A Solution for the Pencil Problems
Do your students consistently argue about pencils in your classroom. Do they magically disappear from one table and reappear on another? I have finally found the solution to the pencil problem for my classroom.   You may have already seen this image on inst...
I have finally found a solution to the continuous conflict over pencils from my tables group. My class was always arguing about the pencils and which table took their pencils. Each table now has their own color. This tape has solved all my pencil problems. A variety of colorful Duct tape (which can be found at Target) would work too.
