Readers' Workshop: Story Quilts

In Readers' Workshop we have continued with our Character Study groups and Guided Reading Groups. As a group finishes their Guided Reading group experience, they are creating a story quilt. The story quilt squares represent each chapter of the book. On each square, there is a picture depicting the most important scene in the chapter along with a description of what is happening or a quote from the book. The edges and corners of the story quilt square have to use images or symbols that represent things that happened in that chapter. The first two story quilts are almost finished and are a beautiful representation of the stories.
