1. Before reading the story (I always use the “If You Give a Pig a Pancake” type books, but any book with a clear sequence will work) do a short mini-lesson about sequence or order of events. Tell the students that while they are reading (or listening) to the story, pay very special attention to the order that things happen in the story.
2. For younger students, it may be necessary to list the events on the board as they happen. After reading, discuss the story, then tell the students that they will be making a quilt that illustrates the events in the story.
3. Give each student 6 paper squares and some pieces of yarn. The students should then write a sentence with a picture on each square that tells what happened in the story.
4. The students should put the squares in order as to how the events happened in the story, and then they can tie their quilt squares together
These make such a fun project and they look so nice.
