This is from the last month of the 2016-2017 school year. I’m leaving it up for the summer because I like what the student did! This will be off the front page and deposited into the regular posts once the 2017-2018 school year starts.
I’m always saving stuff that glitters because I see many young children that like that sort of thing. So I find this roll of green mesh fabric that has glitter embedded in it.
This is the roll of stuff. I personally didn’t care for it because it kept leaking glitter as it was handled, I almost threw it away.
So the student take the insoles out of a shoe or maybe it was pad in a shoe, she grabbed some tools, and proceeded to punch holes in it.
She rolled the fabric into a rope/tube, poked and pulled it through the insole, added some knots…
…and made a wearable sandal! I take no credit other than staying out of the way. She got no help from me. But I could not have been more pleased to see a young student grab materials and tools and bend it to her will.
She wore them out of the room! What a great project from a great kid! I really need to do this with a class.
