My Pencil

My learning tool is long and sharp, it is made with wood. There is a lead in the pencil so that we can draw on paper.

My learning instrument has a long lead so it is easy to draw but sometimes when it breaks it kind of gets annoying. It feels hard and it is seen it in offices.

My drawing friend can draw and write and it does a lot of things for me. It is good to use a pencil because you can use it for school and for your homework.

My Pencil is special and strong like a rock, because when I am holding my rock I can be really creative with it.
