Hard to believe...

It's hard to believe that just a few months ago during the summer I was able to blog multiple times a week, and even multiple times a day!  Geez- I'm lucky to post on this poor ol' blog once a week now.  Plus, this time of year is just crazy in and of itself!  I'd say, "I promise to do better," but I don't want to make empty promises lol!

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!

I love teaching this standard (although we don't cover it until April and then we take an awesome field trip that is very hands on all about it) and I am always looking for a good quilt book. Thanks for the tip!!! :) Cute quilts and wagon!

Thank you for sharing this book! I was looking for something that would be good for now and then! Do you have a copy of the wagon printable you could share?

Thanks!
