Cow Jumping over the Moon


These first grade 'Cow's Jumping Over the Moon' could be my favorite so far this year. I always give a 'pre test' on weaving in the middle of the year to my 1st grade kiddos. Then I send them home and ask parents to help the students. To give them more weaving opportunities explaining that we do a large weaving project at the end of the school year. Our music department is putting on a program with theme of nursery rhymes. This project is going to look sweet adorning the halls of our school!!

  6. This is really cute! I want to do this lesson in my school too. Trouble is, I don't have 1st or 2nd graders any more. They are at the other building now. I will have to bump it up to gr.3! Oh well, they haven't had weaving with me yet. I know it will be awesome. Thanks for the idea.

  8. I really like the integration of weaving with a representational project. I've always gone abstract with weaving, but this cow is just so adorable!
