The A1 Keeping Quilt

The A1 class made a keeping quilt with Mrs.Kulis at the back table of our classroom. Students worked on the project in the middle of November. The idea came from a book by Patricia Polacco. All the students sewed on a patch that represented themselves. The quilt helps build classroom community and helps us connect with literature.

Lets talk about Colonial Times The A1 superstars have been working on learning Co;onial Times. The A1 class is learning a lot of people. Like Jona, Tapenum, Sarah Morton, Samuel Eatons, and John Turner the first. Where we learned them is in A1 and A2. The Pilgrims were in Plymoth. They tot us the food, jobs, and clothes. The time they were alive was in 16 to 17 hundreds. There were pilgrims and wampanogs. Did you know that the smallest person in the family had to take the chamber pot out. That wasa rule for the pilgrims. The wampanogs dressed a little fancy when they visted

the pilgrims. The pilgrim girls like Sarah Mortan and Jona they wore pedicoats. The wampanog people just wore dear skin. The houses that the pilgrims had were not that great. The house only had like two window. It only got them through the winter. The wampanogs dident have a great home to. They had a house that is called a longhouse. That house just had a couple of beds for your family. I would want to be a pilgrim. Would you want to be a pilgrim or a wampanog?
