PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is an activity that I've done with great success year after year with students in any grade ranging from kindergarten up to fifth grade. I used this lesson and activity on Grandparents and Special Friends day as a way to involve students and their families in a rich read aloud experience, followed by and engaging discussion about family, traditions, and values. Following the reading and discussion, families and friends work together with the student to create a quilt square to represent what important values or traditions in their lives. This lesson and activity could also be used as a great way to get to know students in the beginning of the year, or as a way of bonding and sharing at the end of the year as well. The finished product makes a GREAT bulletin board or hallway display!

Here's what's included:
♦ Suggested lesson outline for a class read aloud with discussion questions
♦ EIGHT different full-size quilt square templates with directions
♦ Medium and Small versions of the quilt squares so you can adjust according to your students' needs and time constraints
♦ THREE different options for lined writing paper so that students have the option of writing about their quilt square
