Thankful Quilt Square

This is a great project for Thanksgiving time. Our class began by sharing things that they were thankful for and I wrote them on the board (I sketched some of them out as well, as many of these were new words). I then shared my Thankful Quilt Square with the class and explained each item I had drawn and why I was thankful for it. I then had the students each create one of their own. A fun option would be to post them all on a classroom wall (or displayed somewhere in the school) together so it looked like a large quilt. *note, if you choose to have them create a border frame, have them glue it on first before they begin drawing what they are thankful for in the center (so nothing gets covered up).
