January 15th: Fun projects!

kindness quilt patches

Today, I am grateful for the amazing activity I got to engage my students in!

Part of my role as the school’s guidance counselor is create activities that promote character education.  Our school district has assigned a character trait for each month of the school year so I have created activities and fun projects that correspond to these traits.

January’s character trait is “Kindness”.  I decided that it would be great to have the students use fabric markers to decorate patches of fabric by writing or drawing what kindness meant to them.  I will be piecing these patches together and creating a “Kindness Quilt” for display at the end of the month’s Student of the Month ceremony.

Above are just 4 of the 50+ patches that were created today by the students.  I will be sewing the quilt and posting more pictures and ideas as I work on it in the Craft (Peace) section of the blog!
