I have used pens to increase fluency with first graders. Have any of you used pens with little ones? I Have k, and donít want anything messy.

Any suggestions? Someone mentioned sharpie pens, but they arenít cheap and might not last long enough. Maybe gel pens? Idk!

I put tracing sheets inside plastic sheet protectors and students use dry erase markers to write on the plastic sheet protectors.

My students like to use Crayola Water Color Markers (thick and thin sizes) on writing paper.

You might want to reconsider Sharpies if they are permanent.

I used pens for writing workshop in first grade for years. I taught the kids to draw one line (could use ruler if desired) through any word they wanted to fix or eliminate and then write the relacement word above or just continue writing. We use skip-a-line paper. It eliminated all the wasted time erasing and making holes in the paper. Also helped the perfectionists go with the flow a little more. I did let the kids use gel pens and other fancy pens as long as I could read it.
When I taught kindergarten in the old days, I let the kids use skinny crayola markers for writing also. The fat ones got too messy and smudgy.

Thanks for the reminder about the permanent ink. They wear uniforms so I canít let them get ruined. We do have skinny markers, and they are washable, so those may work.

Thanks for your replies!
