Hello all! We are currently under a tropical storm warning so I am popping in to tell ya about this amazing pencil sharpener the kiddos and I had a chance to try out the last week of school.
I have seen the Classroom Friendly Pencil Sharpener on several blogs and have to be honest.....wasn't sure I was believing what I was reading. I don't know about you, but I have a love/hate relationship with my pencil sharpeners.
My classroom has this lovely bolted to the wall:
It is wonderful for an upper body workout, but for sharpening pencils....not so much:/ (it doesn't even hang right....)
Then I invested in electric sharpeners.....one not so much money, the other, a little more money. Both worked for a little bit BUT both got jammed often and one sounds more like it's giving a bad root canal than sharpening a pencil.
My kiddos are SUPPOSED to have pencils sharpened before the bell rings....BUT, you always get that one or 2 kiddos that forget....that's fine until I'm in small groups and the "root canal" sound starts......
So, I decided I had to see what all the chat about this sharpener was....couldn't hurt, right? Better than the horrible drilling sound.....
Enter Classroom Friendly Sharpener...
I have to say I was pleasantly surprised:) It is VERY quiet.
And sharpen pencils???????? Take a looksy..
No noise, no upper body workout (as much as I might need it...my kiddos don't), and super sharp pencils every time!
I'm also excited because it came in black and that matches my classroom:) My kids couldn't believe it....especially since they had to wrestle with the others all year...lol.
Will be grabbing another one of these before the new school year starts:) If you want to check them out for yourself, click on the pic below:
Don't forget, I've kicked off the weekly Monday Made It...
You can still link up this week or get something ready for next:) I'm so excited about all the great ideas I am adding to my to do list:)
Have a great day and if you're in Florida with me, stay dry and safe:)
