Are you planning on creating the syllable work for the others on your list, I teach third grade and I am using your resources and LOVE them. I am hoping that you have the others as well. Thanks so much, your work is awesome. Ellen

I purchased the Syllabication Resources and Set Up. On the definition for a vowel diphthong syllable, it says "2 letters, 2 sounds". It should say 1 sound since the two letters are blended together to make a special sound. Could you please change that on the poster and the syllable types page for me and resend it? Your things are great!

Thanks,
Liz

I've already rated Winning the Pencil War but I've got to let you know that after 4 weeks of using your pencil organization system, there are no more pencils or erasers on the floor! I LOVE this idea!! I included a glue stick, red marking pen and highlighter to the case. The kiddies that have lost items are starting to care. I will be getting more cases and starting next year's group with them right away.
Thanks a million!

Hello!

We saw your freebie, and would love to put it up on TinyGrads.com as a free download there as well by our large community of teachers and parents.

Though our policy of no "external links" prevents us from "linking" to your TpT store directly, we'd love to give you credit, put your name and TpT ID picture up there, and use text to point our parents and teachers to your store where they might want to purchase your “for sale” items from there.

We thought this might be a great a way to give you a little “free advertising” and for our community of parents and teachers (and the children they teach) to be able to enjoy your work as well.

We'll take care of loading your freebie up there, all we need is your permission.

Hope you have a great day!

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks!
Peter

I downloaded your Winning the Pencil War... I am a Middle School Math teacher. What often works in elementary, I find also works in Middle School so I think I'll give it a try. Anything, after 9 years of losing this war! And I have tried everything. I've even threatened to invent the "taser-pencil" that would just give a small shock as they leave the doorway...
I digress...........my question is simple. Do you withhold all prizes for the class if a student is missing a pencil from the pouch or simply that student? I am wondering if they are all depending on one another for this to work?
Thank you...
Lisa Wagner... eager for this to work!

Hello! I apologize for not getting back to you - I must have missed this question! I'm thrilled you downloading the freebie and hope it works for you. To answer your question - NO, I do not withhold from everyone if a student is missing a pencil - Just the student who is missing the pencil. This system is all about teaching individual responsibility and while I am all for group prizes, I don't think it would work here. Let me know if you try it, I'd love to hear how it goes!

Is there anyway I can change "vowel digraph" to "vowel team" for that syllable type?

I am using your materials to make a bulletin board, but can find no way to change this one word to go along with what we are teaching at my school. Thanks!

Could you please let me know where you get images and graphics from? Is it a free program or something you have to buy into.

My team teacher and I absolutely LOVE your "Winning the Pencil War" idea and started it day 1 of school. We could not afford to buy pencil pouches for 50 students so we got together one evening with our daughters and made quart size zip lock duct tape pencil pouches. We covered them with red duct tape and put one strip of mustache print duct tape on the top. We refer to them as their "mustache pouch." Can I just say they LOVE their pouches and the pencil system! We have such organized students and our wonderful custodian has made a comment about not sweeping up pencils in our classrooms! Thank you for sharing your idea!!!!

Kerry M. re: Winning the Pencil War - An Effective Management System
Let me start by saying I love this idea and I'm sure it will work for my 3rd graders. I know you mentioned that if the students realized at the end of the week that they didn't have 8 pencils, you found that some other students volunteered an extra pencil to that student. My question is what happens when students start to steal pencils from another student to make sure they have 8? (Has that happened??) In addition, does it matter if they are the pencils you supplied or can the students add their own pencils?? I know in the beginning of the school year some students will bring "cutesy" pencils. I was thinking of letting the students use their own pencils until they had to resort to start using the pencils that I have supplied or do you have a better idea?? Thank you!

Honestly, the prizes weren't SO amazing that the kids felt the need to steal to get one on Monday morning. Haha! I never really had an issue with stealing, especially because I collected the pencils at random times on Friday (whenever I knew we wouldn't need them anymore) so kids didn't really have the foresight to steal them before I collected the packs. I only supplied my own pencils, I didn't allow extra pencils to be kept in the pencil pouch. Cutesy pencils could be kept at home for homework, I wrote that into my teacher handbook at the beginning of the year!

I am going to try this with my homeroom of 6th graders this year. I have one switch class and will probably try the take 2/drop two off when you leave (or I can get my partner to implement with her homeroom) I found plastic pencil bags at Walmart for 45 cents. So not that big of a hit on the pocket book. My question is with the pencils they bring from home....I plan on removing the sharpener all together during the week so they can't sharpen their own. Is this bad?? I am just hoping this works for middle school without disgruntled kids and parents having issues about having to use my pencils only. (yah....those things happen in my district) What are thoughts on that? (anyone?)

So glad you found a cheap option! BTS is a great time to stock up on these pencil pouches! I would definitely remove the sharpener - I kept mine plugged in behind my kidney table, but students knew that they weren't allowed to go back their without permission. I never had any complaints from parents (or students) about this system, especially because I provided GOOD pencils that didn't break!

Love your uppercase letters! Any chance you have the lowercase letters somewhere as well. It would help my playdough word work station tremendously. Thanks!

Hi there Elizabeth,

At this time, I don't have lowercase...I'll add them in! Thanks for the idea!

Hey, I go back to school on Tuesday and will be getting my schedule with times. Id it possible to get this product to match that. For instance, could it say something like "Math 10:00-11:30." If this is possible, please let me know what I need to do. Thank you so much!

Ms. Bowman,

Would it be too impersonal to number the bags to correspond to the desk and cubby numbers? This is my way of saving time and keeping things neat when one student leaves another just takes their number....

Thanks for your ideas.....they are great!!
