How to Draw a Dreaming Story

One of my goals for the new year is to combine more art projects with math and writing standards, and this is a result I’d like to share. A tessellation is made to create the quilt, personal drawing is added for the face, and a description of a dream completes the artwork. Above is a diagram of the 2-page PDF file that you can download for free HERE.  I’d love feedback to see if this is helpful, thanks!

Thank you so much for this! I homeschool my 3 girls (ages 8, 10 and 13). This will be a wonderful project. I'll let you know how it goes!

A wonderful idea! I'll do it with my class(3rd grade)after our Christmas vacations in January.

Thank you

Thank you for setting this project up with such precision. I am looking forward to doing this with my Upper Elementary class in early January. Your website is delightful!

I have been following your blog for years and have used so many of your wonderful ideas with my students. I'm just getting ready to start a tessellations unit and can't wait to use this great project. I hope you'll find time to do more integrated projects like this one. Or even add to the many amazing projects you have posted over the years.

Thanks for sharing your talent.

Warmly,
Mrs. Larsen

Kathy,
I added this great project to my tessellations unit and was really thrilled about using it with my fourth grade groups. Last week I went to pick up a group of 4th graders from their homeroom and guess what the whole class was working on? Yup, you're amazing Dreaming Story. I told the teacher that she had stolen my idea. Ha Ha. I guess the secret is out. You are amazing and I'm so grateful for the work you do and how willing you are to share it.
Warmly,
Mrs. Larsen

That's funny, shows you what a small world it is. Thank you so much for your kind words, I really adore what I do and feel lucky to live in the age of the internet. Makes everything so much more fun. :)
