Writing Materials for Children

McGee and Richgels (1996) discuss appropriate writing materials for children:

"Teachers select a variety of writing tools and materials to support their literacy program:

In addition to these materials, creative teachers will find many unusual writing materials that appeal to children, such as scented markers, alphabet stamps, and letter-shaped cookie cutters. Children occasionally enjoy using unusual writing surfaces, such as magic slates, pebble board, and scratch-off paper. Office or art supply stores sell many kinds of exciting writing materials that creative teachers can adapt for classroom use." (p. 190)
