5th Grade boys are weavers, too!

              I would like to feature  my 5th grade boys in this blog. 
Several of my boys worked together during their free time on the Fisher Price loom. 

          This Fisher Price loom is an "oldie but goodie".  I found it at a garage sale about 25 years ago.  My own children used it at home and then I took it to school. The kids really enjoy weaving.

         As you can see the these young men are experimenting with different weaving patterns and thicknesses of yarn.  As you can see, these three boys had become an excellent team!
If you look at the very top of their weaving you will even see a striped pattern.  The pattern has two colors, light blue and a darker blue. They also figured out how to make a checkerboard design!░░
Great work, men!

    Today I am linking up with
 Stephanie's Show and Tell Tuesday with Forever in 5th Grade.


 Please leave a comment if you have a spare minute. I'd love hearing from you.



  1. Weaving is great! I've done it all sorts of ways with all sorts of kids and it is always fun. Good for you that you're putting an oldie but goodie to use! Thanks for post. And while I'm here, please consider linking up for book reviews this summer! Check my post for more. See you around. Kathleen

  2. Oh my goodness! That loom is wonderful! I've never seen one like it. And the boys did a terrific job on their weaving!

  3. The old things are sometimes the best things! I think my students would love one of those - it might also be good for a student who needs a "break". Thanks for a great idea!
