Sew Fun in Second Grade

Help me give my students the opportunity to utilize small-motor practice, creativity, and a new experience. These sewing kits are pre-cut for easy use and include safety needles so they can learn a new skill safely and successfully!

My Students

I teach a diverse group of 25 second-grade learners. They are silly, bright, and funny! My school is Title I and comprised of low-income families. This means that many families do not have access to fun adventures and resources. In turn, this lack of access limits my students' experiences. In my classroom, we often use technology to build and inspire while teaching creativity and positive-play. The problem-solving and interest they have shown in technology is inspiring (we're talking seven-year-old robot builders!!).

I wish to teach my students to unplug and spark creativity in a different way.

My wish for them is to see themselves as creators and not consumers. I hope that they can take their silly, creative, fun, problem-solving brains and find joy in doing something new!

My Project

These sewing kits will help my students to master a new skill they have not previously been exposed to. I will use these kits as an extension of our animal science unit. I need a variety of animals so students can create these based on which animal they will research.

My hope is that teaching this skill of sewing will show my students how to be creators.

They will learn how to make toys and puppets out of simple supplies. In doing so, they will also learn a new strategy to soothe their stimulated minds. The focus practiced when sewing is an invaluable bonus.
