Buddy Class Visit–Quilting Fun

100_4171

 

Our class has a buddy class this year.  We meet with our buddies about once a month for a planned activity, but we see them in the hallways, at all-school gatherings, and outside on a regular basis.

This month, the whole school worked on a fun project.  The project began as a collaboration between the art teacher and the librarian.  They thought it would be great to have another school-wide literacy project.  (Last year every class in the school read the book Granny Torelli Makes Soup.   This year’s project was called “Rethink, Remember, Renew.”  The teachers wanted something with the theme of renewal and creating new things from old.  We connected literacy to the project by reading books about weaving or quilts—books that focused on creating, diversity, and connecting to family and friends.  The weaving part of our project connected our Care for Kids initiative as we focused on sharing and friendship with our older buddies.
