Hi Joe,
As for pencils...I will loan them a golf pencil with an eraser cap in return
for one of their shoes.

  I am in need of some advise on how to handle chronic forgetters. Students
who continue to forget their pencil, paper and so on. I only require my
students to bring a pencil, eraser, and a notebook or sketchbook.

    a.. Has anyone developed a good way that keeps record of how often a
student forgets to bring the proper tools for class, or bring a pen,
mechanical pencil instead of a regular pencil?
    b.. What do you do to help the student remember next class?
    c.. If they do forget do you lend them the tool they need? I do because
I hate seeing a student set there with nothing to do?
    d.. How do you handle this problem with very little time disruptions?
  I teach High School on a block schedule so I will see a student
every-other day. Which sometimes its hard to remember from class to class
who forgot what.
  I hope everyone had a great summer.
