we’re spending feb 14-18 celebrating valentine’s day, but we got a head start last friday.
it was q week and part of our day was quilt exploration. earlier in the week we used some precut thrifted squares to make 9 patch quilt blocks in any fabric/color pattern desired.
this was after seeing a beautiful collection of carefully labeled quilt blocks from a preschool grandma:
thank you again, mara’s grandma!
by friday we kicked it up a notch. the children were given a template for another 9 patch quilt block. but this time there were Rs and Qs in the squares.
R meant RED and Q meant QUESTION MARK which meant I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO CHOOSE FROM THIS PILE OF RECYCLED VALENTINES SOMEONE DONATED.
the process and the result was fun. again i was surprised at how excited some were at doing a very concrete step-by-step project.
after both teachers and a lot of preschoolers feeling sick much of last week, we’re gearing up for a very special week.
