ARTS & CRAFTS CLUB

Over the past several weeks, Mrs. James and the kindergarten Arts & Crafts Club were very busy finger knitting! Children have been learning how to make scarves, bracelets, necklaces and headbands using their fingers and yarn! Fun fact… The longest piece of finger knitting measured 4,321.4 m (14,177 ft 9 in) and was completed by Niklas Bernhard (Germany) on June 10, 2004. Niklas, who used woollen yarn left overs supplied by relatives and friends, learned to finger knit in kindergarten and then used this technique to improve his concentration. The finger knitted chain took more than eight years to be finished and was wound into a ball measuring 34 cm (13 in) and weighing 5.62 kg (12 lb 6 oz).

The girls have learned to chain, single crochet, double crochet, and will soon be working on increasing and decreasing to create different shapes. We are so excited to start stitching new spring colors for the warm weather season, and look forward to showing off our new projects!

FIRST GRADE ADVENTURES IN READING

Last week in Mrs. Whitlock’s Adventures in Reading club, students practiced Reader’s Theater plays together and then made placard signs for their “costumes.” Students enjoy rehearsing, practicing intonation, and then sharing their play with the rest of the group. We also enjoy transforming our ActivBoard into a setting that corresponds with our play. These first graders are becoming stronger readers with great presence as they practice Reader’s Theater!
