With Love Up to Your Chin

“With Love Up to Your Chin” by Linda Martin Andersen
Yes, this is the month of love. After reading Amy Ludwig VanDerwater’s latest blog post, I wanted to share about her recent school visit. Just reading it, made me want to curl up with a word blanket.
Imagine being a visiting author and seeing this upon arrival! Children from Wealthy Elementary School in East Grand Rapids, MI and their art teacher, Peri denDulk made the word blanket below. Isn’t it breathtaking?
The theme for this word blanket is friendship. If you were planning a word blanket creation, what theme would you base the project on? Have you ever made a class quilt with students? I know a teacher who did. A parent volunteer sewed the squares for them. The finished quilt was lovely and hung on the wall of the classroom.
Thanks for visiting “A Writer’s Playground.” I hope you’ll leave a comment here or on Amy’s blog post.
