Your donation towards knitting needles for my IGNITE students will support STEAM learning. My gifted students love hands-on projects that are meaningful. My goal is for one individual project to spark the ideas for class projects, schoolwide and community projects. Our winters in Alaska can be quite cold and knitting hats, scarves, or slippers for local shelters builds community mindedness. There is no better way to feel a sense of accomplishment than finishing a project with the community purpose. Learning to follow patterns with increases and decreases, counting stitches, measuring gauge with a swatch teaches literacy, engineering, math, and logic. Repetition in the pattern shows how algorithms and coding have been around for centuries and are all around us. Each pattern will offer them novel tasks that keep them from becoming bored. Some students will even take their new skill to a higher level and write their own patterns. When their stitching doesn’t come out the way they want they learn to problem-solve and backtrack. Many gifted children struggle with perfection and knitting will remind them that mistakes are opportunities to learn. Fund this project and help construct a fabric of self-esteem, creativity, concentration, problem-solving in each student. With your help my students will keep a centuries-old craft alive.
