We began this during our 2nd 9 weeks for the Weaving requirement in the curriculum. I haven't really tried the fabric strips with 2nd grade yet...I've always started them on yarn...which helps me out 2 years later when they create an embroidered monogram...this experience with threading needles and tying knots is so valuable!
Anyway, they created these on cardboard looms using yarn and plastic needles. We took about 4-5 class periods to complete these. I found a large loom in the art closet and decided it would be awesome to have a collaborative weaving they could work on for our art show. Can't wait till the big one gets finished!
