Quietest Classroom Pencil Sharpener!!

I have seen SO many of my blogger friends talking about The Quietest Classroom Pencil Sharpener, so I just had to try it out. I ordered the pencil sharpener to see what they were talking about. And let me say, I am in love. I've never seen such a sharp pencil!! 

Let me start by saying that The Quietest Classroom Pencil Sharpener has quickly become the one REWARD in my classroom that students look forward to! We have a behavior clip chart where students work on clipping up to the top. If my students get to orange and red (top two levels), they are allowed to use our new pink pencil sharpener.

They even made up a little quote for using it!
"Pull and pinch." 

They love it! 

So not only do I get the world's sharpest pencils, I also have students working on their best behaviors just so they can sharpen pencils!! Who would have thought!?


  1. I love mine! I have the green one but I'm really wanting a the pink that just came out. Question, do you have trouble keeping yours clamped to the desk? My kids love it, but its hard for them to keep it still because it won't stay clamped down.

  2. Mine won't stay clamped down, either! Super annoying, but I do love everything else about it. But I REALLY love that pink one! :)
