PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

One of my favorite things to do each month is to make a construction paper geometric math quilt!

Students learn shape names, how the different shapes fit within each other, How rotating a shape or changing it's size can create a different geometric design.

The quilt is a way for them to read color words, follow a template to create something, as well as create 2-D shapes.

Students always begin with a 3 inch square but each month they must learn new ways to fold and cut a square into new shapes and sizes. Your students will learn how to turn a 3 inch square into all the different shapes and sizes they need to make their pattern.

It begins with a simple half fold and progresses from there. This packet contains a quilt patch pattern for each month of the school year as well as the colors, sizes, and instructions to make a monthly geometric quilt. Every student makes a decorative and a geometric quilt patch each month. For display I cut down our large quilt to keep up through the year.

Every staff member that enters the room comments on how much they love the quilts! These quilts really warm up your classroom or hallway too!

Love, love, love the geometric quilts. I wasn't sure how well my kindergarteners would do or if they would like the craft, but I was shocked at how well they did. All I heard from them was, "This is fun." and "I like this craft." I didn't have to worry about the second round of folding and cutting because they were able to do it independently. We're still in the process of creating a big quilt for our class's Christmas Concert bulletin display and what I've put together so far, is wonderful. I'm so proud of my kindergartners. Thank you! I'm planning to make two more-- one for Open House in February and another for their graduation ceremony in March.

Hello!

I came across your page via Pinterest. I own a quilt store and was wondering if I could use this to teach an "Introduction to Quilting" class to kids during a summer camp? I think using construction paper first is a great idea before they jump into using a sewing machine. Please email me so we can chat about this.

I just purchased you geometric quilt unit. I did not see the August materials (directions, school house). Is this available?

On  August 11, 2012Reagan Tunstall answered:
July and August are the same quilt since most people either teach in August or July. I hope that makes sense. If you teach both in July and August, let me know and I can make you another one.
