My class loved reading Patricia Polacco's The Keeping Quilt the past two weeks. It's such a special story about the importance of family and traditions. Students completed their own family tradition quilt square too and were proud to share a piece of their heritage.
After reading The Keeping Quilt, I read aloud some of her other books: Babushka's Doll, Some Birthday, Chicken Sunday, Thunder Cake and the most touching of the bunch, The Junkyard Wonders
To show our appreciation for her talent as a wonderfully inspiring author students wrote thank you letters to Patricia Polacco today.
My class was "Over the Top" excited when we received a letter in return from Patricia Polacco.
There's no better way to bring letter writing to life than this!
Thanks for taking a "Peek in my Planbook".
