Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share some updates to The Great Pencil Challenge (the green link will take you to the original post on this). I loved the challenge and it did help us save a ton of pencils...but we started late in the year and now I'd like to prepare for a new school year, with all the necessary items ready to go.
So. I'm updating The Great Pencil Challenge posters with a bit of a different look (to match my new classroom decor line I'm working on) along with some other goodies. This free file features...
The Great Pencil Challenge display sign
a Check-In poster to record the next date (we check our pencils on Fridays)
a sign for The Stats...what fraction and/or percentage of students managed to keep their pencils for the week?
In addition to the display signs, this file also features a record sheet (actually, two! One with numbers, one without). This is something new I am going to use from the beginning of the year.
My students know that I always say "everything you do in class counts towards a grade"...but this can be hard to show with our pencil challenge. For me, I do want record of it because I DO count it towards a grade...their responsibility.
That's where these sheets come in...
Though I really did make these for you, my dear friends because I will be using my beloved grade book app, iDoceo (you can read all about that by clicking on the green link!).
I have it all set up already, with a separate section for The Great Pencil Challenge. Each Friday, I will just do a quick check of whether or not the students have kept their pencils for the week...
So, if you would like any of these forms to use for next year with your class, please click on the preview image below...it will take you to the free file in my TpT store:
I hope this challenge can be of help in your class as it has been in ours! Thanks for reading :)
