3rd grade weaving project

The 3rd graders are starting to finish up their weaving projects inspired by Australian Aboriginal dilly bags. This has been a fun introduction to weaving which will come in handy next year when they begin a more complex weaving unit in the 4th grade! 



Classes can earn crayons for their class crayon box when they are in the art room for good behavior. When their crayon boxes are full, they earn an art reward day aka ART-stravaganza. This is a fun day where I put out a variety of art supplies  (scrap paper, stencils, texture plates, blocks, and various odds and ends from my art “treasure” box to name a few) for students to use as they please to create a project with no rules. It is a great way to give the students some structured “down time” while still getting them to use their imagination and creativity!
