The Mitten Freebie and a Chance to Win $100 to Target!

One of my very favorite books for January, for Winter, is The Mitten, by Jan Brett.

Even in my sunny Florida, children love the cooler weather and DESIRE to see snow and snowmen! The repetition and predictability in this book was something my own personal children loved. If you have followed me for a while, you know I love math and incorporating math into your entire thematic unit.
Winter Math: Winter Fun! The Mitten Winter Animals Addition Facts - Color Your Answers Printables for Winter Addition, perfect for winter time in your classroom.  A perfect way to incorporate your math lesson into your thematic unit when you are reading Jan Brett's The Mitten.
This week I've been working on the cutest Winter Animals Color Your Answers {Color By Code} Resource. It has 8 pages, one for each of the animals in the story. Addition is done and this week, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division, including all bundles, will be listed at TpT.

But today, for you, my friends, I have one page for you to download for free. Perfect to place on the students' desk on the first day back to school as a preliminary activity....

What type of animal? 

Why a mitten? 

Has anyone heard of Jan Brett? 

Then while the students do the math, you have a few minutes to prepare or get the next part of your lesson ready!
