I don't know who likes pokey pinning more, me or my students. (Please click here if you are unsure what Pokey Pinning is to get more details). My students enjoy it because it is so relaxing and produces magical results. I love it because it is silent MOST of the time the class is working on pinning. I say most because my students who have weak hand muscles will let out an occasional groan or a quick, "My hand hurts!"
Last time we were Pokey Pinning, one of my young ones (with weak hand muscles) said he couldn't finish it because his hand hurt so badly. I told him to keep going and, before I knew it, he was bringing me his completed project (and I hadn't heard anymore complaining). I asked him, "How did you do that so quickly?" He showed me a clothes pin which only confused me more.
