The Keeping Quilt by Patricia Polacco

Recommended Grades:3-5

An autobiographical account of a quilt that was passed down from generation to generation. 

Lesson Idea:

Mentor Text: Memoir Writing:  Read aloud The Keeping Quilt and discuss the characteristics of memoir writing.  Use this as a model/mentor text for writing about objects. Pair this with Ma Dear’s Aprons and Aunt Flossie’s Hats (and Crab Cakes Later).  How do the authors use objects to write autobiographically?
