I LOVE WEAVING! MY KIDS LOVE WEAVING!!! WEAVING TAKES FOREVER!!!! ha ha We spent 4 weeks in class working on our weavings, and they are looking AMAZING! However, I have a few more things I need to hit to finish off the school year. So after the 4 weeks in class...I open up my classroom at 7:45 so the kids can come in and continue to weave. I have to kick them out about 7:58 so they can get to their classrooms(my room is on the 3rd & 4th grade hall)...but it is enough time to get a string or two done for most. I am always so encouraged by the kids that come in extra to work. Some even try to get their parents to bring them a bit earlier than normal so they can work. I love seeing their energy and excitement for weaving. One student actually wants to find a giant piece of cardboard and make a kid sized loom for a summer project. I wouldn't put it past her!!!
I'm with you on lovin' weaving, but yes - some kids move SO slowly. Maybe weaving would be a topic for your NAEA workshop?ReplyDelete
Your student's weavings look very neat. Every year I try a new weaving technique in the hope that this will be the year without tears, the year of total weaving success. Not there yet!ReplyDelete
I'm with Phyl - weaving workshop would be great.
