Spark Student Motivation: Pencil Toppers

Happy Saturday Friends! This is the last weekend in September! Can you believe it?
I'm going to share an easy and inexpensive way to bring personalized incentives to your classroom!
Simple and effective ideas are the best, right?
I purchased these straw toppers at Hobby Lobby and used them to customize my pencils!
You can use them for anything! The black ones can also be used with chalk.
You can have several made up ahead of time and pass them out as needed or customize as you go!
As I was typing this post I thought of a topper I need to make...
Teacher Pencil and Reading Group Pencil!!!
My group pencils always seem to wander off-I've gotta add these!
That's it! Told you it was simple! These little toppers will dress up (or as I like to say, "accessorize") any pencil! Students will love using one of these pencils!

I hope you had a wonderful week! Please link up any lessons, ideas, tips, tricks, incentives, ANYTHING you do get your students motivated or excited!
Don't forget to grab my button and link back to this post!

  1. How cute!!!! And I bet the kiddos love those! You're is the simple things!

  2. This is a great idea! Do you buy the toppers or do you make them? (hoping you have a template! :) )

  3. What a fun idea! I am sure the students love it, and I would love to have one that says "Teacher's Pencil!" You gotta love Hobby Lobby!
