Abby is in first grade and she has daily homework. Much of it involves writing. One thing that she is not good at so far in school is using that ridiculous three-line ruled paper, probably because she's been using the plain lined paper for so long already, even in kindergarten.
The problem with this paper is that there simply doesn't seem to be anywhere to obtain it easily.
While I would love to run out and pick up a ream of the stuff to use as scrap paper after Abby switches to college-ruled for second grade, it seems like a waste. Plus, even if I order the special paper, when I run out of it, there's no trekking to the grocery store to get a new pack. But I have a solution.
I'm not sure why someone didn't think of this before. Maybe they did, but I couldn't find it. If you're searching for three-lined paper for first grade or second grade, and you need some in a pinch, this might be the thing for you.
I've created a PDF that lets you print the lines (solid on top and dashed in the middle) in either portrait or landscape orientation. The top and middle lines are blue, and the bottom is red. If you print it on a laser printer it still works, it's just not likely to be in color.
The usefulness of this has already proved its worth in its first night in existence, and I'm hoping that with practice, Abby's writing on the odd paper improves.
