    I'm looking for a new pen to use for grading this year. So lovely A to Zers, what is your all-time favorite pen to grade with? :)

    I like the papermate felt-tipped marker-like pens. There's also a gel pen I like that WalMart carries but I forget the brand name.

    I'm in the Flair camp, too! I use all of the colors except yellow (it's too hard to read).

    I'm partial to the Pilot Frixon ball pens this year, especially the pink and purple.

    Also use papermate flair

    The teacher before me in my room must have used red Sharpies - not the fine point, but like a real sharpie, to grade papers. I tried it a few times. It looks pretty harsh but it is kind of cathartic.

    Fine or the regular Sharpies...but in blue, green, or purple. No paticular reason for the colors, I just love them. Fine for making comments on reading/writing papers and the regular for spelling and math. Well to be more clearer, fine is better for my handwriting that seems big, slanty, and kinda bubbly. Okay, I'm a little too far indepth with this question...sorry! LOL

    I've tried using the fine point Sharpie markers for grading, but the ink seeps through the page. The new Sharpie pens are really nice, though. I use them for my personal writing. Very smooth, and the ink is great.

    I like the papermate felt tip markers. I also like thin tipped Sharpies. (or whatever is closest!)

    I just use purple-I don't care about the brand. I think most of mine are papermate.

    Pilot G-2 or Uniball Signo 207. They're a bit pricey but it makes grading that much more pleasant.

    I know someone will laugh but so be it. I have a tendency to use my New Moon pen with Edward on it. Lol

    I love the flair pens and thin crayola markers (the ones with the barrel that is about the size of a #2 pencil). It has less to do with the quality of pen/ink and more to do with the array of colors I can get - I'm totally type A/OCD and I color code my gradebook... and since I'm that type A personality I can't have some ballpoint pens, some gel pens, and some rollerball - they must all be the same and must come in a variety of colors.
