I know it's been a little while since I've posted, but I'm here to tell y'all real quick about this sharpener I received! I'm sure you all have heard of it, but it's called The Quietest Classroom Pencil Sharpener by Classroom Friendly Supplies. I received the green one, as well!
This pencil sharpener is great. While it takes a little while to crank it versus an automatic sharpener, it does make one of the SHARPEST pencils I've ever seen.
The downside to this... my students poking themselves!
Regardless, it sharpens well. I did have trouble, though, figuring out how to use it at first. Once you figure it out, though, it becomes easier.
-Easy for students to use
-Small and compact enough to fit anywhere in the room
-Cannot figure out the anchor to anchor it to a desk (no directions) - therefore, I have to hold it with one hand and crank with another
-Takes quite a while to sharpen pencils (especially a lot of pencils)
-Learning curve to use it (for those not so mechanically inclined...)
Otherwise, I think it's a great sharpener and it's worth the investment... just be prepared & warned on the length of time you may be sharpening pencils!
Have a good day, y'all!
