Okay...hoping someone else here has encountered a student who eats pencils and can help me figure out how to stop her. I have one student in my room that destroys every pencil I give her within a day or less. She chews the erasers off (I find dozens of them in her desk when we clean out each Friday), chews the metal part off where the eraser would have been, and then somehow chews the lead out over and over again all day long. She never has a pencil to use and literally moments after she sharpens her pencil....the lead mysteriously comes out over and over again all day long. It is driving me nuts! :lol: She is one of my brightest students (skipped kindergarten all together)....and to go along with that she is one of the most disorganized and messy too. (which I know can go hand in hand). she can't seem to get assignments done on time, ever, due to not having a pencil that works! Anyone ever have a pencil eater before or can offer any advice?
