Hawaiian Quilting

Let the Quilt Education Begin

What an exciting day today.  I love the day we begin our reading story Luka's Quilt because it "kicks off" the quilting activities for the year.  Our Quilt Raffle project officially begins too.  The children win raffle tickets by earning an "A" on a test, completing homework assignments, doing "good deads", good attendance, good behavior etc.  We collect the tickets in a large container and one lucky person wins our end-of-the-year quilt project.

Hawaiian Quilting

This is the week at school when I introduce quilting and my yearly quilt project to my class of second graders.  Our reading story this week is Luka's Quilt.  Luka's Quilt is about a little girl and her tutu (grandmother in Hawaiian ).  This is a cute story which includes much information about traditional Hawaiian  quilting and the quilting process.  There is also some conflict resolution thrown in for good measure.
