I was inspired write this post after reading The Inspired Apple.
(Ha! No pun intended!)
Basically, her question was: How do you keep your students supplied with pencils?
Even though my strategy isn't perfect, I thought I'd share!
First of all, my students are NOT allowed to sharpen pencils.
If they need their pencil sharpened,
then they put their pencil in the "Dull" cup and take a new pencil from the "Sharp" cup.
(Oh and about the erasers... my students always have their own eraser top...
they keep their eraser when they switch their pencil).
