A very successful pattern idea involves students[ third grade for me]
designing their own neckties. I show them examples of real neckties, the
repetition of lines, shapes and colors --the different types of patterns or
designs [ overall, geometric, themes, like sports ,holidays, etc.]. We
discuss the symmetrical shape of the tie itself and draw it on the fold of
"12x18" oaktag or folding tag paper and cut it out. The students have little
problem conceiving their own designs, but I have them work them out on a
"practice tie" first. They draw their design on the oaktag tie, use markers
to color. We then use "12x18" paper to draw the front of a dress shirt[ can
coordinate color of shirt with colors in the tie], collar,buttons, pocket,etc
and glue the tie only at the collar--name neatly on the bottom--hang them in
the hall--kids love them--lots of compliments. Ceil Pa.
