Amazing Pencil Sharpener

I am so glad to have been allowed this opportunity to try out this awesome pencil sharpener by classroom friendly supplies!

I absolutely love my pink one for my regular sized pencils! But being a Kindergarten teacher, I have some students who need the fatter pencils. I needed a sharpener that was going to sharpen these larger pencils quickly and with a nice strong point. Well, I found it!!!!
This is the pencil sharpener by classroom friendly supplies!

 It is amazing! With just a few turns of the handle, my fat pencils have a point that lasts all day! 

The great thing is this sharpener does not eat the pencil!  Therefore, the pencils last longer.

I love how it holds the pencil for you!

So if you are looking for a quality,  quiet,  pencil saving, long lasting point making pencil sharpener look no further! This is the one for you! I would recommend this to every teacher out there!
