At the start of our home school career when I was teaching my first child kindergarten, I realized we needed to upgrade from a simple manual pencil sharpener. This was a huge improvement to our homeschool day. Fast forward 3 kids, the oldest in 9th grade, when our trusty pencil sharpener finally died. I tried other brands, but they were a waste of money and were returned. And so, new for 2015 is the newer, shinier, sleek black pencil sharpener. May we have many more years together.
(Pssst...if you are looking for a solid, long-lasting electric pencil sharpener, I recommend the X-acto brand pictured in this post. It was about $20 on Amazon).
