Blank Top Handwriting Paper, Files & Tips
What does one do with blank top paper?
Blank-top paper is useful for more activities than I am about to suggest. To sum up almost everything in one sentence, Typically one can draw on the blank top area of the paper and write something about the drawing on the ruled area of the paper.
Draw a picture of something, such as a dog, and write dog several times or a sentence about the dog.
Draw a picture of your house and write your address.
Draw a picture of yourself or family members and write their names or write a short story or a little bit about the person.
Draw a picture of a telephone and write your phone numbers.
Handwriting Paper - 2012 Set Blank-Top
The 2012 Set has 9 rule sizes from 1 inch through 1/4 inch in 1/8 inch increments including 1 centimeter and 1/4 inch Tall.
Rule sizes, when printed, may not be exactly as described.
The rule lines are in shades of gray. The bottom line is the darkest and the middle line is the lightest.
The set has all rule sizes in both fully ruled paper and blank top paper. Additionally, the 1/4 inch rule is available in a booklet format.
The paper with the "1/4 inch Tall" rule is not symmetrical. The lowercase part of the rule is 1/8 inch, as it should be for a 1/4 rule, but the other two areas of the rule are taller. The uppercase part is 3/16 inch tall and the lowest part of the rule is 1/4 inch tall.
