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.
