We reviewed the shapes that we have covered in Arabic ( ) . As much as I can, I try to add certain activity whenever we are reviewing something that we have learned; it’s not just the usual question & answer session.
Here, M3 is preparing to sew. You have to:
🍃 Identify the materials for the child - corkboard/ cardboard, pushpin 📌, scissor ✂️ , sewing card, thread, needle and needle threader.
🍃 Get a sewing card and poke holes following the pattern printed (you may also draw). Ensure that the child is watching closely.
🍃 Measure and cut a thread. Thread the needle slowly and carefully. Let the child know that he may ask for help if he needs it on this step.
🍃 Create a “fake” knot by wrapping a small piece of tape at the end.
🍃 Pick up the card.
🍃Thread the needle through the hole, ensure child is watching closely.
🍃 Turn the card over and finish pulling the thread through the hole.
🍃Continue sewing the card.
🍃 Stick and wrap a small piece of tape at the end. Cut needle off thread.
🍃Ask the child: “Would you like a turn?”
✨ M3 enjoyed this and he was in full concentration. Sewing is something that kids can get started on at an early age, often around 3 or even younger sometimes. Sewing also provides a child with an added measure of confidence and self-esteem. .
