How to Make Primary Writing Lines

Happy Tuesday!  Here is another user-requested tutorial!  This one is an absolutely necessity for any primary teacher making their own items for their classroom.

One week on the poll and this option was a hit!  Be sure to go to the Technology Tuesday request form and give me more ideas to add to the poll!

I decided to include three different ways to make primary lines.  To be totally honest, I only ever use the first way, through a font, but you have to pay for the font for commercial use so I want to be sure to include some free options as well!

The fonts from the pictures above can be found here:

The four fonts pictured are:

Now... for the other options (I'll warn you in advance... they're not difficult... but they're definitely not as easy as option #1!)

Note: you can also take a screenshot of the line if you find it easier to copy/paste the picture rather than the table!

For next week's poll I added another option that someone requested: how to make "color by number" activities!  Be sure to vote!


  1. Great tips...so glad we use "regular" lines!!

    1. So lucky! I don't think I would have survived one day in Kindergarten without these lines! I mean, I would have... but my OCD would be off the charts!

  2. Hi,

    I happened to chance upon your blog and found it very interesting!

    We have recently launched a science app that uses augmented reality to enhance classroom teaching. The app has 3D models for kindergarten to grade 12. I thought you might want to check it out and may be review it on your blog, if possible.

    It is a paid app(with a few models free) but in case you are interested in trying it out I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.

    The link to the app is:



    You can also search for the app on the app store as 'Augmenter'.

    Do let me know if you would be interested. I am really Looking forward to your response.

    happy teaching!
