Beginning Modern Cursive
Category Description for Carson-Dellosa Handwriting Books
These handwriting workbooks provide practice in cursive and manuscript in traditional and modern style. For those who don't know, modern handwriting is a bit more slanted and italic looking than traditional. In each workbook, pages are provided to practice writing each letter in upper and lower case. Grey outlines are given for students to trace, and then plenty of lines are provided for independent writing of the letters. In the beginning books, letters are all that are covered, and a whole page of practice room is dedicated to each letter (or a group of letters). In the other books, after a line or two of writing the letters, students first trace and then independently write whole words and even sentences. Dotted midlines are featured as well as a blank practice page at the end of each book. Rachel S.
