DK Workbooks: Handwriting
These workbooks can be a good introduction for more traditional print and cursive writing. There are only two books in this series, so Level K could be used for any grade at which you want to introduce printing and the 3rd grade book can be used for whatever grade you want to introduce cursive. Books are black and white and answer keys are found in the back of each book. Each book is 47 pages and includes 200 gold stars for rewards; Check off the pages in the front of the book.
The Printing book includes lowercase and uppercase letters, numbers and number words, copying words, writing simple sentences, copywork, coloring, and drawing. The letter formation is ball and stick and begins teaching straight and curved strokes, then tracing dotted letters on 1/2" lines, then writing letters and words on lines. Cursive begins with lowercase and uppercase letter formation, strokes, between letters, copywork, and writing your own creations. Only 3 pages of lowercase practice and one page of uppercase practice is done on 1/2" lines with dotted midline, all other practice is done simply by writing on a line. ~ Donna
