    I've never seen paper like that before. I don't think I'd be able to write on something like that though.

    When I taught second grade, I absolutely loved that paper. I've also used it for students with spacing issues.

    I'm going to have to go pay a few tablets.

    We made our own paper like this. We just drew a green and red line with marker on the paper for students who needed it. Some of my sixth graders still need this reminder from time to time when writing.

    I've never seen that paper before. I had a couple of kids last year that could really use that. I could not pay them to stay in reasonable space on the paper.

    I use it with a couple of kids - mostly towards the end of the year, or during summer tutoring. In 2nd we use large lined handwriting paper, in 3rd they use regular notebook paper. It is useful for helping the kids with spacing/handwriting problems make the transition.

    I've used it with some of my 4th graders. They absolutely hated it and they fixed the spacing issues with their writing very quickly. If their writing got messy again, out came the special paper.

    I've got 10 pads of it on my supply shelf...DH found it in the bargain bin at the grocery store and thought it was something I could use.

    Never saw this before. I've had 8th graders who could have used this paper!

    I have some but have never used it, although I should have since I teach first. As soon as I saw it on this link a billion ideas came to my mind.

    I think it was about $2.50 at Walmart, on the Mead website it's $3.50...maybe I should go back and grab them since they are being discontinued

    I just picked up a pad on clearance at Staples for $1.50. You might want to check around. I plan on using it for kiddos with spacing issues.

    I bought a tablet of this to use with my 6th graders this past year. Some of them had horrible handwriting. Some of them even looked forward to going to the handwriting center because it was helping.

    I teach special ed. and we can get it from the Occupational Therapist when the needs arrived. I used it with a high school student who had the most smooshed together writing I've ever seen. It helped. I better let the OT know they are discontinuing it!

    I tried it on my son one summer and realized the real reason his writing looked so smushed and messy was because he actually writes over his letters two or three times for some letters and once for others, etc. So we didn't continue using the paper but it was easier to see the problem.
