This is my first time writing, although I've enjoyed reading the list
for about four months.
I will be starting a weaving project with my 5th graders soon on
cardboard looms, which I have already prepared with slits. I've done paper
weaving at various grade levels but have never done much with yarn weaving.
I would love to hear your approaches to weaving. ie. How do you distribute
the yarn for warp and weft? How many techniques and which ones do you show?
Do you use any tools to help you weave? Any pointers would be great. I see
the kids for 45 minutes once a week and both classes are large (27 & 32
kids). They've just finished a paper weaving.
Thanks in advance! Shelley
