This is a story all about how my classroom got turned upside down. I'd like to take a minute just sit right there, I'll tell you how I became a fan of this green sharpener!!
Ok, here's the REAL story....
Last year I received this pencil sharpener from Troy at Classroom Friendly Supplies just before the school year began. (Fun fact: Troy is the inventor of this little green wonder and he's also a fellow teacher! ) It was my first year teaching at my current school, inheriting my new room. The room came with one fully functioning electric pencil sharpener. The FIRST WEEK of school, a little darling decided he would stick a pencil into the electric sharpener...
eraser. side. first.
That sharpener quickly was no more. I didn't feel like shelling out my entire school budget to purchase a new one. So a year and a half later, I can honestly tell you that I never replaced that thing. The Classroom Friendly sharpener has been my one and only ever since. Simply put, it gets the job done every time.
Some pencils I sharpened today. Still this sharp after a year and a half of regular use!
Teacher Confession: I don't let my kiddos use this sharpener whenever they want. Not because it's too difficult for them, but because ever since the whole eraser side first incident, I have some trust issues when it comes to my sharpener. But sometimes, if someone is REALLY knockin' my socks off, I might grant them the "privilege" of sharpening some pencils for me. They think that's a pretty big deal. Oh to be six & seven years old again, right?!
It's cute, effective, and affordable. That's my kind of school supply.
It comes in five colors: red, blue, green, black, and pretty pink.
