First, as a Registered Kids Can Sew Instructor running the Kids Can Sew Program/Curriculum, each student is required to have their own Student Pattern Packet. If you are serious about being successful when teaching kids to sew, the Student Pattern Packets are designed to help you achieve that. When students have their own packets, they will generally stayed enrolled longer, which is a benefit to you, the instructor. The benefit for the student having their own packet, helps them learn how sewing applies to them, as a individual. They learn to internalize and personalize what they are learning, sewing, and why. Students learn to take responsibility for their sewing projects, supplies etc. which is just another aspect of learning to sew. It also provides a more efficient classroom experience for both the teacher and student. Parents perceive a better value and a better teaching environment when they know their child has their own packet to work from which. Pattern Packets carry a copyright and copying, tracing, sharing, renting, lending etc. is strictly prohibited.
