    mechanical pencils
    By Carolyn

    I got some mechanical pencils, too, for my fifth graders. I thought that would be the end of the pencil sharpening dilemma. Unfortunately, they fiddled with the lead. I think they also broke the delicate lead too easily, so had to click often. They also seemed to run out of lead very quickly. I guess it depends upon your individual class as to whether or not using mechanical pencils would work for you. As for me, I will just have the kids use regular pencils and a small hand-held sharpener.
