I have another self-paced lesson to share with you. I learned how to crochet a chain when my three-year-old daughter taught me several years ago. Yep, my kids went to a Montessori pre-school and one of the many skills that they learn there was how to crochet. I have necklace after necklace of crochet chains.
I still bring crochet hooks along on long trips. I recently brought a couple along while camping with family. It was a hit and a lot of fun to do around the campfire.
Crocheting a chain is a gateway to bigger and better crochet projects. My kids at home and students at school love it. I hope that it will fit well in your classroom too. Check it out, the lesson has a QR code and URL to bring students to a video. This VERY short video gives students an explanation of how to make a chain. Students can pause and replay this lesson to help better understand the mechanics.
