Really, I thought, could #2 pencils be all that different? YES, yes they are!
I've been buying the cheap pencils--officeWorks, but the lead seemed to break easily, even when sharpening in an electric sharpener. My kids complained about the eraser, too, and that also would just break off.
What is a good home school mom to do? I decided to buy the expensive #2 pencils--Dixon Ticonderoga. They came in the package already sharpened, so I just stuck them in our pencil holder. Didn't really give it another thought until . . . my kids mentioned how they LoVeD the new pencils!!
I couldn't resist giving the new pencils a try . . . and my kids are so right!!
Cheap pencils stink. Dixon Ticonderoga pencils are awesome and work for us!
