Here is an easy prep and lost cost idea to spread easy encouragement in your school. This idea came from a coworker of mine who prepped these FUN pencils for her students for the morning of testing.
She used Avery Address Labels, a new pre-sharpened pencil, and a few minutes of time. Each pencil had a special message on the left side.
Here is How to Make These Easy Encouragement Pencil
And on the same label, she placed a student with their name on the right side. Across the top, she folded the label in half to create a flag. So Simple. So Easy.
Yet her students LOVED the token and effort so much. I think this idea would be great for those students who always lose their pencils. I also love this idea if your kindergarteners have a book buddy in another grade who is testing. They can decorate an easy encouraging pencil for them.
