I have had the students cut an interesting 9x 12 section out of a newspaper (with ads or pictures included with lettering), tear it in half, glue half to a piece of paper and draw the other half with colored pencils and black pens. Its a good assignment if having a sub.
Also, I know a friend who uses pieces of newspaper to have the kids practice Calligraphy lettering because it keeps everything lined up well and doesn't waste alot of paper.
