I purchased these for my 2nd grade class and they were exactly what we needed! They are super safe, so I never have to worry about my students having any accidents. They're a great price, so if one or two happen to get "misplaced" by one of the kids, it's not a burden on our class budget. They work exactly how they should and are easy for all of my students to use. I would highly recommend these scissors, and in fact have already suggested them to my colleagues who teach the first and third grade classes. Thank you!
