Blankets, Quilts, & Afghans... Oh My

Winter is here and we are sharing special blankets, quilts and afghans that have special meaning to us this month at school. We are playing a 20 question game to find out about each day's special item and we are practicing our oral language skills by posing complete questions about what the special item may look like. After the game, the item is reveiled. We then move on to practicing our math skills and measuring the item finding the length, width and area of the item. We are also comparing and contrasting these items and noting similarities and differences. We have enjoyed this process this week. Each student is anxiously awaiting their turn. We will also be creating special paper quilts for our classmates this month!
