In our classroom, we use "crayons cups" to hold our crayons and pencil. I'm pretty particular with the kids about taking care of them.
Needless to say, some of them take better care of theirs than others! :)
A co-worker of mine has the "Desk Fairy" visit her classroom to reward her first graders who keep their desks clean.
So... the CRAYON CUP FAIRY came to our classroom before school today! She left stars all over the floor and a note on the board.
She even left a special treat for four kinders who take *extra special* care of their crayon cups. The kids LOVED it... and I loved how it really reinforces responsibility in the classroom.
I made a printable for anyone who wants to have a "fairy" to visit their classroom. I included cards for four "varieties" -- crayon cup, pencil box, cubby, and desk!
