As part of our first week of school, I always make my students some variation of these:

(last year...no access to a colored printer, so I used labels instead!)
Not only does it make them feel welcome, but the more practical use is now they have a sharpened pencil to use and that's just one less thing I need to worry about :)
While procrastinating grading and looking on pinterest, I found these:
What a cute Valentine's day adaptation! Plus there is no candy involved and I can't think of an elementary student who doesn't need a new pencil! Seriously, some days I think they eat the pencils, I don't understand how these supplies go missing so often.
If I hadn't made cute space valentines yesterday, I would seriously be on board with these! Perhaps I could make a St. Patrick's day surprise with green ones...I do believe there is a shamrock die cut at our school! Stay tuned for more crafty procrastination adventures!
