This is a fun way to help the students remember to pick up their classroom supplies.The story starts out with Mr. Pencil excited for a new school year. At first the students take good care of him. As time goes on they start leaving him alone. Mr. Pencil then finds his eraser getting chewed on and finally he ends up broken on the floor. At the end of the story the students put Mr. Pencil back together and give him a new pencil cap for a hat. Mr. Pencil is then able to help the students once again.
This is a book I originally wrote for my first graders to help them remember how to take good care of our classroom pencils. I was tired of finding pencils broken and not put away so I thought I would try a story. I wrote and illustrated the book. The drawings are painted with watercolor. There are more characters in the story that can be used for different stories if this book is a hit. Mr. Scissor and Red the Crayon also appear.
