Alternate Pencils Printables by Ezra Reynolds


Alternative “pencils” were created for students who are unable to hold a traditional pencil or
physically manipulate a standard keyboard. Alternative pencils can be used with writers of varying
abilities and ages including students who are emerging writers and those who are able to write more
conventionally. A student is given all the letters of the alphabet to write with, chooses the
letter they want (whether they know the letter or not) and either the partner writes it down for
them. Print, Cut into strips, laminate, bind (optional).
