The primary composition book is a notebook used by students for formal and creative writing. Traditionally, composition books include 100 sheets of paper and guides for writing the alphabet. They are available at retailers such as Staples, Office Depot and Walmart.
Mead claims the composition books are especially useful for helping students to learn how to write creative stories because children have the space to draw illustrations on the same page. The notebook features a line width that allows for optimal pencil control and redline cues to help position letters on the baseline. Walmart states that the product abides by Zaner-Bloser, McDoughal Littell and DNealian handwriting methods.
