When it is cold, mittens are great for keeping warm. I found this flannel board over at Adventures in Storytime. As I read through the rhyme, the goal is for kids to listen to the name of an object and think of a color that rhymes with that object. These mittens can be used with the plain side showing or the reverse in which I have taped clip art showing the object that I am saying. It is a great way to play with language and develop reading skills.
Colorful mittens for me and you,
Red ones, yellow ones, blue ones, too.

They’re my favorite mittens, and they are _____!
