What a great deal! 100 Popsicle sticks for $1.00. I think my box was $7 or $8 when I bought it at one of the craft stores. There are about 16 of each color which is great for Popsicle Stick Rhythms. You only need 12 sticks per students, so I would purchase 3 or 4 packages. Four may be a bit much but you would always have spares just in case.
Here is the post I wrote in January about Popsicle Stick Rhythms.
I'm thinking the variety of colors would lend themselves well for small group work. I'll have to think about that and how I could use a variety of colors for other rhythmic activities this year.
