    Spare pencil can
    By Amy

    This is my second year teaching third grade. This year I have implemented a spare pencil can. Instead of students coming up to me saying, "I found this pencil..." they knew to put it in the spare pencil can by the pencil sharpener. If a student lost a pencil, they would look there first. Floor cleaners (at the end of the day) would put all pencils from the floor into the can. There seemed to be enough at all times! It was much better than my first year when I sharpened 200 pencils and they slowly but surely were gone by the end of the year!
