The Most AMAZING Pencil Sharpener, Chevron Freebie, & Giveaway Winners!

The Most AMAZING Pencil Sharpener!

Oh my!  I have so much to tell you {again!!!}  You may remember the time I mentioned that my electric pencil sharpener broke?  And I couldn't use my classroom sharpener because all it did was eat pencils?

So I asked my trusty blogger friends about the best kind of pencil sharpener to get.  They told me the Classroom Friendly Supplies sharpener was the best!!  And then do you know what?!  I won one!!!!!  Julie over at First Grade Critter Cafe had a giveaway and I won!  Just so you know, I never win!  Like ever!  I think it was meant to be! :)   

Today I'm going to tell you about the sharpener because it is seriously amazing!  My trusty blogger friends weren't lying when they said it was the best!

Here's why it's totally awesome!  

1. First of all it comes in lots of neat colors.  Mine is green!  I love the retro look of it too!

2. It's quiet!  {Before my old sharpeners broke, I had a rule: No sharpening pencils while I was teaching or taking groups....crazy huh?  But I couldn't hear over them!  I can definitely get rid of that rule now!}

3. It's SO easy to use!

4. It has little grippers to hold the pencil while you're sharpening it, so it doesn't wiggle around.  {on my old crank sharpener, I used to get blisters from sharpening!}

5.  It's the best!  Trust me!  I'll be buying a second one for my classroom!!!  {one for the whole class, one for my centers!}

Here's how it works!  First you squeeze the little back buttons up top and put the pencil in.

Crank it and VIOLA!!!!!!!!!!

You have a perfectly sharpened pencil!!!!!

If you don't have one of these, you NEED to get one!  It's a classroom necessity!!!!
