Oh boy, here we go again!
Probably one of the best opening rose ceremonies yet! Our new music teacher had faculty and staff singing an African song in 4 parts, and we all came up to the front like a flash mob at the beginning...it was pretty cool, ya had to be there!
I did have one class today, 5th grade. We just talked about our Summers, I gave them the skinny on the year, then we had some free time...some still had their cross stitch from last year, and were working on those--how fabulous!
What we will be doing in 5th:
*Last minute addition of pencil roll ups, something we do in 6th grade, but the class has a need, so here we go first thing...pencil roll ups.
*Dyeing our wool for hats...next week in small groups while others are sewing pencil roll ups.
*Refresher in knitting and purling and casting on...most should remember, this was a great knitting group.
*Hats, wrist warmers, socks.
*Later we will get an old fleece they harvested and card, dye and drop spindle spin it! I am hopefull to make rock drop spindles...the school has some of the regular kind, but I like the idea of walking down to the river, finding their rock, spinning, then returning that rock. This may happen in Nov or Dec, we shall see.
*For those high achievers, or those who are just frustrated with knitting but tried their best, we will crochet a little at the end....it seemed to be all the rage with last year's 5th at the end of the year, so why not?!
