Help me give my students everything they need to learn the life skills of hand sewing, stitches, sewing on buttons, and tying knots while they design and sew their own stuffed animal.
I get to teach a creative and enthusiastic group of third graders in rural Montana! They come to school eager to learn, explore, and work together.
My students come from a wide variety of backgrounds, and they are all different kind of learners.
They are an especially kind group of kids who work well together as a team. Our classroom is a safe place for them to be themselves, to try new things, to work hard, and to have ownership.
Each of the third graders at our school will learn the life skills of hand sewing, stitches, knot-tying, and sewing on buttons as they design and create their own unique stuffed creature!
This sewing project is one that students look forward to each year and are so proud of in third grade.
At the conclusion of the project we incorporate a writing component and create a class book of the stories the students write about their creature's adventures. Students also feel confident and competent in their abilities of new life skills to sew and make repairs with needles and thread.
