Pencil Sharpening

Keeping pencils sharp is always a problem, right? Have a supply of sharpened pencils on the supply shelf or cups on each table. When students break their pencils or they get dull, instead of spending time waiting in line at the pencil sharpener, they can simply get a new pencil and continue with their work. Assign a few Pencil Sharpeners as a weekly job to sharpen all of the pencils at the beginning or end of the day.
