    Anyone used them? If so, what did you think?

    I always keep a pack of colored pencils at each of my table groups for misc. things, but the leads are constantly breaking and/or needing sharpening.

    Twistables seemed like a good alternative.

    Any opinions? Also, if you are familiar, any preferance between the "colored pencils" and "crayons"?

    I had a student use the twistables and they lasted the whole year for him. I might get some for special projects. I asked students to come in with both colored pencils and crayons. I didn't specify on twistables, even though I do like them.

    I love twistables, and so do my students. I actually requested them from parents last year because they last so much longer, and the kids feel like they are using "big kids" crayons. So it works all around.

    Well, that works out to $2 a set. Not sure if you can find them cheaper than that individually during back to school sales or not.

    Aren't they assorted colors? I was thinking 48 different colors like the Crayola 64 box...

    I know my school gets a big discount ordering through Office Depot. Sometimes it's more than 50% off. If your school does that then it would be really cheap.
