Here's that "something different" to do for 100 Day that practices a variety of standards in a quick, easy & super-fun way.
- “Awesome! My 1st-2nd grade split really enjoyed this activity. Their individual quilts turned out so cute. They were excited to share 2 of their favorite squares with the class, then I hung them in the hallway to "rave reviews"! Thank you for adding to the fun of our 100 Day celebration.”
- “This activity is wonderful! We hung our completed quilt in the hallway. My students were so proud of the finished product!”
There are two ways to use this 100 Day, writing prompt quilt pattern.
Make a whole-group classroom quilt, where each students contributes 1-3 squares, or give each child a copy of the quilt and have them make their own 100 Day quilt poster.
For the classroom quilt idea, run off X amount of copies of the pattern (there are 12 squares on it) for however many squares you want your students to contribute, then cut them up and toss them in a container for children to pick.
They fill in the two blanks, add end punctuation to complete the sentence, then draw or glue on clip art pictures that match.
Provide a variety of scrapbook squares to glue their completed quilt square(s) on, then arrange them on a piece of tag board or bulletin board paper, to make a big classroom quilt.
Even PK kiddos can make a square by dictating their answers, then drawing a picture.
Since the pattern only has 12 squares on it, and the prompts are super-fun to answer, the quilt is also do-able as a personal, 100-Day quilt "poster", which students mount on large, square sheets of scrapbook paper.
It only took me 15 minutes to make my sample, so this is a great homework assignment too.
After students share a few of the items on their quilt, suspend them back-to-back from the ceiling, or create a wall display.
