Number Scrolls at 1st grade Number Scrolls at 1st grade: Reaching 10,000   One of the rites of passage in the first grade is working on the number scroll.  It starts with a sheet with a 10 x 10 grid and the students begin writing their numbers.  When complete, it is attached to a cardboard tube and the next sheet begins at 101.  The goal was to finish one sheet per week and keep adding it to the previous sheet.   A parent once inquired why we would do such a thing as it seemed monotonous.  It was a fair question and upon consideration, three purposes / goals were solidified.  First, it builds number sense by witnessing the numbers grow by one more and seeing the consistent patterns of our base-10 number system.  Secondly, it helps develop those fine motor skills and neatness.  Lastly, it demonstrates ...
