Pencils! Ugh!

Last year it drove be nuts to constantly hear that pencil sharpener.

This year I tried something a bit different. I bought a nice, heavy duty electric sharpener. I cut out paper ears and a long paper tail, all out of gray construction paper. I then made cute paper eyes and a whiskery nose. I named her "Penelope". She has a sign above her that reads "My name is Penelope. I eat only pencils! My feeding times are AM recess and PM recess."

It worked great. Penelope was "not hungry" at any other time except recess.

I like hearing different ideas regarding pencil boxes. I think this year I am going to try to do with out them. They create such a mess in and on their desks.
