Have an endless supply - Pencils are cheap when bought in the 100 to 1000 -5000 range. So here are some ideas about getting a deep supply for your classroom.
1. Get principal or ptsa to buy pencils with the message they want on the pencil.
2. Go to local, school appropriate vendors and ask them to buy pencils for you with their message on the pencil.
