I'm excited to be back to share a secret with you... I'm in LOVE!
With a sharpener that is. ;)
Can you even believe this beauty:
So, if you know me, I love all things PURPLE. Did you know that my favorite sharpener from Classroom Friendly Supplies
now has a PURPLE sharpener??
Yes they do and I LOVE it!!
I this is my second sharpener from this company and it is by far the best sharpener out there. I even wrote another review back in 2013 and you can see it here.
Why is it so great you ask?
Well first, it is designed and made by a teacher. I love to support teachers.
Second, it sharpens like you have never ever seen a pencil sharpener sharpen. Like Ever.
Third, it is very quite- unlike my electric sharpener.
Fourth, they are extremely affordable. (and make great gifts!)
Fifth, they come in super cute colors!!
(like: blue, red, green, black and now PURPLE!)
Sixth, it is super easy to use! Even the kids can do it!
Take a look here:
It comes very nicely packaged and even comes with a clamp to hold it in place if you prefer that.
I decided to try out those dollar store pencils- you know the kind.. the ones that usually come out in shreds after sharpened.
Just pull it open and it will lock in an outward position.
Then hold the clamps together, this will create an opening for your pencil and hold the pencil in place.
As you sharpen by turning the crank, the pencil will move and then you will feel when the pencil is done- no over sharpening!
Just release the clamp and pull out the pencil. My heart goes pitter patter every time I see a pencil come out... just look at that tip! AND no crazy wrapper mess from those dollar pencils- just a perfect sharpen every time.
I even had my seven year old try it out. His response- this is easy!
Hahaha... this was his look when he pulled the pencil out. I think he even said... "holy cow."
Say NO to broken, unsharpened pencils that leave you unhappy.
Ahhh that's better!
Look no further... this sharpener is super duper great. I promise.

I'd love to hear if you have one in your classroom!
Thanks for reading and have a fabulous Monday!
