A new manual pencil sharpener and left-handed Anna hard at work sharpening every pencil she could find. I thought of the pencils at home that need some new points to write lists, notes and phone numbers. She needed a sharp pencil to complete her homework. Mary suggested the manual as the electric ones break easily or host a crayon. Nothing like a new can of sharpened pencils to represent possibility.
GREAT! Love the drum-roll. HAPPY NEW YEAR and “God bless Us Everyone!!”
Thanks Erica. Hope you had a nice holiday.
See you in the new year.
Thanks for pointing out THE DATE: 01-01-2011. There are going to be several interesting dates this month!!!
This is one I did never have thaugh of, it do let you think.
Loved the photo of the can of sharpened pencils at the end! Nice work.
Thanks Kay. Happy New Year.
Happy New Year Ruth!! I like the new look. Hope you enjoyed every minute of the break!!
Happy New Year Lara. It was a great break.
Hope you had a good one, too.
Thanks Ruth…you are so creative. Anna is so cute.
“A pencil never meets paper without a point” Thank Anna for her contribution to the meaningfulness of this New Year.
Sorry I’m late, but I’m still on the west coast. Happy and healthy new year to all.
I love the looks on Anna’s face during the entire time it took to sharpen all those pencils. My electric sharpener broke so now I just use pens! Happy New Year to everyone!
what a great way to start the new year! I like that she wrote “pencils” on the can!
A good task to fill some time on a rainy day.
We have enjoyed the down pours as it gave us an excuse to remain at home all day and relax – cook – take naps. A great schedule for the new year.
This is great! I sure could use her in my classroom!
