It bugs me when I go into a store and they are out of basic items but they have plenty of the latest, trendiest, thing you don’t really need. Know what I mean?! Since I don’t want to be part of this madness and since I am in a series starting mood, welcome to Doodles and Jots Basics! To start things off I am sharing a write & draw printable. My kids use paper like this in school all the time. I like the idea of encouraging kids to combine writing and drawing. Heck, I think I will be using it too!
The first two pages (which you can print front and back) are ideal for kindergartners or those just learning to write. Pages three and four are wide ruled for slightly older kids. Print the following PDF (in the printer dialog box, I suggest selecting pages 1&2 or 3&4): write and draw paper
Then gather some crayons a sharp no. 2!
I am really excited about this series! Other ideas I have are staff paper (for writing music), graph paper, panels for writing comics, study guides (for things like times tables, states, etc), paper airplane template, game templates, and a weekly planner.
Help me brainstorm! What other basics could I offer that would be of value?
