3rd Weaving Trees
After wrapping the warp on our paper plate landscape looms, which also serve as the branches and trunk of our trees, we learned to weave the weft. This proves to be a very difficult task for many third graders. Some have a tough time cognitively grasping the over and under aspect of weaving. Nearly all could not tie a knot to get started, add, or end yarn. This is a life skill!!!!! Before velcro and testing, all kinders had to prove this skill. So I really push them to do this ,and to practice at home. Here are a few that have gotten 2 colors woven on their trees. Thanks again to Cassie Stephans for the inspiration.
