    Us parents need to unite and help our teachers out they need supplies. Children mysteriously lose items faster than a cat sheds… they need our help we need to come together as parents and understand that they are doing the job that we do not want to do because if we wanted to do it we would homeschool our kids! A supply list is given out every year please take that and at least double the supplies requested so the teachers are not forced to use money out of their own pockets to replace items that our children lose or misplaced or forget about and the janitor throws that forgotten item away.. teachers are the backbones to parents never forget that! And never forget that before the pandemic teachers were begging for a livable wage they are severely underpaid and should not be made to pay for school supplies for our children!

    Great pencils branded with Amazon

    I ordered these pencils to donate to the local school since they were running low on supplies. The pencils were a great price and showed up quickly. I liked the Amazon name on the No. 2 pencils, it gave it kind of a cool look! The school was very excited to receive the pencils and handed them out to the children that needed them! Thank you Amazon and we will be ordering more.

    Perfect for the classroom!

    I have historically purchased these pencils for my classroom as they come pre-sharpened and I don’t have to waste precious time sharpening pencils, when I could be planning, or doing a thousand other things. These last a long time and are not fragile or old like seasonal school pencils can sometimes be, which have fragile lead and break constantly and don’t last. These have never had that issue for me, they have been consistently perfect. My ONE complaint, and it is just me, my students find the erasers delicious and tend to chew them off…if there were something to make these less tasty, that would be great! I will say, good luck getting 6 year old’s to keep stuff out of their mouths, they are like teething toddlers with these pencils. Overall, highly recommend for educators looking to budget their time with more productive activities rather than sharpen pencils.

    Your basic pencil.

    I love how many you get for the value. I rated it five stars but I gave the longevity four stars because the erasers break off so easy.

  5. Tomi

    Great price for a quality, basic pencil

    At the end of the school year, I always buy a pack of pencils to replenish my depleted stock. (I teach 7th and 8th grade English). Last year, I bought 144 golf pencils for about $8. It was a great investment, because a lot of times, I have kids who ALWAYS forget a pencil. They aren’t the ones who necessarily need a pencil, because more often than not, they would lose the pencil again before they made a mistake. However, despite having 144 of them, I ran out in late April, with about two months still left in the school year. I will buy another pack of those golf pencils for the students who perpetually borrow a pencil, but I quickly learned that every so often, I had a student who really needed a pencil, but wasn’t someone who made a habit of bringing nothing to class. Likewise, these were students were the ones who didn’t need it for a few periods, but truly needed a new pencil for them to keep for weeks. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any “real” pencils, and when I saw these AmazonBasic pencils on sale (96 for about $6 – regularly they’re less than $8), I knew I needed these as well.I’m actually really picky about my own personal pencils. I have a favorite brand, and I have a favorite brand of erasers to put on them. Nevertheless, I was really excited to try out these pencils because although they didn’t have the price tag of a Dixon-Ticonderoga, they still worked really well.QUALITY:These are just your every day, basic pencils, but that’s how I like mine. I hate pencils with that plastic film with a design printed on them. With “cute” pencils, you aren’t paying for the pencil, you’re paying for whatever logo is on it (like Frozen or Star Wars). When you sharpen those ones for the first time, the film splits and then the cute design ends up peeling off. However, these AmazonBasics pencils were easy to sharpen, and they were nice to write with. Sometimes, pencils are prone to have the graphite split so there is a strange press on the paper, resulting in “double” writing. I wrote for a bit with the pencil and even as it dulled, it still wrote nicely. You can note a small letter I wrote to test it; it is the third image.ERASER:Another thing I hate about cheap pencils is the garbage erasers. As a teacher, I write most things in pen, but I always do my grade book in pencil. If a student turns in something late, I need to erase the previous grade to change it, and I can’t stand having left over marks from a bad eraser. Now, as I mentioned, I have one specific brand of erasers which are honestly God’s gift to humanity, and I always slap one of those bad boys on my pencils, but this really wasn’t bad as far as erasers go. I mean, it was still obvious that I made a mistake, but I also press into the paper like I’m trying to cut a hole into the table underneath. I write DARK. I have many students who press lightly. As well, if I were drawing, I would draw lighter. In the third picture attached to this review, there are two instances of erasing. The first is over “film” in fourth line in the first paragraph. The other is the second paragraph, titled “Eraser test.” As I mentioned, I write so dark that it’s difficult to erase to the point where it doesn’t appear that there was a mistake at all, but I also think your average person wouldn’t mind. I can clearly make out what is written over the erased bits, and no annoying parts of the eraser were left behind (like a giant pink smudge… Ugh, I hate that the most).SMUDGE TEST:Speaking of smudges, I don’t frequently smudge my pencil work because I’m right handed. However, I have left handed students who turn in work that is barely legible because they drag their hand throughout their writing constantly. Thinking of them, I wanted to test out how badly the graphite smudged on a hand. The results are the fourth picture. Now, this wasn’t just me carefully dragging my hand over the paper; I really pressed, TRYING to smudge the words. And yeah, I did smudge it a bit, and yeah, I did get some graphite on my hand. However, this is NOTHING compared to some of the other pencils I’ve seen. As you can see from my hand, it was minor, considering I was literally pressing hard on the paper, trying to get the graphite on my hand.OVERALL:The bottom line is that a 12 pack of any type of pencils can go for over $2. In fact, a lot of times the “cute” pencils are the most expensive, but they’re the worst as far as quality. If looks aren’t a thing you care about, but do care about quality, these are the best deal. A 96 pack of Ticonderoga pencils can range from $14-$20 (depending on packaging and color and where you’re buying them). I always use Ticonderogas as the standard for the perfect pencil because I used them throughout my childhood; my mother was literally born in Ticonderoga, NY. However, the AmazonBasics are the best bang for your buck. Are they cute? Is your kid going to be inspired by the cool Frozen or Star Wars logo? No. Because this is a standard, BASIC pencil. They’re just yellow. But to be honest, those “cool looking” pencils always lack quality compared to something like this. The simplicity is what makes these pencils so great; they’re just pencils. They know their function, and they get the job done. These are definitely going to be my “good” pencils from now on, especially to give out to kids who really are responsible with their supplies.

