The classroom I visited in Switzerland was a multi-age classroom.  There was a completion project before going on to first grade – a circular weaving made into a turtle.  This circular weaving was the shell of a felt turtle.

I noticed that the teacher provided several opportunities for weaving and circular weaving.  I loved this huge weaving in progress behind the block area:

There was this great idea for a large weaving space on a wall made with chicken wire.  I have made this for my classes before and they loved it!

These are the circular looms in progress in the kindergarten for their turtles.
This is a graduating kindergartener sewing his circular weaving to the felt turtle form.  It was then stuffed.
