Carved pens

The first, second and third grade students will be writing in cursive this week, so it was time to make pens. Most of the 2nd and 3rd grade students have done this in the past, but their work improves each year. And they don't mind doing them again. The results are shown below.

  1. I can't imagine a better hands-on activity for this age group than making the very pen that they can then use in their other classes. As hard as it is for boys to sit still in classes all day, this pen of their own exercise can only make those less exciting classes somehow more productive for them. An absolutely great idea so thanks for sharing it!
