Making a Thingie

Super easy.  Super cheap.  Super appealing.

Follow the slide directions.

This is a great way to correct the angle of your student’s pencil so that it rests in their first web space.

Let your students chose the color of their loop and the design of their bead, button or charm.  Everyone is going to want one.

The one caveat is that your students must leave them in the class before they go home or you’ll be making them everyday!!  preview5
