Are BIC Lead Pencils Good for Classroom Use?

Using the BIC® Xtra-Precision Mechanical Pencil, Assorted Color Barrels will help develop penmanship in kids and teenagers. Since computers are the prevalent form of communication today, kids are not writing as much as they were previously. However, writing is still important in many aspects of a professional career. Many job applications are still expected to be handwritten, including government documents and presentation materials. Having your students use mechanical pencils for some of their writing helps them develop the ability to write well.

Are Mechanical Pencils a Better Value than Wood Pencils?

The BIC® Xtra-Precision Mechanical Pencil, Assorted Color Barrels is a premium product that provides a much better value than wood pencils. The lead inside of a wood pencil last about 1/3 shorter than a single BIC Mechanical Pencil. In the long run, you'll save money and also the environment. Wood pencils, like other writing tools, must be discarded once they are reduced to a small length. Mechanical pencils are one of the few writing tools that can be constantly refilled.

Are Mechanical Pencils a Better Value Than Ink Pens?

This large package of BIC Lead Pencils includes is a great value compared to other writing tools. Consider every time you buy an ink pen and how long it last. Ink in pens dry out quickly, and they usually run dry at the moments we need them the most. Without a chance to refill the ink, you are forced to find another pen or use a regular pencil. This does not occur with mechanical pencils that are easily refillable. Unlike an ink pen that must be thrown away, you can use a single lead pencil as long as you refill the lead. Doing so prevents any extra accumulation of waste from ink pens and other writing devices.
