pencil holders

Today in the Clear Spring School wood shop my Kindergarten students made pencil holders as you can see. Each is personalized and decorated.  

During the month of June I have a mixed age group in the wood shop with students first through 10th.

The editor for my new book is almost ready to submit her version of it the publisher.  It is a long wait for me as it gets put into final form. It should be available to readers in March, 2022.

The pencil holders are an easy thing to make and the drawing showing the parts and their dimensions is shown on my blog. The teacher cuts the parts and sets up the drill press for drilling the holes. The student assembles the pencil holder following the teacher's guidance using nails and glue after first sanding and drilling the holes. The teacher must hold the top part in position on the drill press while the holes are drilled and using a cordless drill to make pilot holes helps to get the nails in the right position and to guide them in straight.

Make, fix and create. Assist others in learning likewise.
