If you recall, last school year, I shared with you about a GREAT pencil sharpener, that Miss Grace shared with her classroom, the Classroom Friendly Supplies Pencil Sharpener.
That sharpener not only was a hit, but it survived the school year and is still going strong in the teacher's classroom.
When I shared with you last year, there were 4 colors to choose from, as well as a special Pink Breast Cancer Awareness model. This year I'm thrilled to share with you a NEW color that is available, what they like to call Purple, but we like to call LSU purple:
Pretty isn't it?
Miss Grace instantly declared that we needed to add an LSU tiger eye decal to it on the side, so it would be totally decked out for Football season. yes, she's a proud SEC Southern girl! LOL
As you can see you get not only the sharpener when you order, but a clamp, to secure the sharpener to your desk, table or counter. A permament mount is also available, if you wish to screw it into a more stable mount, that will NOT be moved.
It has an old-school retro look, as you can see. And as you can see above, it has an old fashioned blade that just flat out WORKS perfectly every time! You can also buy replacement blades, something you might not be able to do for pricier models from other companies!
The sharpener works on STANDARD sized pencils, and we have found that it works best on pencils without extra coatings on them-so the 'smelly' pencils may not work well in it.But your traditional pack of 10/20 #2 pencils will work just fine!
Miss Grace's classmates all quickly learned how to use the sharpener last year, and I'm thrilled that the excellent design has remained the same, with this new model.
It is so easy to use, as you can see- the sharpener is 'locked', until you press the top buttons together to open the sharpener. Then you put your pencil in, release the tabs and sharpen. The sharpener has an automatic stopping feature, once the perfect point is formed, to prevent over-sharpening. That was something that the teacher LOVED last year, as it made the pencil sharpening line go VERY quickly! It's easy to pull the tray out and dump the shavings, no taking apart of the sharpener is needed. Yeah! Plus as the sharpener is uber quiet, its use during class instruction helps to eliminates noise interruptions. Which made it a very big hit last year! It's also a great sharpener to have at home, especially if you home school!
When you purchase a Classroom Friendly Supplies Pencil Sharpener, you are helping another class in need! $1 from each sale goes to the Pencils of Promise program. PLUS, for each Precious Pink Pencil Sharpener that you purchase, they donate a portion of sales to cancer research and awareness, via Caleb's Crusade and Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Isn't that a great thing?
Christmas is not too far away, and this sharpener makes a superb teacher's gift- after all they can only have so many Best Teacher ornaments, cups,, bath sets and bags! This is a gift that makes THEIR life easier, and is great for their classroom (as teacher's have to buy so many items themselves nowadays as it is). the sharpener comes in blue, red, black and green, as well as this lovely purple, so you can match your school colors too! Plus, the more you order, the bigger discount you receive, so you can get one for all the teacher's on your holiday lists this year!
So head on over to Classroom Friendly Supplies today and pick up one of these great sharpeners today!
