Kids love new pencils. Hey...I LOVE new pencils:) There is something about the smell and look of a new sharpened pencil! I love the way they write. I love how they look when they are all the same size and sharpened in a nice container. (Kind of nerdy and a little OCD...I know)
Did you know that March 30th is National Pencil Day? I created some pencil flags for you to help encourage your students as the year is quickly ending. But first, let me give you some FUN facts about pencils:
1. A single pencil can write 45,000 words or draw a line that is 35 miles long!
