Newsprint ruled paper helps kids learn how to print or write cursive letters in English and other languages. It has the appropriate line and spacing widths to enable K-5 students to practice forming short and tall letters and then transforming letters into handwritten words and sentences. Staples® has a wide range of graph paper as well as pens and pencils for writing tasks.

Newsprint Ruled Paper Provides Specific Lines and Spacing
All letter-practice newsprint paper contains sets of solid and alternating dash lines. Each row of ruled lines is called a ruling. A ruling includes a solid headline where the top of a tall letter reaches and a solid baseline where the bottom of both tall and short letters sit. An alternating-dash midline falls exactly between the two, providing a top-point marker for short letters and mid-point marker for tall letters. Below each of the rulings on wide-ruled paper is a blank skip space to mark divisions between practice-letter lines or between sentences. Many types of ruled writing paper also have red-line margins to the left side of the sheet to help students maintain sentence and paragraph consistency.

Newsprint Ruled Paper Is Inexpensive and Has the Right Consistency for Handwriting Practice
Newsprint consists of ground wood pulp whose fibers are dried into sheets that go through little additional refinement. This basic, nonarchival paper usually has an off-white color and the consistency of newspaper or comic-book paper. Its distinct, coarse surface lets kids adapt to the slow, deliberate process of pencil handwriting practice, and its fibrous surface also lets youngsters erase pencil marks easily to start lettering over if necessary. Newsprint ruled writing paper does accept printed rule lines in the last stage of its production, but it's not suitable for printed output with printer ink or toner.

What Sizes of Newsprint Ruled Paper Are Available?
The size of letter-practice paper for kids from kindergarten to 5th grade must match the dexterity of growing hands, so it comes with a wide variety of inch and fractional-inch spacing between headline, midline, and baseline rules. The actual size of each sheet of newsprint ruled writing paper also varies widely, so different grade levels can orient themselves easily when practicing their letters on desktops and tabletops. Both portrait and landscape-oriented paper is available, in sizes that include 9 x 12, 18 x 12, 11 x 8.5, 24 x 36, and 10.5 x 8 inches.

What Other Features Does Newsprint Ruled Paper Offer?
Newsprint paper with rulings comes in standard penmanship paper, with equal-size rulings running the length of the sheet, or story paper, with the top 5.5 inches of each sheet blank to let kids draw, doodle, or take notes. Other styles of newsprint ruled writing paper include sentence strips of two rulings for practicing distinct sentence writing, as well as ruled flash cards for basic mnemonics. Most paper-pad sizes come in 50 or 100 sheets, either tape-bound at the top or spiral bound along the sides. Single-sheet paper is also available in 500-sheet reams.

Does Newsprint Ruled Paper Fit the Major Handwriting Practice Programs?
Most kids learn one of two handwriting methods. The vast majority of ruled writing paper for kids accommodates both. One is the D'Nealian™ program, in which students learn to print in slanted strokes that lead easily into cursive writing. The other is the Zaner-Bloser™ handwriting program, with a more straight-up style of printing and a more slanted style of cursive. The one benefit of the D’Nealian program is that students rarely have to lift their pencil from the paper to form letters, and the consistency of newsprint paper readily supports this style. Staples carries a variety of paper and office supplies that help you stay organized throughout the year.
