Do you find yourself having to sharpen pencils all the time? Here is a simple solution to all the pencil chaos! A simple bin or cup will work. I got these at the dollar tree. I got glitter glue to jazz them up a bit. I used old cups and wrote on them with a sharpie last year, so anything works. Put these near the door, and when the kids come in, they grab a sharp pencil. Before the kids leave for the day, collect them. You could even get a classroom helper who sharpens pencils at the end of the day. That way, you do not have to do it, and you can spend your time doing other important things!
