Do your children ever have those projects that YOU end up doing? This was almost that type of project but I made sure my daughter did most of her own work. I used to worry with my oldest child that if he did the project alone, it wouldn’t look “Good Enough!” so I would just have to help. There I go comparing to the other kids, whose parents probably helped too. So, no more! The teachers know when kids do a project by themselves and when the parents have a creative hand it in.
My daughter has a project due this week for the 100th day of school. She had to bring something in with 100 things. Anything, as long as it’s 100. She has to be able to explain it in front of the class as well. I love that – Kindergarteners, doing projects and presentations! So, after going over a few ideas, we settled on 10 necklaces with 10 beads. Why, because 10 x 10 is 100! So she is able to learn a little math too! Hahaha!!
- Step 1: Spread the beads out on the table and cut the wire for the necklaces.
- Step 2: Separate 10 beads, by color or letter. Ms. B wanted to do same color necklaces.
- Step 3. Add the beads to the wire. You can make words, names or phrases.
She wanted to put the letters on and when the students get their necklaces, they can take off the letters and make their own words! OH, THE NECKLACES GLOW IN THE DARK TOO!
It’s not the greatest looking project, but she is happy with it and can’t wait to take it to school and present it.
Do you help your children with their projects too?
