Some students have a hard time writing on the lines of paper. Their letter size and placement is all over the paper. One intervention that has helped many students is to highlight the bottom of each line with a highlighter. I started using this intervention with several of my students with much success. I got tired of highlighting so many pieces of paper each day for my self-contained special education classroom. I created paper that could be printed instead of hand highlighting to help save time. With this paper I could print several sheets at a time, cut the edges off, and punch holes to make the paper look close to regular notebook paper. This paper has helped many of my students over time develop better penmanship where they no longer need the aid of highlighted paper. Over the years our occupational therapist, counselor, resource and classroom teachers have asked for copies of this paper to use with their students. I am making this wonderful teaching tool available for others to use to help their students.
This has been a great resource for my students who struggle with handwriting and it saves me from having to draw on their paper with highlighter all the time. A great time saver for me and effective modification for them. Thanks!
