Readers’ Puzzle Quilt
A “Quilt” will be made with puzzle pieces that are designed after books read by students
Originated by: Treetop Publishing
Throughout the American past, quilting has been many things and served many purposes: a reason for a social gathering, a commemoration of major life events, a collection of group, family and individual histories. The small portions of the quilt represent the efforts of one worker whose talents and spirit are reflected in a single patch. The patches are stitched together as a community function and form a representative collection greater than the total of the individual parts. Sometimes there may be several hundred patches in one quilt.
You are going to create such a quilt representing the combined reading talents of all readers. After reading a book, each person will create a puzzle piece that will be put together with all the other pieces forming the Readers’ Puzzle Quilt.
Provide the following information on each puzzle piece:
- Title of the Book
- Author’s name
- Number of Pages
- Your Name
- Your Teacher’s Name
- The Theme or Lesson of the Book (can be written on the back of the puzzle piece)
- A colored drawing depicting a major scene from the book.
Display the puzzle outside the classroom for all to see, announcing your individual and group success!
