circle, circle, dot, dot weavings

These were some simple weavings with 1" strips and some 1/2" strips glued on every other one.

Yes, I pre-cut their paper looms for them.
Yes, I realize I'm crazy. I've learned my lesson over the years, though, because watching some students cut looms is A.G.O.N.I.Z.I.N.G. It doesn't matter how many different ways I show them, measure them, etc half of them end up being a total disaster.

The result of my labors? 100% perfect results from EVERY.SINGLE.STUDENT, which to a first grader, is what makes the world go 'round. Their beaming faces after completion make my world go 'round!


  1. Beautiful artwork.
    The things you can do with circles.

  2. Joanna!!!! I LOVE this project in particular!!!! The results are truly stunning.

    We've made our migration to FL and will be here thru early spring.

    What would it take to create an author/illustrator visit to your school???? I would LUV LUV LUV to make that work. I have a whole new & other idea that I'd also like to talk to you about, but can't find your email???
