I am pleased to share an idea and a resource that will help your students keep track of their pencils. I don’t know about you, but kids not having the supplies they need to do their work drives me CRAZY! Crazy, I tell you. The problem is that I GIVE them everything they need. EVERYTHING and they lose it, eat it, leave it on the floor, claim, “It’s not mine!” and let their neighbor take it. So one kid has 6 pencils and another has none.
But then I had the brilliant idea to flag my pencils! I've done it for 3 years and it has worked like MAGIC. I reward the students for keeping track of their pencils until they are all used up.
Download and enjoy all of your students having their pencils ready to rock and roll and learn what you have to teach them!
