CLASSROOM 4M — Many kids love bringing pens into school. But some teachers do not like using pens because they don’t erase. On the other hand, other teachers do not mind using pens, and some Colonial teachers allow erasable pens in their classrooms.

Ron Martucci, a fourth grade teacher, said he likes pencils for math because they erase almost fully, but pens are better for writing and script because the text is smoother and that helps you write better.

Leo Jursic, who is in Mr. Martucci’s class, likes pencils better. “I like pencils because if you make a mistake you can erase and change the answer.”

Max Halvorson agreed with Leo because you can erase if you make a mistake.
