The kids sit at the old tyle desks. They were told to come in with their pencils sharpened in their pencil case. So far, half the class has come in with sindividual sharpeners, so break their pencils on purpose and conitunally raise their hand to dump the scraps out or today dumped them out on the floor. I did NOT want sharpeners brought in, but I'm new and did not send the supply list out last year. I told them they could sharpen their pencil using the class sharpner, but then everyone was again raising their hand, so that's not going to work out. Suggestions? I don't want to take all their pencils from them, bc then there will only be one bin and I don't need kids just getting up to get a pencil. Also, should I send a note home to parents or wait until parent teacher night to mention I don't want mechanical sharpenrs brought in.
