Jan Brett Book Study

December (2018) Jan Brett and winter holidays just seem to go together.  SMES second grade students dug into the many wonderful books of this author and completed a study which included a read around, developing compare and contrast scenarios using “The Mitten” and “The Animal’s Santa”, identifying story elements, and of course making art!  The study rounded out with computer creations, math games, and creating our own Hedgie the Hedgehog   Some of the favorite Jan Brett books include:  The Mitten, Christmas Trolls, Gingerbread Baby, Hedgie’s Surprise, and The Animal’s Santa.
