Developing fine motor coordination has been a big focus and what better way than sewing, weaving, wrapping and tying.
Grade 1 and 2 created delightful pocket pals. They stitched onto the hessian and decorated with beads and buttons.
Next the students had to design and cover their pals and the finished pieces are beautiful. The students could explain why it was important to develop these skills and when they might use them.
Grade 3 produced some terrific woven trees combing a number of steps and skills. There was quite a lot of problem solving involved. We discussed what skills we were developing and how we could build on these skills in the future.
