Pen Licences

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF, Word | 3 pages | Years: 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.
