This week, we read, "The Josefina Story Quilt," and thought A LOT about how our life is different now than it was back then. Here are a few activities we completed throughout out week:
We made our own patchwork "paper" quilt using the sentence stem, "In our wagon we would bring..." (because my students work in partners, they use "we" instead of "I")
My plan was to make a Venn Diagram using paper plates like I have seen on pinterest, but had no paper plates around :(
So, we just improvised and used construction paper instead!
In groups, the students drew scenes from the 1800s and 2011. Apparently our cars have springs underneath to make them bouncy hahaha!
That's pretty much it from me! I think I'll crawl back into bed and get a few more hours of sleep now! Only 1 more week until Thanksgiving Break! YAY!
