If you’re like me, you hate pencil sharpeners that break the pencil lead. And, if you’re a teacher, you know that it’s always frustrating when a student brings a pencil sharpener to school and it can’t be used because the blade is dull. That’s why I’m excited about the pencil sharpeners from Classroom Friendly Supplies. They have a variety of manual pencil sharpeners that are built to last. Plus, they offer replacement parts in case something does go wrong. So look no further for awesome pencil sharpeners from Classroom Friendly Supplies!
There is nothing worse than being interrupted in your classroom by the annoying sound of a pencil sharpener. It brings your lesson to a screeching halt. I am an elementary school teacher and the owner of Classroom Friendly Supplies. I started selling these quiet and efficient sharpeners after realizing that many fellow teachers were also struggling with the same problems as I was having.
Over the past 17 years, I have sold to thousands of teachers. There are now over 2,500 school districts across the US that have decided to purchase Classroom Friendly Pencil Sharpeners. That includes over 50,000 teachers that have switched to our sharpeners. As you can see, word has spread quickly.
This pencil sharpener has a retro look and it is quiet. It sharpens the pencil without any interruptions in class. The automatic stopping prevents over-sharpening. It also works on standard-sized pencils. The clear plastic disposal tray makes it easy to clean.
I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the lookout for ways to make life less stressful and hectic. This includes the small but important matter of having a sharp pencil on hand. I know a lot of people enjoy using a mechanical pencil, but I still prefer to use an old-fashioned one. I call it old-fashioned but I know plenty of people and fellow teachers who’ve never given them up! The only true downside is keeping a sharpener nearby in order to keep that nice pointed lead. So that’s where these awesome pencil sharpeners from Classroom Friendly Supplies step up for the job!
So who benefits from one of these manual pencil sharpeners? Anyone who uses a pencil of course! Whether you use them at work, your child uses them at school or even colored pencils for coloring and art projects. I know what you’re thinking. Why not use an electric sharpener?
Well I personally have a few reasons why I don’t use an electric pencil sharpener. First, in order to use them, you have to be somewhere with electricity! So if we’re in the car or traveling or somewhere outside of our usual work space, we can’t sharpen a pencil! Secondly, they tend to be fairly loud and disruptive. This is a problem both in the classroom as well as the office. And lastly, electric sharpeners tend to waste a lot of the pencil with over sharpening which leads to breakage.
There are a few features of a manual pencil sharpener from Classroom Friendly Supplies that make it a great purchase.
- Quiet to operate which means fewer interruptions
- Manually powered, no electricity required
- Can be permanently mounted or remain portable
- An automatic stopping point so the pencil isn’t over sharpened
- Great for #2 pencils, colored pencils, and more
- A fun “retro” look with a variety of colors
- Replacement parts available
- Easy to use even for young children
Another thing I love about these manual pencil sharpeners is they are easy to clean. Simply slide out the clear plastic bin on the front, dump the shavings, and replace the bin back into the unit. And that’s it!
For teachers or those who are looking for gift ideas for a classroom, you can purchase these as a single sharpener or sold in bundles for a lower overall price. I like the idea of having more than one, even for myself. I can keep one at my desk, one for the kids’ homework station, and even one in our art supply area. No more borrowing and not returning it to the proper place. And they aren’t the flimsy, tiny ones that get lost constantly. It would be great in a classroom mounted into place so it doesn’t go home accidentally with a student.
If you need to have it secured, then you can use the Permanent Sharpener Mount. It includes the pre-drilled plate and the 4 screws required for installation. You can still remove the pencil sharpener while leaving the mount in place. This is a great option for a table or the side of a bookcase. Wherever it won’t cause a distraction when students or employees need to sharpen their pencils.
Also, with every pencil sharpener that is sold, one dollar is donated to the Pencils of Promise charity. This charity helps to build schools in developing countries around the globe. So not only are you getting a top-quality product, but you’re also helping others in the process.
I think these pencil sharpeners from Classroom Friendly Supplies are a fantastic addition to any pencil-using arsenal. One of my favorite things has to be the wide range of color choices! I know it might be silly, but who doesn’t love adding a little color to their day? It doesn’t impact the performance of course but it definitely can bring a smile to my face.
Whether you’re looking for a fantastic manual pencil sharpener for home, for work, or the classroom, you’ll find plenty to choose from with Classroom Friendly Supplies. You can buy them individually or in one of several bulk package options. And they are available in a lot of fun and exciting colors to brighten up any space.
