Inspiring life-long learning in all students.
Second and Third Grades began work on their circular weaving projects this week. This craft is a true head, heart, and hands endeavor. Students must plan ahead for working with different colors; they must feel the harmony between each section of weaving to know what will be pleasing to the eye; and they must have nimble fingers and a strong will to see it through to the over-under-over-under end!
The weavings by students have slowly begun to look more and more like a spider's intricate web--just like the one we're reading about in E.B. White's Charlotte's Web.
