The Rag Coat

We started The Rag Coat this week. I have absolutely fallen in love with this book. These are the plans for the week:

  • Study and locate the Appalachian Mountains

  • Study Coal

  • Make coal flowers

  • Look at quilts

  • Make a quilt square

  • Look at artwork in the book and expressions used

  • Books to go along with this: Silver Packages, Grandma's Attic, The Quilt Story

I am really looking forward to this rowing!!
