One sheet of paper makes two Finger Mittens. Use index- or cover stock-weight paper to print these in black/white or color. Students use their Mittens to respond to questions, descriptions, flashcards, photographs, or physical objects. Make 4-6 mittens for use in Stations, or make enough to be used by pairs of students as a classroom activity. Once assembled, Mittens can be used throughout the school term for instruction, review, and assessment; and they can usually be used for several school years.
