Circle Weaving!

Third graders are ready for radial weaving!!! First, everyone designed a radial circle on paper. They broke the circle up into triangular slices, like a pizza. In each triangle they put the same design. (pics soon) Next, we moved into radial weaving on a loom. I let the studentes string their own loom, using Mr. E's guide! Of course, I had to do some and get a few tied off to start but they had fun.

K- Fall Trees!!!

First, we discussed warm colors, diagonals, and the parts of a tree. Then we collaged a torn paper tree. I found that the next class some students were almost finished, so they drew their tree and had to include a horizon line!

I wanted more room to add a Inspiration Station, which still needs a sign.
