Was I ever beyond excited when Troy from Classroom Friendly Supplies sent me this little beauty to use and review:
I love the retro look and color of the sharpener. What is most impressive is that it is portable! You can mount it (hardware is included) or just place on a desk or table. This is a great feature for me as I travel to different classrooms and can now take my sharpener with me!
The day I received this, I took it outside on the picnic table to try it out. At once, it caught the attention of my sons, the neighborhood kids, and my husband. We had fun experimenting with different pencils!
Why would I recommend this sharpener to other teachers?
- It is made from a sturdy metal frame
- It automatically stops sharpening to produce a perfect point. No more pencils will be eaten and ruined!
- Easy for small children to use. My five and six year old sons had no problems!
- It is so very quiet! This is huge with me and one reason why I do not like electric sharpeners.
- Has a plastic tray to easily dispose of pencil shavings
- Portable! I just love this feature!I can place it where ever it is needed in the classroom.
