Lined paper provides students with key information on where to start and end their letters. As students develop a more refined pencil grasp, their letters get smaller in size.
It is important to match the students’ letter size to the width of the line. Writing lines that are too wide cause students to “draw” their letters in order to fit the lines. This results in slower, less automatic letter formation. The “Line Picker” Assessment Tool allows one to quickly assess which line width is right for each student.
This packet also contains three-lined writing paper in three widths (small, medium and large), in portrait and landscape, in three design layouts:
- full page of writing lines
- name line, drawing frame and two writing lines
- drawing frame and three writing lines
This resource is also part of the Handwriting Heroes Bundle.
