It sounds like a silly question, but as a teacher I know we all have that favorite pen that we like to write with . For grading papers I prefer to use markers (Mr. Sketch scented markers), but for everyday writing I like using a gel pen. However, I'm still on the search for a great gel pen. Anyone have a pen recommendation?

I LOVE the sharpie pens!! They write smooth, don't bleed, and I love the fine tip. I also guard them from everyone else.

Are my favorite, with the needle point tip.

I bought a uni-ball vision elite last week because I liked the ink. It said "color infused black ink." The ink looks like you took black and red ink and mixed them. Also a green/black and purple/black. The point is wider than I like but I love the color!

I love, love, love Frixion erasable pens!

mrsb12247 07-22-2014 12:15 PM

Pentech V5, fine tip. Love these!

klarabelle 07-22-2014 11:36 AM

My favorite is the Inkjoy.

teachindakidz 07-22-2014 11:15 AM

Seems like we teachers LOVE our pens! After reading everyone's response, I almost want to go out and buy one of each type that everyone mentioned. I think I will definitely try at least one of the Papermate Flairs/Inkjoys.

Thanks for sharing your pens with me

Bold G-2's for regular writing, LePen thin markers, and Flair colors for grading.

GoldenGirl81 07-22-2014 09:11 AM

I also love Papermate Profiles for writing and grading. For my planner and gradebook, I like Papermate Flairs.

mooseweaver 07-22-2014 09:10 AM

Love my Flairs for grading! Also love my bold G2's--can't seem to use fine points for everyday writing--I think as the day goes on, I push harder on the pen and the fine points go right through the paper!

I have a pink (breast cancer) pen that is a Shaffer I think. I like blue ink medium point. The new inkjoy ones are nice but it is hard to find blue ink. Weird I know. I grade papers with Flair markers and just got the big pack for sale at Office Max. I have used Flairs the whole 32 years I've taught. Many more colors than years ago.

I love my Flair pens! They are great for grading papers and I also use them in my grade book. They come in lots of colors which comes in handy when I am color coding things. Even the yellow pen shows up, unlike yellow marker.

Lilbitkm 07-22-2014 08:52 AM

I like the RSVP pens that come in a variety of colors.

I got some of the Paper Mate Flair pens from Office Max the other day and am hoping that I like that as much as the RSVP

I LOVE Sharpie Pens (and they come in different colors too). I love the medium point ones but they are hard to find. Sharpie Pens are expensive so I hide them and don't let ANYONE use them for any reason.

I haven't found a good grading pen yet. I know a lot of people use marker but I so particular about how things look that I don't think I could use a marker.

peachteach 07-22-2014 07:59 AM

My favorite is the Pilot Frixion. It's erasable!!!! They are getting harder to find, though. I've been ordering on Amazon and getting a variety of colors.

amiga13 07-22-2014 07:28 AM

I love Pentel Energel.

I'd ordered a pack of 4 with my most recent Amazon order. It came yesterday and I was so busy ooohing and aaahing over my new books that I forgot all about the pens. Fortunately, when DH broke down the box for recycling, he found my pens.

MissC83 07-22-2014 04:38 AM

My new favorite pen is the Papermate Inkjoy 100 (several different colors, too)---- I got an 8 pk for $2 at the teacher store! They write just like the Papermate Profile pens (which I love!), but they are shaped like triangular prisms.... very comfortable!

Lakeside 07-22-2014 03:44 AM

Someone bought me a whole set of InkJoys in different colors, and I love them!

forkids2 07-22-2014 02:01 AM

I second the Papermate profile - they write smoothly and have a good grip. They aren't too expensive either.

SCS89 07-21-2014 08:30 PM

I prefer fine tips
Uni ball gel pens
Pilot G2
Pentel Energel


Ball point pens
Pentel RSVP

I, too, like Papermate Flair pens. I use them mostly for grading.

My favorite everyday pen is the Pilot G2, bold line. But....those are pricy, and 9 times out of 10, I write with a cheap pen...like a hotel pen. I am a big fan of those

Sbkangas5- Office Depot has a big pack of Flair pens on sale this week!

Sbkangas5 07-21-2014 07:03 PM

Papermate flair. In lots of pretty colors.

giver1940 07-21-2014 06:56 PM

gel pens, but love Papermate Profile pens. They write smoothly and are easy for me to hold.
