Mystery Reader

Mrs. Mitchell's Class Quilt 2015-2016

Back in October, I had the opportunity to read to Katy's class as a "mystery reader." I chose to read one of my childhood favorites, The Berenstain Bears, Mama's New Job. In the book, Mama Bear turns her hobby- quilting- into a new quilt shop! 

After I read aloud, I led the class in a simple craft- a class quilt. Each student created a quilt square with their name and their own personal illustration. Then, a few weeks later (some of the students were absent the day that I was a mystery reader), I turned the squares into a class quilt. I'm not much of  a quilter, but I think it turned out pretty cute! (If I do say so myself! ;-)

I love how each student chose to illustrate their own square. There were zebras (class mascot), stick figures, hearts, rainbows and more! So fun! Katy's is the square with the pink heart (third row down, third column over).
