Right, I really want to do this: http://pinterest.com/pin/469922542337924032/ (Drat you Minnieminx and pinterest!!!! ) as I have a new class who are not very keen on reading. It's 'I read 100 books' represented by a paper chain with one link for each book. I want the challenge element and also the visual element of seeing the chains grow, but the teacher that this idea came from had them create the chains at home then bring them in when they had reached 100. I want to keep them in the classroom but not sure that I can manage 29 growing chains without looking messy. Any ideas for alternatives - I had thought about a reading tree with adding leaves but I think I want to at least start off with some individual things - or ways to display 29 growing chains? Thanks for any ideas!
