Wide- vs. College-ruled paper

Our students are required to bring in wide-ruled paper. So often they bring in college-ruled.

What do you do in these cases?

Since I taught 5th grade last year, I held onto the college-ruled paper and handed it out toward the end of the year. I had quite a few students who wrote so small anyway, but... Argh! Wide-ruled, people! *lol*

Wide ruled or college ruled

Our list says wide ruled but honestly I find that it really doesn't make much difference so I just let them use whatever they have. If I find notebooks or loose-leaf on sale and it is only in college rule I buy it anyway and we use it.

I am usually just happy if my kids bring in paper... of any kind! I let them use either even though our list says wide ruled. They are 5th graders, they should be able to handle little lines...

I agree - You have paper?! - YES!
I usually send home a stock up please list around Winter Break - I am still getting used to not calling it Christmas Break! Many of my students are willing to share too.

Wide-ruled, college-ruled, plain white... I'm don't care, I'm just happy they wrote something on paper!

Seriously, most of my kids can handle college-ruled so I just let it slide unless it's one of those who can't handle it. I had one last year who could not write on small little lines, so I made a trade with him.

I personally hate college ruled so I "educate" my students. I take a piece of each kind and show them the difference. I coax them into thinking wide ruled is better. Over time most of them switch to it

I agree with those that say at least they have paper. I have fought the battle too, but it all comes down to, at least they have paper!
