Blank Top Handwriting Paper, Files & Tips

What does one do with blank top paper?

Blank-top paper is useful for more activities than I am about to suggest. To sum up almost everything in one sentence, Typically one can draw on the blank top area of the paper and write something about the drawing on the ruled area of the paper.

Some Examples
arrow Draw a picture of something, such as a dog, and write dog several times or a sentence about the dog.
arrow Draw a picture of your house and write your address.
arrow Draw a picture of yourself or family members and write their names or write a short story or a little bit about the person.
arrow Draw a picture of a telephone and write your phone numbers.
