Get Back To School Ready With A Classroom Friendly Pencil Sharpener Giveaway {A #SchoolDays2018 Giveaway Hop Event}

Welcome to the School Days Giveaway Hop hosted by Savings in Seconds .

The school year has just begun (or is starting very soon), are you ready?

When we do our back to school shopping, many of us stick just to the list of what that need AT school, but for many, school means HOMEWORK. And so, not only do we have to prepare them for what they need at school, but at home for that as well. Today I'm sharing my favorite must haves for homework help:

  • Extra Pencils. We always try to keep a pencil in my son's backpack, just in case. But the reality is, those always manage to get lost. So, we try to keep an extra pack of pencils at home, easily accessible and read to use.
  • A Timer. Something that we have found to be helpful for my son is to use a timer. Set it for however long you feel is a reasonable time to get the work done or your child to work. When the timer goes off, take a break and come back to it later. We have found this keeps him from getting too overwhelmed.
  • An Agenda. This is really more for the older grades, but can still benefit anyone who needs lists to stay organized. When I was in junior high/high school, my agenda was my lifesaver. I wrote down each subject, and as work was assigned, I'd write it down. As completed, I'd check it off. At the end of the day I knew at a glance just what homework I had and kept me from missing any!
  • A GOOD Pencil Sharpener. I cannot tell you how many homework sessions have been completely destroyed by broken pencils and bad sharpeners! We try to keep that frustration at bay by having a GOOD pencil sharpener at home, just for homework.

And for that we trust Classroom Friendly Supplies. You can read my recent review about what makes them so ideal here.
