I currently have plastic bins in my class for students to switch out their pencils. They switch pencils out daily. This cuts down on interruptions in class, and I am able to sharpen the pencils, which helps preserve my electric pencil sharpener. Currently my bins are pretty plain. Well, Wendy at Cricut Your Classroom has inspired me to upgrade! I LOVE how she recycled Crystal Light containers to make hers. I unfortunately did not have any containers to recycle, but I found these cute tins at JoAnn's for 40% off! That's still economical...right? I used Gypsy my to manipulate the pencil from Potpourri. The bear (our mascot again) and apple are from Doodlecharms. The font is Makin' the Grade. I made the tins coordinate, but not look too closely alike. I find that if they do not look different enough, my second graders, in a hurry, often mix up the two! I also coated it with Modge Podge to add some durability to it. Well this is definitely an upgrade to our daily routine.
