“Is it a harp?”

Today was the first day that friends were able to work on the new classroom loom!  We began by looking at the loom and making guesses about what we thought the new object in the Studio was.

 Cole: Is it a harp?

Abdoulaye: It looks like a guitar!

Leah: A fan?

Paris: It feels like a carpet.  Or a blanket.

Next, children practiced weaving on paper looms to get their fingers warmed up… over, under, over, under!  Many friends made patterns on their paper loom and some noticed that they started to look like checker boards.

 Once children had finished practicing on the paper looms, they worked individually on the classroom loom.  Friends enjoyed selecting colors of yarn and showing their peers what they created.  Throughout November, all children in Pre-K will have a chance to use the loom as it’s now going to be a regular center in the Studio!
