am continuously in the process of collecting supplies for my classroom. The
other day I snagged a 10 drawer cart from Sam’s for $24!!!! But, a few weeks
ago, I got an even better deal. Classroom Friendly Supplies offered to send me one of
those oh-so-cool-and-quiet-and-excellent pencil sharpeners for FREE in return
for an honest review. So, after a few weeks of using it, let me introduce you
to Leo the Pencil Sharpener! (Please excuse his open mouth…he’s terribly embarrassed) (Why did I name him? Well,
I name most things in my life…my
bell-pepper plant was Mascato, my lily is Charlotte, my GPS is Olivia, etc.)

pencil remains (not sure what to call these), empty the container into the
trash can, and return the collector.
9 verbs of pencil sharpening! You may ask – Is it the quietest pencil sharpener
ever? And I would answer….I am not so
sure. It definitely is quieter than any electric sharpener that I have heard,
but it still generates noise. I mean, I
wouldn’t be willing to put in near my guided reading table. Granted – I cannot
remember a pencil sharpener that was quieter, though, so am I really just not
sure. So, there…a not-really answer to
your question. 🙂
