    This DNealian handwriting helps children ease into cursive. It starts right at the beginning of connecting, with no manuscript practice at all, so you will probably want your children to have had exposure to DNealian manuscript handwriting before jumping right in. After showing how to connect each letter, kids practice joining small groups of letters together. Then, two pages are devoted to each letter of the Alphabet. 14 words beginning with that letter are provided, with room to practice each word twice. A tip in the bottom right hand corner shows how a common connection should look. After these pages, there are 26 groups of challenge words for kids to practice with. Then, they write out the months of the year and days of the week. Four blank lined pages are provided for more practice at the end of the book. - Melissa

    Mrs. Letz Farmer and her daughter Laura have teamed up again to help children learn cursive - and maintain a cheerful attitude while doing it. Somewhat similar to their first book in format, this book adopts the same encouraging instruction. It begins with lowercase letters for ease, introducing different strokes that can be used to make different letters. Several appropriately named characters represent these strokes and appear on related pages to offer tips. Bible verses appear on some pages, used for practice in reading cursive and identifying letters. Random words lining the bottom of the page are used for writing practice. The book then moves into lowercase letter combinations and finally words. When students are comfortable with their lowercase letters, its time to move on to the capitals. As the letters are introduced, students begin practicing by writing printed Bible verses in cursive, and then a cursive verse back into manuscript. Here again on these pages, there are random words included for additional writing practice for the featured letter. Any difficult letter combination connections are featured with practice lines so students become comfortable with them. Grammar skills and alphabetizing are also incorporated into the lessons, which is a nice extra touch. - Melissa

    (description by publisher - stay tuned for our own!) This workbook briefly reviews manuscript writing before introducing the cursive basic strokes, letters, joinings, and numerals. Students trace and write letters and words and write sentences below cursive models. Cursive joining models on every page help students understand how to connect the letters.

    Skill Builders are such handy little books! This one is for those students who need some cursive practice without feeling as if they are doing a ton of handwriting. Students see an example, trace a lighter version, and then practice on lines. The books are small (6x9) and user-friendly, the sort of thing a student can do a bit of when waiting for a turn with Mom or Dad, or as a warm up for a writing or grammar lesson. It begins with letter formation, then goes to single words, and then sentences. Use it to reinforce letter connections and combinations. Colorful illustrations may appeal to some learners, but they are not imperative to the lessons in my opinion. The style is a contemporary cursive or what most of us would call just normal cursive. 80pp, pb ~Sara

    (description by publisher - stay tuned for our own!) The Logic of English Rhythm of Handwriting program develops fluid handwriting in students of all ages. Letters are taught using a multi-sensory approach that begins with large-motor movements. By learning how to form each letter on a handwriting chart using the pointer finger, students are able to master the motions before advancing to writing the letter with a pencil. Clear instructions provide students with an understanding of how to write each letter and where it is placed on the lines. Shortened, bold instructions emphasize the rhythmic motions needed to develop fluid handwriting. Letters are grouped by initial stroke in order to simplify the learning process and encourage the development of muscle memory. Introductory pages are filled with tips and resources for the teacher, allowing the Rhythm of Handwriting Student Book to stand alone as a course for teaching handwriting. Additional Rhythm of Handwriting products and resources are also available from The Logic of English. Once students have mastered fourteen letters, they are taught how to connect letters at the baseline to form words. This lesson includes enlarged sample words for students to practice "writing" with their index finger in order to develop a kinesthetic feel of the smoothness of writing words in cursive. After learning the lowercase letters which end on the midline, students are taught explicitly how to connect letters with a dip connector. Each lesson includes a variety of line sizes so that students can determine which size paper is most comfortable for their hand. The sounds for each of the letters are included to aid teachers in introducing the A-Z phonograms. This program is suitable for students of all ages who desire to master the cursive style of handwriting.
