I know you've all seen this cute little pencil sharpener all over blog land. Well, I am here to tell you that everything that has been said about this gem is 100% true! Say goodbye to your annoying, noisy, crank style pencil sharpener. And, say goodbye to expensive electric sharpeners that break after a VERY short period of time. This pencil sharpener from Classroom Friendly Supplies, truly is a teacher's best friend! No exaggeration!
It's fun and easy to use and quite attractive, too. My students love to sharpen pencils so much, that I actually use it as a reward for good behavior. Not that they're not always perfect! But, they try even harder now to be wonderful, knowing that they'll be able to sharpen the pencils at their table.
Look how easy it is to use:
Squeeze and push in the pencil.
Turn the handle until it's sharp, which is easy to know, since the handle loosens up once the pencil is sharp.
Squeeze and pull out.
Look at how sharp it is! Since I've been using this pencil sharpener, I've noticed my pencils stay sharper longer. And, my students are always super eager to use them.
Look how excited these cuties are to sharpen their pencils. I think they went to other classrooms and collected their pencils, too!
