How to Write with Word Cards

  • Handwriting Paper– Notebook paper’s first cousin. I like to print my own using Start Write software. I can have my younger kids do dictation and copywork on this type of paper.
  • Engineering Paper– Another close relative, engineering paper makes a mathematician out of anyone!
