GETTING TO KNOW YOU ZIPPER PULL

The chart below tells you what each color bead means. Read the
chart carefully and choose your beads.

PINK – if you are a girl
BLUE – if you are a boy
ORANGE – how many sisters you have
GREEN – how many brothers you have
WHITE – how many pets you have
BLACK – How many schools you have gone to
RED - if you like pizza (0=don’t like, 1=a little, 2=a lot)
YELLOW – if you like reading (0=don’t like, 1=a little, 2=a lot)
PURPLE – if you like math (0=don’t like, 1=a little, 2=a lot)
SPORTS ~ pick 1 bead to show which sport you like the best
SMILEY FACES – if you like school (0=don’t like, 1=a little,
2=a lot)
CROSS - If you love Jesus (VBS/Faith-based school)
LETTERS - to spell out their name

TEACHER DIRECTIONS

1. Buy the beads (the ones with bigger holes are easier to string
string (black stretchy necklace cord or nylon cord),
rings, and
lanyard hooks
in the craft section of walmart, hobby loby, etc..
2. Before the day of the activity, cut the cord and attach the ring to one end. Make one for yourself first so you cut the cord long enough. You can always trim off excess cord at the end.
3. Put the directions on the board or give them each a copy of the directions.
4. Let the kids choose their beads using the chart. (I gave them a plastic meat tray so they didn't lose the beads on the way back to their seats.)
5. They get a cord, arrange the beads in a pattern of their choice, and bring it to you to knot the other end. It's very helpful to have another adult or two to help you tie! You can let it hang or loop it up
later...
6. When everyone has a zipper pull, the kids should all put them on.
7. Give them the questionnaire to fill out.

Questionnaire

Fill out the questions below. Just look at other students’
zipper pulls to find your answers!
1. Name one person who has the same number of sisters as you:
______________
2. Name one person who has the same number of brothers as
you:____________
3. Name one person who has more pets than you do:
_________________________
4. Find two people who have gone to more than one elementary
school:
___________________________ _____________________________
5. Find one person who likes reading the same as you
do:_____________________
6. Find one person who likes math less than you do:
_________________________
7. How many people in your group like school a lot? ________
8. How many people in your group have pets? ________
9. How many people in your group like reading and math a lot?
________
10. How many people in your group have only gone to one
elementary school? __
11. Write your own question!

Name glyphs

I use one from Mailbox magazine. I traced their names using bulletin board letters. Then the kids followed the glyph directions to color their names. I leave them up all year. You could have them make them themselves, although I thought waiting for the letters was too time consuming. Some of the glyph directions were: Do you come to school by bus, car or walk? Are you a boy or a girl? Is your favorite subject reading, spelling, science or social studies? etc. Sometimes they had to color with dots, stripes, etc. The kids enjoy this. Somewhere I have a picture of this but not on this computer.

I am pretty sure I found the original idea on this site last year and just adapted it. I forgot to mention that the kids usually attach the lanyard hook to their backpacks.

There are so many great ideas on Pro-Teacher.
