Have You Seen This Pencil Sharpener?

I have always considered myself an “electric sharpener” kinda gal. I had a hate – hate relationship with the super, noisy, wall-mounted pencil sharpener in my classroom. All it would do is sharpen pencils on one side and grind pencils down to little stubs in nothing flat! I finally gave up years ago and bought a rather expensive electric one. Unfortunately because it’s expensive, I am very reluctant to have little helpers assist me with sharpening pencils and that just added one more job to my ever-growing list of things that needed to be done in my classroom. I finally came across this sharpener from Classroom Friendly Supplies. Wow…I can’t believe how much better this works than the electric sharpener!

 
It's quiet, easy to use, fast and makes our pencils SUPER SHARP!

My students love this thing...they are thoroughly impressed with how incredibly sharp it gets a pencil. I LOVE that it's so quiet and I no longer have to do the sharpening. And it knows when a pencil is sharp, so pencils are no longer ground down to a stub in a single sharpening.

I'm torn between the President's Day Literacy pack and the St. Patrick's Day math and literacy pack. I just teach reading, so I think I'd prefer the first.
