I will have to admit that my initial reaction to the quilt project was dread and fear. The only quilt I had ever made was in high school and that was ten years ago. Once I started working on the quilt and talked to Mrs. Gowan, I realized it was not going to be as difficult as I had imagined it to be. It makes me feel good to know that the quilt will be donated to a child that needs it.
I think donating the quilt to B4Books is a wonderful and thoughtful idea. I also believe that by doing this it teaches us as students as well as the child the quilt is given to. The student not only learns the material but also realizes that it is not only about the quilt and getting a grade. It is about caring for and teaching children. Considering most of the students taking this class are majoring in education that is a huge concept. We are not only teaching the children but also we need to genuinely care for them and their wellbeing. The child receiving the quilt can be taught the different shapes as well as the concept of starting and finishing a project.
I would use a similar project in my classroom. I could make it a group project and let each child work on a square or even pair them up. I would then use the quilt project to coincide with something we were studying. The possibilities are endless because this project could be used with any subject.
