Win a Classroom Friendly Sharpener!

quiet_sharp1210 (1)
Troy has graciously offered to let us host a give-way for a Classroom Friendly Pencil Sharpener for the Comrade who wins a contest . There are only a few rules:

1) Comrades must “like” Classroom Friendly Supplies on Facebook (this will be verified).

2) Contest is only open to residents of the United States, or, rather, people who get mail here (no international shipping).

3) Please respond within one week to the post announcing the winner, or we’ll pick another winner.

4) Please remember to let Troy know which color you prefer! (Black, blue, red, green.)

The contest!

TO ENTER!========>We are looking for great pencil-related quotations. Please leave your pencil-related quotation (and source if you know it; or make up a memorable one!) in a comment to this post, and head on over to “like” Classroom Friendly Supplies. (Only comments with a pencil quotation will be entered into the drawing.) One entry per Comrade.

The contest will close on Friday, May 3rd, at 5:00pm Eastern Standard Time. We will randomly select a winner over the weekend though paper entries in a hat (you’ll have to trust the randomness, but I’ll get a 3-year who is impartial to pull the winner). The winner will be posted on Monday, May 6th on this site.

I expect that we’ll get some very cool entries, and we’ll post some of the best on the site in the coming weeks.

Happy quotation hunting!

  1. I received an extra classroom-friendly pencil sharpener and told my students that I would be donating it to another teacher and all at once they shouted, “Mrs. B! She needs one bad!”

    I would love to have a black pencil sharpener.

  2. This sharpener is great! We have tried several electric but this one sharpens every time, without a lot of noise. I would love a red one for my own desk.

  3. “Our pencil sharpener has a bad attitude! It just ate my pencil!” commented one frustrated 4th grader. It really is a pain. I hope I win this giveaway, because my kids have been driving me crazy with their pencil sharpening this year. I have 2 boys that are obsessed with a sharp point!! I’d love a black one.

  4. I just accepted my first teaching position which will start in August and I would be thrilled to start the year off with a fabulous blue classroom friendly pencil sharpener!

    My favorite joke (which is like a quotation, right?) but I’m not sure of the original source!
    “Why was the pencil in the toilet?”
    “It was a number 2.” :)

  5. “Map out your future – but do it in pencil. The road ahead is as long as you make it. Make it worth the trip.” — Jon Bon Jovi

  6. “The average pencil is seven inches long, with just a half-inch eraser – in case you thought optimism was dead.” Robert Brault

  7. “Lying in bed would be an altogether perfect and supreme experience if only one had a coloured pencil long enough to draw on the ceiling.” – G.K. Chesterton

    A blue sharpener would be my choice; thank you, John and Troy, for the opportunity!

  8. You can lead a horse to water, but a pencil must be led.
    Stan Laurel

    I would love a blue one for my classroom!!

  9. Life without _________ (insert anything important to you) is like a pencil with erasers at both ends. There’s just no point!

    red, please :)

  10. “I am a little pencil in the hands of a writing God, who is sending a love letter to the world. ” Mother Teresa

    (Oh! Red!)

  11. My grandchildren and I we like very sharp points!
    I prefer to write with a very sharp pencil my Chinese Characters.
    We hope you can give us a red one because red is a lucky color ;-)

  12. I would love the retro green.

    A #2 pencil and a dream can take you anywhere

    I so need to win to show them the greatness. I am trying to get the primary teachers to purchase so we can get the bulk price they just are not sure.

    1. where’s the eraser on my computer screen? =) red would be our choice–glad to exemplify the quotation ;-)

  13. I believe more in the scissors than I do in the pencil..
    ~ Truman Capote

    (But I *do* love pencils…and the BLACK sharpener is snappy!)

    Thank you!

  14. What ever happened to pencil number one?
    It wasn’t as sharp as number two!

    **would love a red sharpener!**

  15. I wrote this on the first page of my sketchbook a few months ago:
    “Reminder: Always bring a pencil sharpener… as a dull pencil is a drag on a sharp drawing.”
    –me

    (I dig the green one!)

  16. If only people could be sharpened as easily as a pencil, so many people are so very dull.

    I wrote this just for you.

    My daughter like the green one best.
    Thanks

  17. I’d love a red sharpener. This is my quote about pencils:

    In spite of everything I shall rise again: I will take up my pencil, which I have forsaken in my great discouragement, and I will go on with my drawing.
    Vincent Van Gogh

    I’m less herger on facebook and liked the classroom friendly supplies page. :)

  18. “Don’t you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.” – You’ve Got Mail

    (If I win, a blue one would be lovely. Thanks!)

  19. “Lying in bed would be an altogether perfect and supreme experience if only one had a colored pencil long enough to draw on the ceiling.”
