Something had to be done!
I devised a system whereby I sharpened everything before class, wrapped each pencil in velcro and attached to the student's desk. Presto, no more problem with the loss of pencils and the constant pencil sharpening because I sharpened at least two of the pencils and more for the kids daily.
BUT, I didn't know the REAL secret solution to "the pencil problem!" Finally one day, I happened to see one of my dear colleague's supply list which stated specifically TICONDEROGA pencils ONLY! "TICONDEROGA?" I asked, "They are the only ones I accept." responded my friend.
"Ah ha!" I thought, I found the answer to my problems!
And, honestly, that is how I learned that TICONDEROGA pencils DON'T break and cause a lot of less problems in the classroom. So from then on I went with TICONDEROGA every year and would not allow any other pencils in my classroom. The velcro trick wasn't necessary anymore because the pencils were of great quality and lasted.
I taught all grades in elementary school with these wonderful pencils.
Little Pencil Finds His Forever Friends: A Rhyming Pencil Grip Picture Book (Early Childhood Series) (Volume 1)
My son has broken the tip of these pencils only a couple times.
The larger grip helps him form his letters more correctly, which helps, but doesn't solve, his messy handwriting.
The initial cost is more than buying other brands of pencils but in the long run it has been less expensive for us because we are not buying dozens of pencils every week.
My son is still able to rip off the eraser and the metal band which holds the eraser but I'm sure there isn't a pencil around that could prevent that from happening.
I recommend the Ticonderoga brand to everyone and the larger Primary size to anyone who needs better control with forming their letters more neatly.
-Can be used on standardized tests, both for bubble-filling and for scratch paper (at least for GRE/GMAT/LSAT/MCAT)
-Large size is easier to hold, meaning reduced cramps from long periods of use
-Eraser is about twice the size of a standard #2 pencil
-Round shape has fewer stress points than the hexagonal pencils, so writing for a long time doesn't cause pain from pressure
-Because lead is larger, and I prefer to use a very sharp pencil, there is more wasted lead
-Might not fit in some standard sharpeners
I do love mechanical pencils, but if you have to have a #2, this is definitely the way to go!
We use them for marking the date on goose eggs we have for sale, and they are ideal for that purpose. They're also well-suited for the more mundane every-day pencil tasks.
Worth every penny - you'll like 'em.
Carpal Tunnel syndrome in both hands and it is hard sometimes to grasp regular pencils. I know it sounds stupid, but these work for me. Also, they are great for marking lumber.........easier than a carpenter's pencil.
