I use this sheet in the first week of school to teach my students how to correctly use their pencils. I model using a Guided Discovery approach from Responsive Classroom. I demonstrate using pencils to write, draw, and color and then have the students practice each. We also discuss any other rules and routines for using this material at this time. Teaching students how to correctly use pencils, rather than assuming they were all taught correctly before coming to your classroom, ensures that your class will know your full expectations for using pencils in K!
