Kid Pix Activity for The Mitten.
AR points .5 and book level 3.9
After students have read The Mitten, they should create a Mitten Glyph in Kid Pix. Have the students use the Wacky Pencil to draw a great big mitten or trace a mitten on transparency film and use that as a pattern to trace on the computer screen. Children should use the following criteria to create their own personalized Mitten Glyph, save and print. When completed, the teacher can create a slide show in Kid Pix of all the Mitten Glyphs and have the class interpret the data by looking at their fellow student's glyphs.
Red Mitten = I like summer best.
Blue Mitten = I like winter best.
Yellow Mitten = I like fall best.
