Inkle looming with 8th grade

First year I have tried inkle looming with students, and it's a keeper!  I have divided my 8th grade into two groups, one sewing and one inkle looming, when they are done they switch.  This was the best solution to 30 kids, no handwork room, and only enough room in the classroom to store 3 sewing machines. These small inkle looms fit right into their handwork boxes, and on nice days they can work outside so it isn't so crowded in the classroom...perfect size for portablility.

Within the next week we will begin plans for a huge mural they will make for the school!

Handwork update and Happy New Year!

Winter break has been wonderful !  It's time to review the last half of the school year and gear up for the next few months.  Here are some pictures of where we are in some of my classes.

Fourth grade crossstitch:

First time I really gave artistic freedom...these are only a few, and I will try to post all of them because they really are so creative and are really enjoying it!  Yes, we have a Giants fan...
