100 days of school--too early to think about? Think again

This is my favorite, favorite activity that goes on the first 100 days of school.  I stole this idea from the internet 10 years ago so I don't know who to give credit to.  If it is your idea please come forward.

Every 10 days of school we make a 10 bead pattern.  I tie a not after each pattern of 10 so that we can count by 10s.  On the 100th day of school we have a colorful 100 day necklace to take home!  Already had 10 days of school?  Don't worry, many years I've started this late and played catch up.  It will be OK.  I get my supplies at Oriental Trading Company.

You didn't get this started at the beginnig of the year?  No problem.  It can be done in one day also. :)

  1. Amanda,
    I LOVE this idea! I usually do a 100 bead necklace on the 100th Day and end up sending it home in a baggie for the kids to finish on their own b/c it takes too long. This will totally solve my problem! G-E-N-I-U-S!

    Peace, Love & Learning
