Mitten and Snowman Math With Literacy Craftivity

Here's a quick, easy and fun winter craftivity, that mixes literacy and math. 

Students choose either a mitten or snowman pattern; trace it onto a wordy section of the newspaper, and trim. 

Children guess-timate how many S's for snowman or Mm's for mitten, they will find and write that information on the matching recording sheet.

Students circle the letters, count them as they go, and then fill in the rest of their worksheet.

Kiddos who chose a snowman add facial features; those who chose the mitten color it their favorite color. 

Mount on a variety of colors of construction paper for an interesting winter bulletin board.
