Iím looking to spice up my writing center to make work on writing time more fun and engaging. What kind of utensils do you place in your writing center?

Do you just mean different things to write with? Not sure what grade but...

Smelly markers
Twistable crayons
Flair pens
Alphabet Stamps
Dry erase markers/ boards

Neon Colored Paper

was the favorite of my students before I retired.

I also bought souvenir pencils and pens when I traveled. I tried to get the novelty ones with things attached that kids might like. If I went to the zoo I bought one with a tiny animal on the other end. When I visited the place where they print our money bills I bought a big pen that had shredded money inside. We called it the $1,000 pen. The kids loved this one!

I had some squeeze balls to play with for a minute or less if their hand got tired from all the writing. They were colorful and had different pic on them.

I kept stickers there and I would set a limit of how many they could use. It was usually just one but sometimes I allowed more as a treat.

I also had ink stamps and ink pads in different colors that add to the writing center at times as a treat.

I had an old filing cabinet by my writing center. It was just a two drawer and was the same height as the table. I had a poetry magnet set to "write" with on the side of the cabinet. Inside the cabinet I had clipboards so they could go write anywhere in the classroom. Sometimes we even used these for outdoor writing.

I had some plastic portable writing tables that they enjoyed. I got mine at a discount store so they were not as expensive as the ones in the link I am showing you for an example. I had folding ones before but they broke too easily. This one piece style was more durable.

Scented pencils

Great ideas. Yeah, I was thinking along the lines of pens, pencils, etc.

1956BD, I have a ton of that paper. My kids last year loved it. This year? Hate it. They feel the colors donít show up as well when they illustrate their writing.

Question: What are flare pens?
