The kindergarten style is intended for the beginning printer and narrow style for the older student using manuscript or cursive writing. We have found that kindergarten students also do well with the regular style.
There are many ways in which the paper can be incorporated into your curriculum. For example, the paper can be cut into narrow vertical or horizontal strips. The vertical strips could then be used for a spelling list. The horizontal strip could be used for an alphabet model placed on the student’s desk. You can punch holes in the paper and bind it to make a personal journal for the student. You can further cut down the paper to fit on a mailing envelope. See some examples below.
Research has found that students read better with different colored overlays. Therefore we offer the paper in two colors with the same idea that some students would prefer the yellow and some the blue. It’s a good idea to try the different colors with each student.
