Tips for Using Fun Writing Tools with Elementary Students

While these fun writing tools for elementary students are very engaging, they can also easily become a distraction! You’ll want to clearly establish your expectations before introducing these types of writing tools. Make sure students know the correct way to use them as well as when it is an appropriate time.

To prevent distractions, you may want to make these writing tools only accessible during certain parts of the day. You can have them available during a writing center. Or you can create a VIP Writing Caddy where you keep these tools. Students can earn a chance to use the writing utensils as part of a classroom behavior management system or when they are the Student of the Week. By controlling access to the writing utensils you can minimize distractions and help the tools last longer.
