Tried it Tuesday: The Best Sharpener Ever

Happy Tuesday! I am linking up with  Fourth Grade Flipper for Tried it Tuesday.
Those of you that have been in the blogging world for a while have probably heard of The Quietest Sharpener from Classroom Friendly Supplies. 

I had read a lot about these sharpeners for the last year and decided that I needed to try it out. I went onto the website to check out information about the sharpener and to see how I could go about ordering one. When I was there I was pleasantly surprised. I found a link that had video clips on how to use it, as well as how to fix it when the students get the tip stuck inside! I don't know about you, but that is the number one way my mechanical sharpeners break! I also entered a giveaway to earn one for free, and found that they are looking for guest bloggers to review their product!

I jumped at the chance to receive one for free. I completed the request and was e-mailed later that day asking me which color I would like to try. I then received my sharpener a few days later. As soon as it arrived I opened the package and searched high and low around my house for a pencil to sharpen! Much to my dismay I didn't find one! So over the weekend I decided to take a detour to school to try it out.

This sharpener is as awesome as everyone says it is!  I was on the phone with my mom (telling her all about our camping trip) and decided to try to sharpen a pencil. It was so quiet she didn't realize I was using it!

The sharpener also sharpens really well, much better than the electric sharpeners I currently have in my room. Plus the blue color is really pretty! I recommend trying it out for yourself. I was pleasantly surprised at just how great it is! My students love it too. They kept looking for pencils to sharpen whenever they had a free moment.

Don't forget to enter into my 100 Follower Giveaway. It ends on Friday!

  3. It is the littlest things that are sometimes the best.
    Great three-hole punches are also great. Or a well-weighted tape dispenser.
