What kind of writing paper

In third grade do you have kids writing on notebook paper? I've always used the newsprint paper with the dashed middle line, but I'm thinking of changing. Do you teach them to skip a line as they write? How many of you use those little composition books?

We use wide ruled notebook paper. Most of mine are fine with it. Sometimes I have them skip lines, especially if we are going to do a lot of editing.

Notebooks or composition books work, too.

I use "exercise books". Not sure if they call them that in the US, but in Canada that is what we call them. Paper cover, lined paper inside. You can buy fully lined, inter-lined, half and half or completely blank.

I've used a variety of paper with third graders. They've been able to adjust to spiral-bound,
single-subject composition notebooks, and have used them for journals, or as content area
notebooks. Most students were able to use a single, wide-ruled line, a few needed to use two
lines for uppercase, at least for awhile. They've also been able to use Blue Books for short-term
needs.
Most often, we've also had some reams of white, lined paper to use as final copy paper for poems, stories, or projects. The paper format would align with our handwriting program.
Hope that's helpful.

Thank you all. I wondered if I could expect third graders to use notebook paper. The answer appears to be yes!
