Pen Licences

Free on Plus | 3 pages (PDF, Word)|Grades: 5 - 7

They’ve done it! They have achieved the all important goal of being allowed to write with a pen. This moment deserves something special.

This licence award can be used to reward students for working hard and being neat enough to now write in pen. This teaching resource is a perfect incentive for writing and literacy activities.

You can choose a licence that allows you to take a photo of your students and put it on there, just like a real licence, or one where they draw a picture of themselves, or no picture at all.

Simply cut around the licences and stick the front and back together, then laminate them and they are good to go.

P.S – Make sure you both sign it… there are some terms and conditions on the back that you may need to enforce one day.

Editable Word version available for download.

Just wondering if we can download this Pen Licence as a Word Document, so that we can add the photo easily?
