Thanks for the info and thanks to everyone who emailed me. The consensus was the Wacom tablets. I have looked into them. It looks like they will be about $200 each. I have been working on a Donor's Choose submission. Hopefully it will get funded and I can start with a few and keep adding.
Thanks again everyone and Happy Holidays!

My future son-in-law is an illustration/graphic artist in NYC. He and I talk at length about digital equipment. He uses Wacom and a pen that I think he called Cequil? Very nice. A pencil shape mouse actually. The IPad works well with your finger.
