    What about mechanical pencils?
    By Anna

    This year I put a "suggestion" on my school supply list for mechanical pencils. Most of my students use them, and they have been a gift from heaven. They occasionally run out of lead, but I spend the money I would have on regular pencils, and buy lead (both .5 and .7mm- although I don't supply them with the lead, I will loan them some until they buy more). I use mechanical pencils all the time, so I use the lead as well. I do still have a box of regular pencils, but I will never ask for them on my supply list again! Hardly any sharpening (except for ITBS week) and those that do need to sharpen bring their own individual sharpener. Don't know if it would be reasonable for you to implement this year, but next year give it a try!
