Keeps writing simple
A simple approach to keeping fluency of cursive with your childs writing. My child's penmanship is absolutely beautiful and I love watching him take the time to create each letter in its unique fashion. We will continue to use A Reason for Handwriting until we complete the series of books.

I have used several of the "Reason for Handwriting" books with my children They love the simple layout and I love the Scriptures taught through writing None of my children have ever complained about doing handwriting while using these simple yet colorful and fun books

We are using the Reason for Handwriting Level D workbook for my 3rd grader this year We chose Level D since she already had done one year of cursive writing At first I was a little unsure about her ability to write on such small lines (1 cm from top to bottom) but after a few lessons she transitioned quite painlessly to the smaller writing The layout of these workbooks is very straightforward and easy for children to follow Each week�s work is divided into small segments: �Day One � �Day Two � �Day Three � or �Day Four� On the fifth day the student is allowed to pick an attractive border sheet from the back of the book on which to write the full memory verse in cursive They can then color this and share it with someone I thought this was such a great idea�the students practice their best handwriting and share wonderful messages from the Bible at the same time This gives students a real motivation for putting forth their best effort We did not use the teacher�s manual for this program�we were rather busy already and knew we wouldn�t have time for the extra activities Besides my daughter just needed an uncomplicated way to practice her handwriting on a daily basis and this workbook fit our needs quite nicely She rarely complains about doing her handwriting�the daily work is not time consuming at all and it has really helped her self-confidence with her penmanship Since we just use the workbook the only teacher preparation required is providing the pencils and the workbook Occasionally she needs me to show her how to make a particularly tricky stroke but most of it she is able to do independently This book is great for visual learners�there is a colorful picture and a discussion question to complement each week�s memory verse These workbooks are a good value�for $10 you get a full school year�s worth of penmanship practice memory verses and opportunities for sharing compiled into one handy book

cursive practice for 6th grader that started cursive in 5th grade.
andrew w on Sep 20, 2018
I like neat, tidy books with realistic illustrations and clear handwriting practice sections. I also like individual letter practice, along with full sentences as well. Furthermore, my children love the opportunity to complete the illustrated letters in the back and send them in the mail often with a response!

It is enough to get the job done but not too much to overwhelm them.

How different are books D and E. My children are older, but used C this year. I am wondering if I can skip to E since they will be middle school. Thoughts?

BEST ANSWER: D and E are very similar. You could use book E without having completed book D.
Is there a description telling what is added in each book for someone starting out homeschooling?
Mo1567 on Jun 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have used this from K - 4 with my child. The beginning books are basic manuscript and then the "T" book transitions to cursive. After that each book is cursive throughout the series. I believe the verses used may progressively get longer in each book. If you check out the publisher website you maybe be able to find more information about the series. Hope this helps!

Are all 26 letters covered in book D?
A shopper on Apr 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. All the letters are reviewed one at a time. It does not go in order though. And there is only one line of practice for the letter on days 1-4. More emphasis is out on writing words. If they are just learning letters a lower level is better for that. For example, lesson 1, day one, letter is is practiced on one line. There is no direction on how to form the strokes. Day two, letter g practice is provided. Day three, letter u is practiced. Day four is the scripture practice with many words. In summary, this book is best for those who know how to form each letter already and just need further practice with words. Hope this helps!
