This was a lesson inspired by Cassie Stephen's circle weaving project. She also has a few videos of how she teaches this lesson. I used her vocabulary and it was very helpful for them to understand the steps. We started by painting our plates with warm colors.
The next week, we added the warp lines.
After that, we added the weft strings, or the "circlely bits" as we called them. No matter how far they got or even if they missed a couple of strings, these still turned out nice and look great in the hallway. Is it spring time yet?!
