  4. So cute! I downloaded and been following to see how the challenge is working out for you. 🙂 I should truly get it together and make it happen. It's a fabulous plan!

    I really love the stats portion of this. Way to keep it academically rigorous and challenging, yet fun at the same time. Fabulous Kristen, really fabulous!

  6. We have been doing the pencil challenge for the last few weeks. I love it! I don't tell the kids when I am checking, so they have to be sure to have the pencil at all times. I even had one student who didn't want to lose it so he put it in his backpack for safe keeping. Lol. I had to explain the point is to have the pencil with him so he could use it. Thanks for the cute freebie!

  7. YES!!! My whole team is doing it!! Thanks for a fabulous idea and some gorgeous signs!!

    I wish I could use this, but my kids have a communal pencil bucket. I love the look though!

  13. Rachel says:

    Brilliant! I just went on maternity leave, but I look forward to doing the Great Pencil Challenge in the fall.


  14. Sounds like an AWESOME idea! I will be using this in the fall…but I'll have to give some kind of incentive with my second graders! After a few weeks most of them will be over having recognition and want a prize!

  15. Miss Mel says:

    <3 this! Just tried it in my class and my 5th graders went CRAZY trying to hold on to their pencils! We're up to 2 weeks now… 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  16. What an Awesome Idea! Thanks so much! Pencils are always an issue…. I can't wait to do this in my classroom.

  17. Love love love!!! Thanks for sharing!!!
