It's Currently time again to join Farley's Linky Party !
I wish a pencil Fairy would visit my classroom because lately I've been buying packs of pencils for my students every weekend and they're gone by the following Wednesday. My students started the school year armed with 3 packs of pencils, but they were MIA by November. I've asked parents to provide their kiddos with new pencils or erasable pens, labeled my personal pencil stash with duct tape so the kids know to return them by the end of the day, and had the kids label their own pencils with their names. However, half of them are missing their pencils by the next day. Or the pencils are so short (and chewed up) that they can't go in the pencil sharpener. I'm contemplating starting Ladybug's Pencil Challenge
Anyone else have the pencil problemo and found a successful solution other than buying stock in #2 pencils?
Something that's been bringing me joy is my new Fellows Small Office Laminator, which I received for Chanukah. It's quiet and easy to use. I've turned into a laminating lunatic since getting it and don't have to worry about the school laminator breaking.
Wishing everyone a fantastic February!
