Follow the directions found at http://www.northwestjournal.ca/sash.html and produce a small woven item in a similar fashion to the ones Kira was able to create in the story.

You may also use http://www.montessoriworld.org/handwork/weave/weaving3.html as another resource.

This last one is great also: http://members.aol.com/mrsspyboy/weaving1.htm 

 

Pop Song

Filed under: Uncategorized — poet145 @ 7:30 pm

Take two popular songs from the radio. Change the lyrics to the songs and perform your songs as if they were for a video to be aired on television. You’ll be filmed and we’ll watch the video in class. I’ll provide you with instrumentals to just about any song you’ll choose.

You may use this website (http://kidsvid.altec.org/) as a resource for your scene since it will be filmed as well.

 

Nursery Rhymes

Take three nursery rhymes of at least three verses. Change the lyrics to fit three main characters from the novel. Record yourself singing your songs to the original tunes. I’ll provide the tunes for you.
You may use the following site as a resource for nursery rhymes: http://www.momsview.com/nursery.html