    Homeschoolers who seem to eat through pencils

    I purchased these a few weeks ago. We homeschool and seem to go through pencils like water. I tried mechanical pencils, however they disappeared to quickly to be economical. We school on the go enough that I think they just drop or not pick them up. These pencils do a good job. We’ve had no real breakage issues with the lead or pencils themselves. As they come pre-sharpened we were able to dump them in the pencil box immediately and not have to stand around sharpening them all. Great value for us so far.

    Nice pencils for the price.

    They seemed to be a bit harder with the lead than a #2 pencil.

  8. Yolanda Singleton

    Decent pencils for the price

    These are decent pencils for everyday use. Even with this many, your family will somehow lose them all in an absurdly short amount of time. I’m guessing they are all under the driver’s seat of my wife’s car or lost behind the couch.

    Good ol’ pencils to write tons of stories

    So far I like them

    So far I like the pencil I have in use. Yes, you’re right, it’s just a pencil, but plenty I’ve bought have the lead inside broken so badly you just sharpen what would be a brand new pencil down to the numb. Anyways, I found the product and cost appropriate. Hope this helps 🙂

    Good Pencils

    They’re pencils. What more can I say. Make great shop pencils for woodworking.

  16. Katie M

    Easy to sharpen- don’t break easily

    As a teacher, I have pencil opinions. These are great and the fact that they come sharpened is a lifesaver. They don’t break easily and the erasers work well too.

    Pre-sharpened Pencils= Teacher Dream

    Love the cost for this bundle. While they aren’t Ticonderoga, the hold up reasonably well and sharpen like champs.

    Teachers Delight

    Have you ever taught in a classroom where it seems not one single kid has brought their own pencils? I have… almost daily. And the pain of trying to sharpen a dozen pencils to just do a math worksheet!?!?!?!? UGH!!!!! These come presharpened so take that little annoyance out of the equation. Pow! Problem solved. They seem to sharpen nicely as well and the eraser works like a charm.

  25. John J. Fiorillo Jr.

    Lead is Dark enough to see.

    Wonderful pencils that do the job, dark enough to read and not round but octagon shaped to not roll off your desk. I like to use pencils for my password book so if I change passwords ,I can erase and fill in new password. These are #2 pencils that students use for exams. Excellent erasers ,but I prefer to add my own over the one on the pencil ✏ . Prior to buying these pencils I was getting frustrated with my current pencils that the lead was so soft and light that I could not read what I had written. I now have pencils that I like and will throw away all of my old pencils. Very happy with this product. 5 stars *****.

    It’s Pencils! Now with More Pencils!

    I bought this giant pack of pencils after my kid’s school wrote begging for pencils. I bought them pre-sharpened because I happen to like these teachers –and it seemed insulting to buy 150 pencils that needed to be sharpened. Like leaving pennies for your waitress. Although I did not spend time testing every pencil–the teachers assure me that they all contain lead and seem to be working without issue. Woo pencils.

    A gift for my Niece who is a first time, first grade teacher!

    These #2 pencils were not for me but for my Niece who started teaching first grade this school year. I knew that there might be a need for these even though she and/or the students would likely have all that they would need but I like to always be prepared and thought that these would come in handy. She certainly appreciated them and has been able to keep everyone well supplied with plenty to spare! I sent a few other items as well just your basic classroom necessities. I feel that that as much as the school and/or parents should provide for their kids – I know that there will always be those who cannot afford or provide and hope that these items help to fill those gaps. Anyhow, congratulations to my Niece for having the guts to become a teacher – and a first grade teacher at that!

    Pencil works fine

    It’s a basic pencil. All the pencils came already sharpened and no breakage. For the price you can’t beat it. I gave these to my Grand-kids.

  31. D. Watkins


    Thank you! Please keep the price down for teachers to afford.

  32. E. Rab

    Good quality and easy for the classroom

    Buying presharpened pencils is a must for my classroom. These pencils are *almost* as good as Ticonderoga. Definitely better than dollar store or other store brands. This was my 5th time purchasing a box.

  33. GramPam

    Teacher Daughter Loves these Pencils

    My daughter is a 3rd grade teacher and was very impressed with the pencils coming already sharpened for her students. Her school district does not provide the students with pencils so she assumes the cost. I thought this would be a great gift for her students and I was not disappointed!! Great quality!

    I love these pencils. They are great value. Last a long time. They write well

    I did not receive the product first time, had to place a replacement order. Product arrived 2nd time. Package was intact and no broken parts. Its easy to hold and my son likes it. I hoped it would be little more darker and smoother while writing.

    Get them!! I have four kids and pencils go by really fast. Kids lose them, break them or sharpen them too much, it was worth the purchase. My only regret is not getting the bigger box.
