Anyone Need a Lucky Pencil?

Even though I am not working in the testing grades this year, I can feel the stress and tension from my colleagues who are.  Can you?  I wanted to share this little Lucky Pencil I made for my students last year.  
I made the pencil out of a roll of Mentos (you could also use Rolos), yellow and pink paper, a Hershey Kiss, some aluminum foil, etc…  I attached a star with an encouraging poem that I wrote saying,
"You are ready, feel strong! 
Work carefully & you won't go wrong! 
Use your noggin, do not stress! 
Just do your best on the test!"

Come on over to see how to put it all together and for a FREE copy of the star poem!

  1. Very cute! Have you seen any other ideas out there to encourage our testers? I would love for my first graders to make something to hang give on testing day!


Thank you!
