My students presented this quilt to me for Teacher Appreciation week.  My two homeroom moms (who rocked by the way) secretly met them in art class one day to trace hands.  Then the one mom took each piece and sewed them to make a quilt.  Needless to say it will hang in my classroom for years to come :)

We had such fun this year reading Shiloh for our One Book One School program.  The students loved hearing a chapter each day.  In the story Marty saves cans to raise money to buy Shiloh.  So we made this cute doggy bank out of cans to remind us of Shiloh and working hard for something in which you believe in strongly.
