One of the most bothersome things a student can do in class is to get up to sharpen his/her pencil at the most inopportune time. Before getting up, make sure you use seat signals to get permission.
A few additional reminders:
- Wait until no one is addressing the class.
- Don’t chat on the way to or from the sharpener, or during the sharpening process.
- Refrain from making comments about how well the pencil sharpener is working.
