These writing instruments will help my struggling students rediscover the awesomeness of writing. My dyslexic students are learning cursive, so I will allow them to use the erasable Frixion pens in place of a regular pencil. These will be a great motivator to help them want to practice their penmanship. The felt tip pens will be used when they are publishing their work. My students will use the fine tip Expo markers when practicing their coding of words and penmanship on dry erase surfaces I have around the room. Dry erase cuts my paper and copy costs. My goal is to build students up who can read and write efficiently before reaching 2nd grade. The fine tip is important for my students because that will be one less thing for them to worry about since many of them are already struggling with correct pencil grip and placement.
