Paper Weaving

Kindergarten practiced the skill of paper weaving this week in the art room. This was no easy task for small fingers and hands, so I was particularly impressed with their perseverance. Each student was provided with a pre-cut piece of construction paper and one inch strips of paper. They carefully wove the strips of paper through the slits in the construction paper, alternating the up and over pattern. This was a timely project as it linked an ancient Native American tradition to their art experience. Both students and their teacher were proud of the end results 🙂

About stephwheatley

Formerly from Britain, I have lived in the USA since 1989. My qualifications are in library science, but I've had a passion for all things artsy and crafty for as long as I can remember! I became the Primary Art Teacher at Shady Oak Christian School in 2009 and am thoroughly enjoying myself. I teach students at both Shady Oak Christian School and Shady Oak Primary School. It's wonderful to be able to share my passion at a place that believes in the importance of learning through creativity. Please check out the Shady Oak websites at http://www.shadyoak.net/ and http://www.shadyoakprimary.com/ to learn more about these unique schools located in Richmond, TX.
