Sharpened and Unsharpened Pencils Printables for Labeling

I bought some cute white metal buckets at the dollar spot at Target to use for my sharpened and unsharpened pencils. My old containers were getting pretty icky. I'm excited to use these! I loved Ladybug's Teacher Files round labels, so I went with the same idea. Here are my new pencil pails.

I made one page with round labels and the other with rectangles. I used 'Ready to Write' instead of unsharpened or dull because it fits with our PBIS 'Ready to' language and I like consistency. :)


  1. I was just thinking about this last night... right after I got a zillion pencils at Staples so thanks for the print out. I am having a dice linky party and a giveaway so hop on over if you have time!

  2. How funny Marlana,
    I was just thinking about ALL the pencils I just bought at Costco. I have them in soup cans that I decorated with my "Monkeys" but your labels are so cute!! LOVE your ideas!!!


  3. I thought about doing this earlier this week, but I like your graphics better. Thanx

  4. Perfect! I get flustered when all of my pencils (sharp and dull) get mixed up.


  5. I love these -thanks for sharing! Always need pictures on my labels for kindergarten. Thank you for your help the other day- now I can leave my blog name and link!
