Beading and Baskets

This is how our projects evolve. We started out Beading onto the rexlace (plastic rope)....and when most of them had finished, Ali was fascinated with how the beads sounded as she poured them from basket to basket. She was here for another 30 minutes or so pouring and while doing so she was saying things to herself like....'this basket has more, this one has less, lets fill this one with all the beads....etc...All math terms.....

Great for eye hand coordination.....and after they do this enough times...they will start patterning the beads automatically...I won't even have to tell them to. :)
