My good ol' electric sharpener made it through the end of the school year. By June it was only sharpening about 5 at a time before the motor would tire out and shut down (sounds like most teachers in June!). My pal Laura at Love to Teach told me about the Classroom Friendly Sharpener. Intrigued, I went on and placed my order that night! A few days later it came in the mail and I excitedly ripped open the box and unwrapped my new, shiny tool!
And by golly it did exactly what it advertised! It sharpened these suckers with no hassle and boy are those tips pointy. I cannot wait to bring it into the classroom in September and see if withstands to 15 K-1's!
