2012-13 Kindergarten Story Quilts

John Muir teacher Barbara Vogel explains the purpose of this beautiful quilt project: “Students need real experiences with an end product to make learning meaningful and enjoyable. While making quilts, the students will be practicing math. They will be improving their language arts skills while listening to and dictating stories about quilts. Individual student quilts and stories will be the end products. Students need to learn that, even though they are young, they can help others. We will do this by making a quilt to donate. Students gain pride in knowing they created their own quilt.”
