Classroom Friendly Supplies - Pencil Sharpener Review


First of all... look how cute this pencil sharpener is from Classroom Friendly Supplies! I love it! It makes a great addition to our homeschool supplies!



Our family was given the opportunity to review "The sharpener that all the teachers are talking about!". I am so happy we were. As a homeschool family we are always on the lookout for ways to make our school day flow more smoothly. If you have ever taught a child you would know that they break their pencil lead a ton throughout the school day. Before using this pencil sharpener we had an automatic one that we would use. We would have to pull it out, plug it in, use it... then put it back up. I know that might not seem like a burden to some but when your child breaks his pencil lead three or four times everyday... it can become very stressful to deal with. UNTIL NOW!

Classroom Friendly Pencil Sharpener was created by an elementary school teacher who started selling these amazing sharpeners after seeing how well they worked in their own classroom. Now to tell you what I love about the sharpener.... it's lightweight.. which is great when my boys both want to move it from one desk to the other. It's also easy to attach to a desk without leaving a place when removed. What I truly love about this sharpener is the way it holds the pencils in place while you are using it. If you look at the pictures I posted of the sharpener you will see those two black square pieces on the top of it. You push those together and the teeth open up inside the sharpener for you to put your pencil in. When you let go it holds your pencil in place so you can just sharpen. Also, the little tray that catches all the pencil shavings is easy to open and unload. Plus... the sharpener works wonderfully... always a perfect sharpen! 

My two sons (ages 11 and 10) both love using this pencil sharpener and I love that it's easy for them to use!




I highly recommend Classroom Friendly Pencil Sharpeners to homeschool families, schools, churches... or just at home for your own personal use. You will be glad you have it!

What We're Reading In August 2017





Family Read Aloud:

We will finish up, Boyhood and Beyond, that we started last month. We will also be reading, Lincoln - A Photobiography, written by: Russell Freedman and The Lincoln Memorial, written by: Mary Firestone. Both of these books go along with our Civics lessons for the month.



  


What I'm Reading:

I will be continuing my Bible study, Lazarus Awakening, that I started in July. I will also be enjoying, You Can Do This by: Tricia Lott Williford. I was given this book for a review and I can't wait to begin reading it. "It's time to agree with God about who he says you are.." The author, Tricia, shares stories and strategies to help inspire woman to develop the confidence to stand firm in the face of the blows, losses and disappointments in life. 






Aidan (11 years old):

For August.. we went with Aidan's book choice. He will be reading, The Bronze Bow, written by: Elizabeth George Speare. This summer we were looking for new books to add to his school list and he came across this one. The Bronze Bow is about a boy named Daniel. He witnesses his father's crucifixion by Roman soldiers. Daniel yearns for vengeance..... In a nearby Capernaum, Jesus of Nazareth is teaching a different lesson. How will Daniel's story unfold....   





Noah (10 years old):

This month is Noah's book choice! He will be reading, Diary Of A Wimpy Kid - Double Down and Diary Of A Wimpy Kid - Cabin Fever... he's been wanting to read these two books to be caught up with the Diary Of A Wimpy Kid collection. 





What will you be reading this month?
