Elders pass down quilting tradition to St. David students

FDK Student, Xavier Wesley and Elder, Katie Begley plan their quilting project

May 11, 2016 - For Catholic Education Week, Mrs. Gran's Full Day Kindergarten class at St. David Catholic School, invited Elders into the classroom to teach youth the skill of quilting. Previous to the quilting lesson, students learned about shapes and transformations in their math inquiry. Pictured are student, Xavier Wesley and quilter, Katie Begley working together to plan out his quilt square.

Catholic Education Week ended in a culminating activity whereby the students worked with Elders to create a paper quilt that is now on display for the school to view. Classroom teacher Jennifer Gran said, “it is important for the children to interact with people of various ages as they share their ideas and learn from each other. This was a wonderful sharing of generational knowledge".
