Good normal everyday pencil!

These beginner pencils are a staple in my K-5 art room. They work well because of their thickness with small hands to large hands. I keep them stockpiled along with pink pearl erasers as the eraser tip wears out sooner than the pencil. I wish they were available without the eraser tip so the metal that supports the eraser wouldn't scratch the kids papers once the eraser starts wearing out.
would purchase again
The pencils were for preschoolers to makes imprints (drawings) on foam sheets for watercolor prints. The wider pencil was great both because not all preschoolers have strong fine motor skills to grip a pencil and because the lead is also wider, which created a wider imprint for lines on the foam. Ticonderoga is an excellent brand. The only downside was that the pencils did not fit in my sharpeer so I had to carve tips with a knife.

I teach art to kids from grades k-2. I see 200 kids each day and we used to go through a lot pencils! I like the Beginner size because they do not need to be sharpened as often due to the thicker lead. They are also less likely to break, they have a bigger eraser that does not snap off, and the kids do not seam to press down as hard when they are drawing.

They may make these for writing, but they're brilliant for drawing. The leads don't break easily, they take a great point, and they make a lovely silvery line.
Not your children's pencil.

I've been a carpenter for 45 years and was always irritated that flat carpenter pencils made such a wide mark letting accuracy suffer. Standard pencils are too weak to mark rough wood surfaces and break the points just when you need them. Then I married a kindergarten teacher and began to use her student's pencils. She now makes me buy them myself but the Ticonderoga Beginner 's Pencil is the best in the business for my business and Blick's has the best deal. Just hide them from your grand children as they can have a tendency to walk off.

I have used these pencils before. If you sharpen them with an old fashioned pencil sharpener, they last forever between sharpening! Great price too!
