Weaving, as part of the work on the Practical Life shelves, is meant to help children to develop fine motor skills and concentration, while building self-confidence with successful experiences.
In our primary class, we break down the complicated weaving process into simple steps to help our children master the weaving concept, and thus ensuring a successful experience.
First, the child learn to weave over and under using ribbons in a metal grid. This introduced the “over and under” weaving concept.
Then, the child weave the plastic strips in a laminated card base to practice the skill.
Now, they are ready for exciting weaving project. Here is the first one – potholder!!
