TOKA JUNIOR BOOK PICK
Excuse Me, Is This India?
Written By Anushka Ravishankar and Illustrated by Anita Leutwiler
TOKA JUNIOR ACTIVITY
This is India Quilt
Inspired by the quilt made by Anna's aunt, we make our own quilt with motifs inspired by India and what Anna experiences in the book! It requires a special skill to put the quilt together - what do you think that is?
Explore Spatial Reasoning skills by making a quilt with Indian motifs! Spatial reasoning skills play a major role in later math achievement for preschoolers. Besides talking about numbers and their relationships to each other, we also need to talk about spatial relationships and shapes to help preschoolers prepare for later math learning! Spatial ability is the ability to mentally picture and manipulate objects - rotating them, looking at them from different angles, observing how objects may fit together and more. Incorporating Spatial Talk also helps - talk about the geometric shapes in this quilt making activity, how big or small the pieces are and their relative position with each other.
