The kids have a great time creating these scrolls in their free time in class. They start with the first hundreds chart and fill it in from 1-100. I check these and the next few pages to make sure they are on the right track and can detect the pattern in the sheets.
The students staple or tape the bottoms of each page to the top of the nest page and roll it up to store for the next time they work on the scrolls. It does become a competition to see who can reach 1000 first. When finished students enjoy unrolling the scroll in the hallway to see how long it is.
Many of the students want to continue on when they reach 1000. Some have gone as far a 5000 some years.
