  1. Girl, you totally read my mind! I'm going to have three different groups of students this fall, and I am planning on doing something similar. I bought some duct tape in fun colors instead of washi tape, but I think it'll have the same outcome. However, I hadn't thought of the containers. Love it!

  2. pencils are a HUGE pet peeve of mine. Please tell me how they can break a pencil in less than 30 seconds??? And please tell me where the eraser goes?? How much can one kid erase in the 5 minutes they were working??? Don't even get me started on the pencil-eating desks. LOVE this.

    I am having a giveaway, stop by!

  3. Great idea! The pencil issue drives me nuts. I know that our Specials (p.e., music and art) teachers ask for tissue box donations from the classroom teachers. Can you do this for pencils?
    I was just at Michaels and picked up some Washi tape! Love that stuff!

  4. Adorable!!!!!!!!! I am trying the pencil flag thing too… but for different reasons. I teach first and the pencil rolls of their desk and they cant find it and don't care to look. They just go get another. In 5 minutes my 30 students have gone through 175 pencils….. KILL ME NOW! I plan to write their names on the pencil flag, so should one end up one the floor we can find the owner easily.

    Good luck and keep us posted. A tiny idea you might like is having a student stand at the door and a returned pencil is your ticket out the door. Just a thought.

  5. These are SUPER cute!! I think I'm going to have to make them! Not sure if you know (although I'm sure you do because as teachers we have to try to save money in every way possible lol), BUT you do get 15% off your purchases at Michael's when you show them your staff ID! Every little bit helps! 🙂

  6. I'm convinced my kiddos eat the pencils! They disappear so quickly!
