Hello dear friends! Well, it has been many weeks since my class first began The Great Pencil Challenge.
And it has been going so well!! I've yet to buy a new package of pencils during my weekly errands and that makes for one happy 5th grade teacher.
So, I am back with the promised Pencil Honors sign. This sign can be printed, laminated, and used to record students' names.
We have our pencil check-in each Friday, so this is the time we conduct our ceremony of honors (which is nowhere as formal as it sounds).
As a quick way to work in some math, we have also begun recording the pencil stats. Which, for us in 5th grade, means a fraction converted to a decimal, then to a percentage of students who kept their pencils for the entire week. The stats could be recorded in a variety of ways, depending upon your grade level.
I compiled The Great Pencil Challenge poster and Pencil Honors poster into one file. If you've already downloaded this file, you will find a revised version if you download again.
Please click the preview below to see both posters, if you would like to use them...
