So were weaving in 2nd grade. I like to start with paper weaving to make sure students understand the pattern of weaving strips(before moving onto fabric strips/ribbon). However, they were so plain...I just wasn't happy with them & felt they didn't look like 2nd grade work. So this week, we once again looked at African fabrics...pointing out colors, patterns, designs, and such. The students used construction paper crayons to go back on top of their weavings and make them more interesting. I LOVE THE RESULT!
