In the glyph above, I used sports beads, stars and letters. In the past, I’ve altered the glyph directions and used smiley faces and other assorted shapes along with the regular ol’ plastic pony beads. It kind of depends on what I find at Wal-mart or Dollar Tree. Here’s a pic of some of the most recent fancy beads I’ve found. This is what I have left over after using it with my class. You can see there are plenty to split with another teacher peep to keep costs down. There’s an example of the necklace in there too. The big plastic letters are my fave.
