I see students weekly at one of my schools and not as often at the other, so to keep them together (and keep my sanity!) we continue adding to the same project at the school where I see them more often. To make our dots look more like some of Vashti's dots we added stitching. I considered just having students draw or paint different types of lines as Vashti does but this was way more fun!
We punched an even number of holes around the edges of our dots.
Then we experimented with different stitches like a straight stitch and a whip stitch. They turned out so neat! The only problem is, now I want both schools to complete this step... But I suppose that would defeat the purpose! ;)
