Get Funding For Felting in the Classroom
Convince your Admin and PAC Why Wool is Awesome
Felting in the Classroom: We know teachers often spend their own money to ensure their students have fun projects that keep them engaged. We also know this isn't fair!
Here at Magic Trout Imaginarium we want to help you get the support and funding you need to create fun felting projects with your students. Read more below!
Why Teachers Love Felting in the Classroom
As a teacher, we're sure you can relate to the constant search for new ideas and projects that both complete curricular requirements and keep students excited.
After hosting hundreds of professional development workshop with teachers all over Canada, we learned that teachers love to learn and explore new making mediums too, but are often overwhelmed.
To help save you time and energy, we've worked with Canadian teachers to create a library of felting projects and lesson plans for a range of ages and abilities.
It's not all about the students though. Teachers love felting in the classroom because it's fun, earth friendly, stress relieving. Best part is, felting is incredibly forgiving and easy to re-work to create modified lesssons for all ages and abilities.
Teachers Are Our Favourite People!
We consulted with numerous fabulous felty teachers to ask them what support we could offer to get more teachers felting. It was evident, teachers needed support with funding. Here at Magic Trout Imaginarium, we created this presentation to help you to get your school administrators or PAC onboard!
Let us help you get wool supplies paid for!
