Tried it Tuesday: Quiet Classroom Pencil Sharpener.. Where Have You Been All My Life?

So.. there is this pencil sharpener that many... many..... many of my bloggy buddies have been raving about all over the internet.  I'm a middle school teacher... and a MATH teacher at that.. I mangle  destroy, obliterate at least 4-5 pencil sharpeners a year.  With 90 kids sharpening pencils and colored pencils almost every day.. I could build a sculpture with pencil shavings.  I'll be honest.. I wasn't sure, but my friend Gina at Beach Sand and Lesson Plans convinced me this summer I needed to try this new one.

Please people... LISTEN TO YOUR TEACHER FRIENDS when they tell you how awesome this sharpener is.. LISTEN TO THEM!  This little piece of technology is really amazing!  Who would have thought that someone could be so excited about a pencil sharpener!  I know as a middle school teacher we are sometimes viewed as being weird, and we do get excited and still giggle at inappropriate times, but really, this sharpener was SUPER COOL!

Check out this video:

I showed this video to my students when we first opened the package, and now EVERYONE wants to sharpen their pencils.  Regular pencils, pencils found in the hallway, pencils from other teachers...It is so funny!  I won't have to worry about finding my students without pencils for a LONG time!

If you don't have one of these already, head over to Classroom Friendly Supplies and check them out.  Be sure to check back here next week because I'll be hosting a sharpener giveaway too! 

Stop by and visit Holly too at Fourth Grade Flippers and check out all of the new things people have been trying for Tried it Tuesday!


  1. I got one too this year & LOVE IT!!! Be careful sharpening colored pencils. I've had lead break off & get stuck in mine twice. My hubby fixed it quickly, but still a pain :0(

  2. My pod bestie has one of these and loves it. I really need to invest in one!

  3. Isn't it just AWESOME?!? My teammates often come in my room to "borrow" mine. I think I may just have to get them one each for Christmas. :) Thanks for linking up!
