B2S Office Supplies

 There are lots of reasons that I look forward to back to school time.  I love the fresh start of a new school year and seeing new faces.  I look forward to getting my classroom ready to welcome those new faces.  And like most teachers and students I also love getting new school supplies!  When Shoplet.com Office Supplies asked me to review products from Sharpie and Paper-Mate, I was thrilled to do so!

I reviewed Sharpie Electro Pop Permanent Markers, Paper-Mate Effortless Glide Ballpoint Pens, Paper-Mate Easy to Hold Mechanical Pencils, and Paper-Mate Liquid Paper DryLine Grip Correction Tape.

I'm a huge fan of any Sharpie Markers.  They never disappoint!  I love using their fine tip markers when I'm grading.  My students love seeing the different colors that I use.  The Electro Pop colors are soft but vibrant.  I'm happy to add them to my Sharpie collection!

My plan book is going to look nice and bright with all the colors of the Paper-Mate Gel pens.  The pens are comfortable to grip and glide easily across the page.  I didn't have any problems with the ink smearing as I wrote in my plan book.  Overall these are great multipurpose pens!

There are so many things I love about these pencils!  First of all, let's just talk about the colors.  These pencils match the colors I've chosen for my classroom this year- perfectly!  Colors aside, I love the thickness of these pencils.  Both the body of the pencil is thick and the 1.3 mm lead is thick.  This keeps the lead from constantly breaking.  The pencils are refillable too!  My only con is that the eraser isn't very sturdy while erasing.  I held the pencil at the end instead of the shaft for fear it might fall off the pencil.  This seemed to help. 

I'm often reluctant to use pens when writing out my actual plans in my plan book (unless I'm using Fixion pens) for fear of constant mistakes.  The Paper-Mate Correction Tape will help alleviate those fears.  The correction tape glides easily across the page and is easy to control.  I love using tape much more than liquid because there is no drying time needed.  This tape is a must have if you're using pens in your plan book!
