I love using and teaching with the delightful Jan Brett Books In Kindergarten. She is an amazing author and illustrator. Do you use these books in your classroom for little learners? Here are some fun, engaging and purposeful ways to add these books into your curriculum.
I have recently posted on Instagram some of my favorite books from Jan Brett that are meaningful this time of year, along with **FREE** activities from her website.

The Mitten is always a class favorite that is useful for this time of year. Just go to her website and download the the character cards for this book. Print them in color, paste on cardstock and laminate. They then can be used for a retelling activity. Voila!!! Purposeful activity for your reading and retelling practice.
More About Character Writing
Do you need another character and setting activity for your budding writers? Your little learners will have fun with this engaging and meaningful activity for your writing station.
These story element cards teach characters along with settings to beginning writers, along with the importance of each and their purpose in the stories. Use the cards to play whole group games, such as sorts and guess again, or print them out and have students glue them into drawing journals, as seen in my blog post HERE. These Character & Setting Cards for Beginning Writers are the perfect addition to your literacy station!
