To control classroom pencil use in my classroom. I decided to make this sheet. I keep it on a small clip board near the pencil sharpener. I have a bucket for sharp pencils and a bucket for unsharpened pencils. If students do not sharpen their pencils in the morning and need a pencil during the day, they must write their name down in order to take a new pencil. Since we do a classroom economics program in our class, students must pay me a credit for taking a pencil. This way I can track who is taking pencils and have a consequence for not being responsible for sharpening their own pencils.
