My fifth graders have "project boxes" in the art room. It's purpose is to hold their sketchbook and any "in progress" projects.
I rifled through project boxes to retrieve work that needed to be graded for third quarter. I was totally blown away by the supplies students had been hoarding in their project boxes. It seemed like my pencil supply kept needing replenishing-- but I am so particular about my erasers!!! How could I not notice all the missing erasers? And why were they keeping project visuals? What a mess.
