Do your kids have to sharpen pencils at inopportune times? Do they lose their pencils all the time? Do the pencils break or only sharpen on one side? I’ve struggled with all of these and am so happy to share with you a giveaway for a fantastic pencil sharpener and a freebie pencil management plan! (Ok, it did feel weird typing out “pencil management system” – really??! But, isn’t it true that we need one! LOL!)
First, I have a terrific giveaway by Troy at Classroom Friendly Supplies. Troy is a teacher and the owner of Classroom Friendly Supplies which sells the “Quietest Classroom Pencil Sharpener”. I’ve seen reviews of these sharpeners and everyone raves about them. Your can win a pencil sharpener and try it out for yourself! Check out the links to visit the website and see all the pictures of super-sharp and evenly sharpened pencils.
The entry form is at the end of this post. It’s easy to enter – just like 2 pages on facebook!
- Only open to those with a US mailing address
- You must have a facebook account to enter (if you don’t, I post about many other giveaways that don’t involve facebook and I have a monthly giveaway for all followers so there will be something available soon. Be sure to get the freebie linked below!
I also discovered a really neat freebie about a way to manage pencils in your classroom – Winning the Pencil War. It was created by the Wise Owl Teacher. Apparently many others have discovered this since it has been downloaded over 97,000 times! I’ve started working on implementing this system for this year and can’t wait to get started. I love plans that help the kids to become more responsible. It makes it easier for everyone!
