Materials for projects will be provided
Knitting enhances mathematical skills, encourages creativity, reduces stress, improves problem solving, and refines fine motor skills. In this class students will learn to knit with their hands. They will gain confidence by working on a project that is meaningful and recognize their own potential in the process. Knitting allows students to create a blueprint of neural pathways that receive and integrate information needed for abstract thinking. A deeper connection is made to the world around them when they have created with their hands.
In this class students will knit a pouch, a stuffed toy, and if time permits a scarf.
