paper headings?

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I'm moving from 3rd to 4th this year which means a big switch in paper! (Yes, that sounds silly, but it is a big deal!)

In third grade we've used a modified version of the ZB paper (2 lines with a dotted line in the middle, a small "space break" between lines) that we created on the computer. There was a line at the very top that said:
Name________________________ Time _____ Date_____

and obviously the kids filled that information in.

In 4th grade they use regular paper... the good ole wide-ruled notebook paper.... My question is, how do 4th graders set up their headings? Is it on the top right side of the paper? Name, date, subject?

It has been soooo llloooonnnnnggggg since I've even used notebook paper or set up a paper not on the computer... I feel so out of it all of a sudden!

Paper Heading

Last year I had my students put name and date on first 2 lines on the left, and subject and page number (if any) on the first 2 lines on the right. Overall, it worked ok.

It's really a matter of what works best for you. I teach my students to write a heading on each page - top right corner.

18 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Name
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Date
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Subject
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (Assignment)

On the upper left corner, they have to write their assigned class number. To help eliminate no name papers, I keep highlighters by the "turn it in baskets" and they have to highlight their name and number.

I know I will have some "handwriting challenged" students this year, so I'd like to start off by easing them in to notebook paper.

The attachment is my version of notebook paper - the top margin is slightly larger than the traditional 1 inch, but the lines are as close to the traditional 7/16" as I could make them. I'm thinking this might be good to help train them in how to set up their papers.

I'm thinking I'll start the year off for the month of September with this paper, and then as students are ready they'll move into notebook paper?

The top margin on a sheet of binder paper is always left blank. That is my space. Students write their heading starting on the first full line beneath the margin. The subject area starts at the top left on the margin line, with the specific assignment written underneath it. Their name goes on the same line as the subject area ending at the right margin line with the date underneath that.

History........................ ...GoldenPoppy
p. 47 # 2-5 all..................7/8/09

I only have my students write on the front of the paper. If they need a second sheet the heading on that page is:

Page 2...........................Gol denPoppy

Then the pages get stapled together.

Here's my method: On the right hand side of the notebook paper, students write their name and number (I assign each child a number which makes filing easier to send home papers), second line they write the date, and then on the third line they write the assignment information, for example - Math (and then the page number, if applicable)

I was going to have my students do it the way I've always learned to do it:

Name Date
Subject Assignment

The name and date are on top of the first blue line, although it really won't matter to me. The name and subject are flush against the left margin and the date and assignment are on the right side.

i agree with PP that it is what is best for YOU as the teacher.. you are the one who has to figure out what subject/page this was done and on what date so you can grade it..

i have heard of what goldengirl does- we call it SAND so the kids remember there are the 4 parts (subj, assign, name and date)

putting a highlighter by the turn in basket is a great idea!!! (note to self: write that one down!) - i also have the kids write "their' number on the top left. i can't count how many times that has saved a nameless paper because they remembered their number.

i had to 'nag' "red line and holes down the left side" a million times.. and i also hung a homemade little poster of a paper heading so they could look up and reference it for the first few weeks....

I have my kids use the upper right hand corner of every paper, even if it has a name line on it. The write their name and classroom number with the date below it.

Thanks for the "SAND" idea. I will use it this year!

The daily reminders for holes on the left sounds familiar! I had kids put their pencils in their writing hands and then hold up their left hand and wave at me. We would chant it and do it every day for the first month.
Most of the students were able to remember and remind those that had difficulty!

Thank you for posting your notebook paper. Each year I struggle with some student's handwriting. This is a great idea.

on a regular 3 hole lined paper with red line on the left side and another on the opposite side, is the right side margin all the way to the end of the line or should it stop where the faint red line is from the opposite side.
