Freebie! Winning the Pencil War!

I wish I had seen this freebie last week! I was going crazy in class with the constant pencil issues! I went out during my lunch break and bought an electric sharpener and one hundred pencils. I sharpened a bunch of them and put them in a jar - then I told my students to drop a dull or broken pencil in to pull a sharp pencil out - just like first grade :). It is working so far, but I like this idea too!

It is hard to describe The Wise Owl's strategy as well as the freebie does, so all I will say is - download it and read it! You will be glad you did!
