Hi, thanks for all the great ideas, conversations and websites I've gotten from the art exchange! I wanted to share a bibliography for elementary books (older kids enjoy them too) that 2 teachers in my district have compiled. Go to my website...
http://www.lex5.k12.sc.us/webpages/jcouch/resources.cfm
and scroll down to Keener and Hayne art bibliography. They have organized the bibliography into catagories for easy use. Enjoy!
About the weaving question (sorry if I lag behind)... Before weaving with first grade I let them weave themselves between the chairs in my room... I lined up chairs, formed a parade of students and we traveled "Over and Under" the chairs so that we moved between, in a squiggly line. Then we started weaving on 6x18 inch paper, with the weft cut into 6x1" strips...The warp was created by folding the 6x18 paper into "hot dogs" twice, then cut into 4 strips. We then combined them (glued to a paper background) to create a Kente cloth weavng... thanks again for sharing the ideas! jane
