LOVE this!! I hate the prize thing too. I also had a problem with lots of sharpening so I came up with a plan. I assign a sharpening day. About 5-6 students per day. I start with 3 pencils per student. They sharpen them and have to keep them a whole week. And, they have to sharpen before school starts, I put away the sharpener at the bell. So far, so good. Next year I will add their numbers to the pencils and use your charts! Great and simple idea. The best ones usually are, aren't they?!

When you posted these in your class, were they the size of a sheet of paper or larger? I love the idea!

On  August 11, 2013Ladybugs Teacher Files answered:
They were almost full-page, I just cut off the excess and laminated them so I could write on them with a dry erase marker. Thank you for the kind words!
