    Providing both instruction and practice in traditional cursive, this one, multi-age volume uses straight-forward teaching the IEW way. Stroke order is emphasized (c, i, loop, and hill starters for lowercase; top circle, top check, drop down, slash up, curvy top, salute, from the floor, and backwards loop starters for uppercase) as well as the importance of consistent practice. Tasks 1-12 take the student through the lowercase letters; tasks 13-24, the capital letters. Tasks 25-32 provide inspiring quotes as copywork. Quotes are taken from a wide variety of persons including Dr. Seuss, Socrates, and Audrey Hepburn (but no Christian content). Lines are 1/2" inch wide with dotted middles but change to 5/16" inch with dotted middles partway through the copywork. Includes reproducible extra sheets with 5/16" inch lines. Several downloads accompany the purchase of this course: reproducible practice sheets and two audio talks by Andrew Pudewa ("Paper and Pen"; "On Writing"). Includes a cardstock sheet with a sample alphabet and a list of the starters. 114 pgs, spiral-bound ~ Janice

    If you can train yourself in the habit, keeping a nature journal offers not only the opportunity to continually hone artistic skills, but also provides ample opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, develop a deeper appreciation for nature, enhance penmanship and writing abilities and become a precious keepsake for years to come. This guide takes students lesson-by-lesson through developing their own nature journal and building the skills they'll need to capture examples of nature's beauty. Created by Barry Stebbing, author of the How Great Thou Art courses, these lessons are formatted similarly with short, easy-to-read lessons and a related assignment. There are 47 lessons total, the first segment focusing on assignments that can be done in the classroom, and later assignments which students will get to head outdoors to do. Lessons include designing the journal cover; learning how to appropriately frame the page; creating various tones in green and brown, and drawing specific objects or scenes such as onions, vines or tree trunks, landscapes, night scenes, farm animals, feathers, insects and much more. The lessons are illustrated with a variety of related drawings (both color and black-and-white) by Barry, some of which serve as examples to copy, and others to provide inspiration or examples for students' own drawing. The last piece of the book provides several blank journal pages with lines, a space for an inspiring quote and blank areas for drawing. You'll need a few specific supplies to complete the lessons, including a hardbound journal, a legal pad, a rubber band, colored pencils, a drawing pen, a writing pen, glue stick, tape, washable markers, a #6 watercolor brush (to use with the markers) and semi-gloss paper. Especially if you're not already emphasizing art in your curriculum, a course in nature journaling can provide your students a rewarding, creative tie-in to your science, English or even handwriting program – and get them outdoors to enjoy that sunshine! – Jess

      Meeting resistance when it comes time for handwriting practice? These themed practice books can save the day. Each workbook has 40 reproducible practice pages with built-in motivation. There is a short review at the beginning on how to form the letters, but this is more for practice than initial instruction. The pages start with 3 target words from the quote/joke/fact for the student practices writing a few times. They then carefully copy the entire selection. At the end of the workbook, they can cut off the bottom of the pages to make into a stapled book of their handwriting practice and end up with a fun book of quotes/jokes/facts.

      Wacky Facts: includes things like world records, interesting trivia, cool animal facts and more. Available in print or cursive, depending on grade level. It can take only 5-10 minutes per day to get in some handwriting practice that your child won’t dread. They may even ask to do more than a page a day! 48 pb; reproducible for home/classroom use. Modern style ~ Lisa/Sara

       You’re never too old, or young, to begin learning to write calligraphy, and this book is a great step-by-step product to get you started. You can use alongside the Getty-Dubay Handwriting series for K-8 (beginning with 2nd grade) or as a stand-alone program to learn the art of calligraphy. This 64-page book is the collaboration of Inga Dubay and a group of Portland State teachers over the course of 3 years and includes instruction for writing with edged pens, italic calligraphy, and the history of the art form. 13 introductory pages explain what you will be doing in the remaining pages. There are 20 worksheets for use with a 3.5 mm nib and 9 worksheets for use with 2mm nib. 17 historical charts show the progression of letter formation since the Roman era. Ruled line pages and blank historical charts are found in the back and are the only pages that may be copied. Pages follow a progression; students practice strokes, lowercase letter families, formal capital letters, then copy Hindu-Arabic numerals, poems, quotes, Greek & Latin root words, and 50 most used English words. Use what you have learned to make beautiful cards & letters to give as thoughtful gifts.

      There are some great resources at the author’s website, handwritingsuccess.com. Helpful videos will take you through the worksheets in the book and a worksheet generator lets you make your own practice worksheets in both the 3.5mm and 2mm nib sizes.  

      The author asks that you, “Slow down, enjoy the process of calligraphy, and fall in love with letters along the way!” ~ Donna

    Originally discovered in a copybook kept by young George Washington, the Rules of Civility and Decent Behavior has been a popular copywork resource for homeschool families over the years, including my own. This new edition is a delightful and practical resource for homeschool families. Containing each of the 110 maxims, this workbook dedicates one page per rule. The rule is listed at the top of the page, followed by single lines to copy the rule. At the bottom of the page, students are encouraged to paraphrase the rule in their own words on the subsequent single lines. While most rules are unchanged from the original, some have modernized spelling and conventions to allow students to copy proper forms. Additional explanations or definitions are included with a few of the rules to aid understanding. A complete list of all rules is included in the back of the book. Excellent, inexpensive resource for handwriting practice. 125 pgs, pb. ~ Deanne

    For older students who did not learn cursive in the early grades, this is an instruction and practice book all in one. There are tips for posture, holding a pen, paper placement and even some good hints for the lefties. The font is simple, so if a child has had some cursive at some point, it should not be too conflicting to use this book. For example, the capital Q looks like this typed one, not like a 2. The workbook starts with pages of upper and lower-case letters. Then it moves to letter combos, days, months, common abbreviations, and onto some fabulous quotations to practice as copywork which come from historical documents and classic literature! It's very well done for a broad audience. Reproducible for classroom/home use only. Perforated, 62 pgs, pb. ~Sara
