Day 1: Paint a Chinet plate with rings of colorful tempera paint (all occasion size).
Day 2: Paint patterns on the plate.
Day 3: Cut notches on the outside of the plate using a loom template. I created the loom templates with 19 notches. The students mark each notch with a pencil, count the pencil marks to make sure they have 19, and cut just to the end of the rim. Once this step was complete, they grabbed a long piece of yarn and joined me on the floor. I showed them how to add the warp to their loom. Once the warp was completed, we began to weave with the weft.
Day 4 & 5: Students continued to weave and add more string until their weaving was 4 inches a cross. They were able to add beads to their weaving if desired.
