Hiya there peeps
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
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
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 kept eating the darn pencils!
In the words of Sweet Brown
I couldn't resist!
