Don’t Let the Pencil Craze Get to You!


Are pencils driving you crazy?

Students not having a pencil?

Losing them? Breaking the tip?

The pencil craze got to me too!  It doesn’t need to!  During my student teaching we had cups with pencils at each group that we sharpened every morning and ensured there were plenty in each cup, which was great!  That was in first grade. Over the years, I became use to about 2-3 students per class not having a pencil, therefore, I always purchased a box or two at a time and handed pencils out to those students.   This year was a little different for me and the pencil craze got me!  So many lost pencils, broken pencil tips, or students just didn’t have a pencil.

I felt pencil crazed!  A solution must be found!!!

After much thought I came up with my “Pencil Station”!

It seems like every year, summer vacation goes quicker and quicker and before we know it, school comes a calling. What I’ve always liked about teaching is that each year is a new beginning. What happened last year is in the past and I’m always so happy to meet my new charges. New challenges, new things to teach, new things to learn, different methods and programs keep my teaching fresh. I’m going to share some of the things that I do to organize my classroom into a good environment for learning.
