2c: Managing Classroom Procedures and Materials with a "Pencil Tree"

How often do you loan students a pencil and never see it again? Every time I give the students a test I loan them a pencil from the "Pencil Tree"
Pencil tree and sign out sheet

the student signs out the pencil and crosses their name off when it is returned. By storing the pencils in the "Tree."

all pencils returned!
By the students love that they have Mirado Black Warrior pencils to use...they just love the name and it's easy to see if it is my pencil or theirs. You can buy Mirado Black Warriors by clicking on the image here:

 I can quickly look and see if all were returned. It saves class time and I never lose a pencil!
