I am so excited to share with you today the newest addition to my classroom...
a hot pink pencil sharpener!
Isn't it beautiful!
And to think, we actually started the year off without a sharpener!
To be honest, I wasn't planning on having one at all this year. Crazy, I know, but I was so frustrated with spending a ton of money every year on a new pencil sharpener that would just get broken a few months into the year. Then there would be a constant battle of fixing it, and then it breaking, then fixing it again, then it breaking again.
So I fully intended to spend the year just having my kids use their own little personal pencil sharpeners (and I wasn't really looking forward to it... I'm sure I'm not the only one who has had students drop them and send pencil shavings everywhere)!
Then I saw the new "Precious Pink" classroom sharpener
from Classroom Friendly Supplies and I emailed Troy right away!
I told my students our new hot pink pencil sharpener was going to be arriving in a week and they were almost as excited as I was! When it arrived they couldn't wait to start using it! And it is very impressive! I love how it is set up so that the students can't keep sharpening and sharpening their pencil. When it is sharp they can tell and the sharpener doesn't just eat away at the pencil!
Also, the pencils are nice and sharp! They last much longer than pencils had in the past with other sharpeners!
My students were SO impressed with how sharp the pencils got, especially since "it's not even electric!" And it's not loud like electric pencil sharpeners either!
They have been so great with using it and I am confident that this sharpener is going to last much longer than our previous ones!
If pink's not your color, they also have the sharpener in green, blue, red, and black! I do have to say though, my students (even my boys!) love the hot pink one! :)
