Elementary Stitchery - Threading a Needle

This is how I teach my students in grades K through 5 how to thread a needle.

The threader tool I use is a piece of copper wire that I wrapped around a pen. I used masking tape to tape the ends.

Another odd one from Cyriak. (I love it!) Not so sure my little ones would appreciate it, but my fifth graders would think it is very cool.

The Big Pig Song

This is a video I could show pre-K through second if there is time left over at the end of class.

Thanks for the "Hooked on Phonics" video idea, Ms. Hahn.....Mini Matisse.

This is annoying to me, but I think my fourth and fifth graders will be riveted to it during dismissal.

Building a Nest

I wish I had the room to do this!

Bird's Nest Craft

This is similar to the idea I want to use for pre-k nests.

Sesame Street: Grover Finds A Bird's Nest

I'm building a preschool lesson on nests and may use this during that lesson.
