Pencil Sharpener and Fan-ta-bu-lous Freebies

Hiya there peeps

Shuna here

Let's get right down to business

I have a lot to share

I recently came across this video on FB

Oh my word

This is so true

Its sad to say but true nevertheless

Watch and you will see

Is Education really Educating our students?

The sad answer is no

We are teaching them how to take a test but not much else after that

Where is the creativity, the enthusiam, the love of school

It kills me to hear 2nd grade students say how much they hate school

They are just starting out and they have a long way to go

Okay stepping down off that soapbox

In 5..4..3..!


I received one of those lovely little pencil sharpeners

I received the pencil sharpener in December I believe and I wanted to test it out a few months in my class before I posted my review!

I will say all the hype you have heard about is 

is well...

worth it!

This thing is stinking amazing


I have been teaching 4 years and I have had to replaced pencil sharpeners Every.Single.YEAR.!

Last year I had to buy 3 new ones before the year was over

I think it is safe to say that I detest pencil sharpeners!

So when this thingy arrived in the mail I had my reservations

You know when someone has hyped up something so much

it rarely lives up to the hype

That is how I felt about the pencil sharpener 

that is until I used it!

Take a look at my pencil sharpener journey

Oh, yes peeps there is a journey

So the real question is does it work

It worked wonders

The Blue Grace

That is what I named her

Sharpened that pencil like a pro

In 2 point 5 seconds that thing was done

Now for the other nameless sharpener

It worked


it kept eating the darn pencils!

In the words of Sweet Brown

I couldn't resist!

Anyhoo here are some more close up shots of

  4. Friend, you are loaded with freebies!!!! I'm going to load up on ink tomorrow :)

  5. Thanks for the fun song (Now I will have it in my head all night) and the free goodies, also the heads up on that awesome sharpener. I need that, I always bring home my busted sharpener for my hubby to fix and when he sees it he sighs and we play a fun game of, "What is stuck inside the sharpener!?"
    (PS how do you get that pin it button so nicely at the bottom of your post? I am afraid of html, but want one on my blog!)
