Mrs. Georgia is a classroom support teacher at Giving Tree Early Learning, but she wears many hats in the program. Mrs. Georgia bakes challah with each class twice a month. She also does special baking projects around the Jewish holidays.
Recently, Mrs. Georgia has been working with the Oak class on sewing! She used a large plastic needle and thread to sew buttons on burlap. Mrs. Georgia in conjunction with Mrs. Mahern, plan next steps to help children develop the fine motor skills to help sew projects together.
The Oak children continued practicing their sewing skills with more focused projects. They created keepsakes for Rosh Hashanah. Mrs. Georgia gave them more opportunities to work on their stitching skills. Students work on several skills while sewing including hand eye coordination, fine motor skills, receptive and expressive communication, and creative arts.
Mrs. Georgia continued working on sewing skills by introducing children to sewing machines. She started small, by using the sewing machine to stitch the side of fabric and moved on to thinner fabric. I wonder what they will make next!
