       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

    What's handier than an instructional workbook when you want to learn and practice calligraphy? A card deck. Yes, really! Just set your card up by your paper/pad and you have your alphabet right before your eyes as you practice. This Visual Deck Set provides 50 (4" x 6") color-coded, rounded-edge cards. There are about 20 double-sided instructional cards and then the remaining thirty cards illustrate various "hands" (i.e. fonts for those us more familiar with word processing). Take for instance the Chancery Cursive cards. There is one card which shows the uppercase letters (A-K on front side; L-Z on back side) along with a useful pen angle designation. There's another card for the lowercase letters. The instructional cards include material such as preparing and positioning the work surface, understanding the broad pen, flourishes and borders, designing a quote, and more. The set of cards in its handy, flip-lid box also includes a professional calligraphy fountain pen with two interchangeable nibs and three ink cartridges (black, blue, and red). ~ 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
