5th grade socks




half of 5th grade is in woodwork and the other half is in handwork. 20 kids total

so 10 are with me and 4 are either done or on their toes of their socks. 1 child I sent to woodwork because this child could not be in the advanced group any longer.

so that leaves 5 that are behind in their work.

they tuned the heel but needed lots of help and don't knit fast or do homework.
We have 2 double periods left before we switch with woodworking.

These are note to myself for next year. :)

They look great! Thank you for all your help. The time table was a great idea. The children seem to have no sense of time. When I told them our time line, it had no effect. When I turned mittens into recorder cases and took recess away from two boys for a week they started to knit (but they still talked a lot). I NEED to get speakers for my mac so we could listen to Harry Potter again. It was the only time they were quiet. Thanks again
