Love of Learning

First-grade students at John Quincy Adams Elementary School spread the love during their Valentine’s Day activities. During reading time, teacher Debbie Sciacca shared books that highlighted the character education themes of caring, compassion and friendship.

To support their literary lessons, students described and graphed what they love about JQA, sharing sentiments about their classmates, teachers and favorite curriculum topics. Students then selected a personal statement and wrote their messages on fabric squares, accompanying their writings with drawings to illustrate their words. Once all of the squares were complete, each piece was connected to one another to form a unified class quilt of love.
