So, I'm sure we all have the same issue in the classroom. Last year, I was constantly losing my pencils. They just magically walked out of my room. And with three classes and sixty students, there's no telling where the pencils were going!
This afternoon, I sat down and taped up the ends of some of my new pencils. This is for two purposes. One - they are pretty and match my classroom colors. And two - I'm hoping these will be easier to see and won't magically disappear!
