten manipulatives are included for you to copy as needed for the book. One page of mitten manipulatives is for zero-ten and the other page is for eleven-twenty.
The third 22 page book is a color copy of the first book mentioned above. This color copy can be run on cardstock and laminated for the teacher to use for a model emergent reader or to put in a reading center or book bags for students to read over and over.
Look at the preview to see every page included.
Students can benefit from this reader by tracking print, identifying spaces between words, identifying particular letters of the alphabet, recognizing sounds (beginning, middle, and ending) in each word, and reading sight words and grade level text. For extension activities, students could add another sentence to each page to add details. The black and white pictures allow students the opportunity to color the pictures. This reader is great for guided reading groups, homework, or literacy center activities. It also includes math standards with a ten frame on each page with a matching number of mittens.

About the Seller
I am a kindergarten teacher with 22 years of teaching experience! I received my Doctor of Education degree in Teacher Leadership from Walden University in June 2010. The title of my doctoral study is "Writing Conferences in Kindergarten: Using Feedback to Enhance Student Writing." My passion is teaching writing to my students and providing feedback for their writing experiences. I love teaching kindergarten. It is amazing to see students enter the classroom not even knowing how to hold a pencil and watching them become readers and writers by the end of the year. I love teaching in small groups and rotating student groups with literacy centers and math centers.
