Category Description for Pentime Handwriting Series
This program is designed to teach children handwriting with a minimum of assistance. Eight black and white workbooks help students master the skill of manuscript writing, transition into cursive, and continue to build cursive skills using smaller and smaller lines. In the first workbook, students focus on writing the individual letters on wide lines with a dotted midline. The correct strokes are shown (and numbered) for each letter along with plenty of space for children to practice. The second book continues practice of upper and lowercase letters but adds words and sentences as well. In place of stroke guides, a dot on each letter shows children where to start forming the letter. The third book (Transition) reviews manuscript for 35 pages and then jumps into cursive handwriting for the remaining 60 pages of the book, where students learn the strokes for individual cursive letters and practice connecting them. The rest of the series allows children to fully master cursive writing as they continually practice by writing the letters and copying longer and longer paragraphs on increasingly smaller lines (rulings gradually decrease from 1/2" in Grade 3 to 5/16" in Grade 8). Paragraphs range from fun sentences to Bible verses (close to the ASV version) to excerpts from essays on nature. Captions in the older grades provide interesting facts, and pretty border sheets to color are scattered throughout. - Steph
Customer Reviews5.0 / 5.02 ReviewsPentime is worth every penny!The Pentime Cursive series has excellent practice using traditional cursive. The blanks are nice and big for students to feel comfortable using. We tried many other workbooks before this series, and Pentime has very good practice on individual letters and words. Pentime also has useful information in paragraph form to copy.

over 2 years agoI use Pentime Cursive book three with my five year old son and we love it I taught him cursive using Can Do Cursive but I prefer to use this book for practice and copywork because it has an older fashioned script and I like for my son to be able to read and copy form this form even though he uses a modern script He enjoys the animal friends and loves to read what they say in the word bubbles I love the copywork exercises and the good values the book stresses I will definitely be using this series for all of my children!August 31, 2008

It is much nicer than mine, so I am buying this book for myself :) I can't have my 8 year old writing nicer than me.How many lessons are in a book?BEST ANSWER: They are not numbered at all, but they are about 42 two page parts, one page type introduces letters with practice and the second page type is copy work of a passage/paragraph or poem. A student needing less could do 1 page per day and have about 84 days, an advanced writer could complete the two page spread. There are just a handful of single pages by themselves.
