Pre-chewed pencils supposed to help students concentrate

by ally - on December 14th, 2008

Remember the good old days in school?  Attempting to concentrate and as you’re doing so, practically chewing a hole in your pencil.  Well now one company has decided to create pencils that look as if they’ve already been chewed on.  They think it will discourage youngsters from gnawing on the pencils.  What is the point of doing that?  Well it’s certainly not for dental benefits.  No, they believe that if students stop chewing on their pencils it will help them concentrate more.  Personally, I never found chewing on my pencil to be distracting.  The only thing I was distracted by was the thought of lunch or finally escaping the classroom.  No word just yet as to how much these pre-chewed pencils will cost.
