The Best Pencil Sharpener is PURPLE!

Many of you have heard of The Best Pencil Sharpener by Classroom Friendly Supplies. I have had a blue one that I love for a few years. It still works just as well as when I received it back in 2013. You can read my original review here.

I was recently given the opportunity to get a sneak peak at the newest sharpener, Popular Purple.

This sharpener is a fabulous purple color. When I brought it in and set it up my students were begging to try it, but I told them I had to try it first. (I am a meany, I know.)

 I absolutely love the purple color. The pictures really don't do it justice. The sharpener is as quiet as ever, and makes the pencils super sharp.
I have three sharpeners in my classroom, one electric (that came with the room from the previous teacher) and now two of these sharpeners. My students NEVER use the electric. They actually wait in line in the morning to use one of these sharpeners. I highly recommend getting one for your classroom, you won't regret it.

A New Season and a Freebie

It has been way too long since I have blogged. I am so sorry. Lots of changes have happened since I last blogged. My daughter had her first birthday and has gotten way too big. She is totally a toddler now, and keeps me on my toes!

I am back in the classroom, teaching third grade this year. It has been quite an adjustment getting used to being mom and teacher, but we are starting to get into a good rhythm, so I am excited to be back blogging again.

Being in a new grade, means creating new things. I made a small QR code task card set to help my third graders practice identifying the four types of sentences. You can grab it for free here.
