Last year, while working on rosaries with the 4th and 5th grade, I realized we
were running low on beads! I issued an SOS in the school monthly newsletter
for all those beaded carseats that were lying around garages and basements!
the response was great! I had some students cut the nylon strings and sort.
They seemed to appreciate the work I had put in to preparing each classes
materials, and i no longer had beads rolling around the art room floor, too!
