I know people have different opinions about pencil procedures. In the past, if the kid was missing a pencil, I'd find something out of my desk or around the room for them to write with. This year, I'm trying to streamline that process a little. I got a magnet basket. I'm thinking I will stick a few pencils in the basket. If someone needs a pencil, they can go get it independently, and write their name on the board. When they return the pencil, they can erase their name. Now, I've been brainstorming possible ways for my creative lil 7th graders to muck up this system. So far, all I've been able to think of is playing with the white board, which is easy to stop. What other things should I be ready to trouble shoot?
