I never thought there could truly be such a thing as a QUIET pencil sharpener. So when I saw this one floating around blogging world, I just had to have it! Troy from Classroom Friendly Supplies sent me this green pencil sharpener.
I thought I was in-love with the Gripcase...but I am REALLY in-love with this machine! Not only is it so very quiet, it is just the right size. I have mine mounted on a bookshelf.
Another plus to this sharpener, is it's skill to sharpener.
This is the before pencil....
This is the after pencil...Look at that point! What teacher doesn't love a great point?
Another great benefit is my students can use it. No more worrying about replacing the expensive electric sharpeners they somehow always seem to break. I never understand how, but they always do. I guess it's a kid thing. =)
See, I am actually letting my students have at it!
I love that it doesn't allow for the kids to push the pencil too far in and the noise and feel changes when the pencil is sharpened.
