My Students

My students are 6th grade Writing, Reading and History students in a public school in California. We have a range of students at all ability levels. They spend half of their school day in my classroom, so we vary our writing activities to keep them engaged.

This creates an issue of equity, and this is where these writing resources can make a world of difference.

All students need opportunities to develop their writing skills, and these erasable pens will make all the difference in their motivation to write and boost their readiness for achieving state standards.

My Project

All of my students want to become better writers. Having an opportunity to write with an erasable pen will interest and engage them. We are always looking to make connections between our curriculum and the outside world. Practice makes perfect!

We need erasable pens that will motivate them, boost their love of writing, and develop their writing skills.

My students write about the books they read every day. An erasable pens are valuable tools to help them produce their finest work. This will set them up for success in other areas of learning, as well as in high school and beyond.
