I got these beads at a garage sale from a former first grade teacher. She told me she used them as rewards for her students when they exhibited positive behavior. She said they would have a big ceremony at the end of the week and the kiddos would string the beads on a necklace at that time.
I would love to use these, but I'm having a hard time thinking of how. Someone online said that she used them as rewards in her classroom and when the students got so many beads, they got to take the necklace home. I just don't see that reward being exciting all year long.
Does anyone else have any suggestions? I'd love to hear your ideas!
