So, if you are like me and you are a blog stalker and/or you spend more time on Pinterest than on cleaning, you have seen/heard about The Quietest Classroom Pencil Sharpener from Classroom Friendly Supplies. I wondered what made this sharpener so great. I know everybody has those old-school pencil grinders sharpeners that chew a new pencil up until it is a sad stump the maintenance guy says have "brand new blades and it should work like new? After spending a small fortune each year to buy electric sharpeners, I hovered around my $50 sharpener to make sure that NOBODY put their COLORED PENCILS or *shudder* those plastic-wrapped pretty pencils into it to ruin it. That is, until I finally tried The Quietest Class Pencil Sharpener. I had one shipped to me and it arrived very quickly. It comes with a clamp that you can use to attach it to a table or shelf, but I had to see how it worked without that, since it claimed to work fine that way. Well, hold on to your hats and glasses, because this sharpener does everything it claims to do! In fact, it knocked my socks off, or it would have if I didn't have shoes on! It sharpens easily and quickly. The point is VERY sharp and pointy. I had never seen a pencil that sharp! My fabulous Mama also ordered me two more of these babies, so my blue sharpener would have some company. So, the true test was if my little Firsties could use this on their own. Was it quiet? Yes. Would I settle for it being noisy if only my kids could sharpen their pencils? Yes! But, I didn't have to settle. It worked great and the kids LOVE it. In fact, they started to fight over sharpening pencils....They broke pencils ON PURPOSE just to get a chance to use the sharpener. So, I decided that whoever got their math warm-ups done first could sharpen pencils. Woo-hoo! You would have thought that I promised them money or candy, because there was a stampede of kids finishing warm-ups in record time. Now, it is a "Friday Surprise" choice, by popular demand! The kids can sharpen their pencils quietly and independently. Need proof? Check out one of my happy Firsties! This is his first time getting his hands on the sharpener and he is SO excited!

Isn't he adorable?!? Also, sharpening it was easy-peasy! Check out my other buddy who couldn't even wait to get his backpack off before getting his math warm-up done so he could sharpen the pencils. He LOVES the sharp point! LOL!


Have a great week!
