Sparks of Interest http://tammymoroney.com Tammy Moroney Fri, 23 Feb 2018 09:03:44 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.5.22 Yr 7 Textiles http://tammymoroney.com/yr-7-textiles/ http://tammymoroney.com/yr-7-textiles/#respond Fri, 23 Feb 2018 09:03:44 +0000 http://tammymoroney.com/?p=768 Creating iTunes U courses for textiles,
Its always challenging showing 24 students how to thread a needle, sew blanket stitch and to sew on a button. I’ve made an iTunes U course targeted at year 7 Technology and Enterprise. Made multiple videos from How to thread a needle to How to sew on a button. The great thing is students have picked different stitches to start at and most are watching them at home coming in ready to start straight away.
Loads of students are eager to start their sensory cube and have been collecting ideas from a range of places including via Pinterest.

Take photos, recording how to pronounce the equipment is a great way of learning the names of the Science Equipment.
