Half-cut composition books
One of my elementary schools supplies these half-cut composition books to students for writing in their journals. A third-grade teacher explained that his students seem more relaxed about writing because they feel that they don't need to write so much. The same teacher commented that many students actually write more, because they seem to feel less pressured.
Our local technical skills high school cuts the books, for a very low price.
