    Just as literacy suffered in the last century when the school systems abandoned phonics instruction, many people contend that handwriting suffered by the same educational system's insistence on beginning with manuscript handwriting. "Cursive first" is their rallying cry! Wanda Sanseri became convinced of this approach and has encouraged it as part of her Spell to Write and Read program. The Cursive First program was developed by Elizabeth FitzGerald to be used either with the SWR program or as a stand alone program of handwriting instruction.

    The "program" is comprised of a Teacher's Manual, Practice Sheets, and the Cursive Phonogram Card Set. The Teacher's Manual is designed to convince you of the merits of starting with cursive. But it also includes information for preparing your student, specific "how-to," directions for using the Practice Sheets/Card Set and a "troubleshooting guide" how to detect visual and perceptual problems. The reproducible (for families/classroom) Practice Sheets get quickly down to the business of practice no cutesy graphics. Lowercase letters are taught separately from uppercase and connections are taught from the very beginning in the natural context of multi-letter phonograms. Although solid and dotted line models are provided, the student is quickly weaned from tracing to more active writing utilizing narrow ruled, dotted lines for practice. The Cursive Phonogram Card Set (yellow cardstock, each page to be cut into fourths) includes instructional dialogue for writing the phonograms on one side and a sample of cursive writing on the other. Both numerals and the first 26 phonograms are included. Laminating these would preserve their use through multiple children.

    Right-handed or left-handed, simple shapes, finger tracing, color-coding, catchy repetitive phrases and lots of practice make this single handwriting instruction book quite unique. Use it with big kids to littles. It’s not juvenile looking, but also without a complicated design. Using the horizontal format with a top spiral at the top, work through the pages from the front, then flip over and work through the back sides. The four basic shapes are color coded: orange ovals, lime loops, silver swings and mauve mounds. Finger tracing builds muscle memory. Saying the task steps of a task as you perform them helps reinforce new motor skills. And of course, there is pencil work tracing: inside bubble letters; writing letters; connecting letters, followed by sentences. Each lesson reviews the 4 main shapes. Additionally unique, the letters are grouped by the 4 basic shapes, not in alphabetical order: a good option for visual learners. It’s just well done. Whether your child would benefit from these methods, has never mastered cursive, or is a more traditional learner, this is as good a fit. Writing lines are .75” with dotted midline. Each lesson (10 total) can be completed in one 45-60-minute session, or in (up to 4) shorter, weekly lessons spread. 11”x 8.5”, 111 pgs, pb. ~ Sara

    Meeting resistance with handwriting practice? Here are 40 reproducible practice pages with built in motivation – your student is learning a joke they can then share with others! Isn’t that clever? There is a short review at the beginning on how to form the letters, but this is more for practice than initial instruction. Each practice page starts with 3 words the student copies a few times. These words will be used in the joke written below. They then carefully copy the joke or riddle and the answer. For every joke they copy, there is even a bonus joke to share! It’s so cute. The jokes are silly and goofy, just what kids like! Why do flamingos lift one leg when they stand? If they lifted both legs, they would fall down! The 3 practice words for this one are flamingos, stand and would. Once your student has done all of their writing practice, you can cut the jokes off the bottom part of the page and staple them to make a little joke and riddles book: there is a cover sheet in the back to color. It can take only 5-10 minutes per day to get in some cursive practice that your child won’t dread. They may even ask to do more than a page a day! (Modern style) 48 pp, pb. ~ Sara

    This handwriting workbook is good for younger students just learning cursive, or for an older child who has never learned. Learn grip and paper placement, then get busy training your hand to make the swooping and looping shapes. Author Diana Hanbury King goes about this very simply at first, then groups lower case letters by commonalities. There is plenty of practice space, but no dotted-half-line like other handwriting courses. There is a slight slant to the right for right handed students. The letters are traditional and not overly fussy. The capital Q looks like a 2. There is tracing and copying, and even writing with your eyes closed! Numbers are included. First you’ll write words, then 3 words, then capital letters, capitalized words and eventually, short sentences. In the back, practice writing names, days of the week, months, dates, abbreviations, greetings and closings for friendly and business letters, holidays, book titles, and finally, some vocabulary words related to the 4 core subject areas. A page or 2 a day for practice will help develop your child’s cursive. The book has a stapled binding and lies nice and flat. 89 pgs, pb, non-reproducible. ~ Sara

    A simple handwriting workbook from Christian Light Publications that not only provides practice in cursive writing, but presents interesting facts about birds, bugs, and butterflies as well. There are 72 lessons included, which take between 15-20 minutes each to complete. Designed to provide practice after students have already mastered letter formation, the book reinforces skills by having them write lower and upper case letters and number words one to ten. They also copy the twenty-third Psalm; write short sentences about birds, bugs, and butterflies; and copy simple nature poems. Black and white illustrations accompany the informational tidbits, and all the writing lines have dotted midlines. The book opens up from the top instead of from side to side, and teacher's notes are provided in a small font on the bottom of the worksheets. A great workbook for practicing cursive. 72 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    Have you ever tried sneaking vegetables into your meatloaf? This book is like sneaking a geography lesson into handwriting practice! As your student works their way through the alphabet, they are practicing lower and upper case letters, a city name, several words that begin with that letter and sentences about the city, including naming the country containing the initial city. Dotted lines to follow are helpful models before children try on their own. Fun facts follow and students are encouraged to write a few original sentences. A is for Athens, B is for Beijing, C for Copenhagen, etc. Illustrations are charming and vibrant. Encourage exploration of the various cities after completing 4 pages of cursive practice. Your students may even look forward to seeing what city tomorrow will bring! 109pp, pb. ~ Sara
