Amazing Pencil Sharpener Review!

Troy at Classroom Friendly Supplies was kind enough to send me one of these AMAZING pencil sharpeners to review, and my students and I could not be more pleased!

I wish I had taken video on Friday at school, the students in my SLC class were having so much fun that when I walked back over, they had sharpened over 20 pencils!! They even offered to be my "official pencil sharpeners." Who would have thought that middle schoolers would volunteer to sharpen pencils?

Here it is!

Meet your new best friend :)

This amazing little machine runs for $24.99 and is well worth the price. It gets the pencils so sharp, and the clamp prevents students from jamming pencils into it!

Also, this machine is incredibly quiet, and it's portable. Students who are "official pencil sharpeners" can clamp it to their desk and sharpen away if they want. 

To use:

  1. Use the included clamp to secure it to any surface.
  2. Pull the metal area on the front out.
  3. Press the lever on the top and slide the pencil in.
  4. Crank away, you will know when it's done.
  5. Press the lever on top again to take your pencil out.
  6. Enjoy! :)

I made a little video to show you the machine in action!

 Thank you again to Troy for giving me the opportunity to review this awesome product and share with all of you. :)

Before the School Year Begins...

I decided that before I can start posting about what I'm doing this year, I needed to share some of my favorite strategies from last year that went really well with the students. I was completely inspired by Kelly Gallagher after reading devouring all of his books at the beginning of the school year! I had the opportunity to go to a Kelly Gallagher workshop at Judson this spring, and it was absolutely amazing! He was so nice when I went up to him (I was terrified and starstruck), and even wrote "You're Welcome" on this piece of paper, because my students actually asked me to THANK HIM for changing the way we read novels in class.  Students + asked me + to say thank you to an author + about school stuff = UTOPIA! Here are some of my abbreviated notes from the day: His TOP Points: Kids should write 4X more than you can physically grade  Students suffer from word poverty. Must get students reading more in order to be exposed to vocabulary. We ne

Another Pinterest crafting project!

Look what I got!!! :) I will be creating this in the next few days  hours, and hopefully it will turn out as nice as the other ones I've seen online! Inspiration: Down the Learning Road It's not exactly the same, but I wanted one that was wider rather than tall. I got the organizer at Home Depot for $16.97! I'm thinking I'll mod podge it instead of paint it, but we'll see! What projects are you working on today?
