Adapted paper is a great tool for students who need some extra support with their handwriting. This includes paper to help students with letter size, spacing, positioning paper, stabilizing paper, math paper and more. This includes OVER 200 PAGES including highlight paper, grid paper, paper that has green to start and red to start, goal post paper, grid paper, house paper, sky / grass / dirt paper, paper with alphabet models, legibility checklists and more!
Some paper includes “name” and other paper does not include name written in.
This includes directions and an activity to help students SHOW YOU which size is the best for them. Students copy the same sentence on three different sizes to see what feels the best. The paper is organized by what it is targeting (ie: letter size, spaces, visuals) so you can choose based on this.
This includes paper of 3 different sizes (.5 inch, .75 inch, 1 inch) perfect for kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade, and 5th grade! This includes both yellow highlight for coloring printing and gray for black and white printing. This now has a new math section, that includes graph paper (that is in the spacing section) but also includes highlighted columns for lining up numbers. Laminate any of these sheets to use over and over. Many models include an alphabet model and also without. This is easy to keep in a electronic file so you can print when needed.
