My first grader is begging to learn cursive, and this program seems like a good fit for a younger student.
Amber S on Sep 17, 2018
My 9-yr-old has trouble with letter reversals and I see my 5-yr-old beginning to struggle in similar ways. Vision therapy has resolved many issues for our older daughter, eye doctor suggested that we "retrain" her with cursive. I'm hoping that teaching it FIRST to our kindergartener will help her before she becomes as frustrated as 9-yr-old did with writing, and while I like the look of this font taught in this curriculum, I'm particularly drawn to the clear steps for each letter/number taught.

We are using Spell to Write and Read, so it seemed like something I would like to use for my daughter to learn cursive.

I am teaching my Saturday Bible Student, how to write in cursive because they don't get to learn this in public school.

We want to teach cursive before printing and have heard this is a good curriculum to use.
Elizabeth C on Jan 31, 2018
Used this with a student years ago and it was an AMAZING system.
Patricia C on Nov 6, 2017
A great program I’ve used before! Teaching writing as whole words instead of groups of letters helped my dyslexic child to understand reading and writing better.
Jennifer L H on Nov 1, 2017
Heard about it from other homeschooling moms. And heard this website was good place to buy it. It is cheaper than Amazon.
Megan W on Oct 14, 2017
Recommended by a friend, who let me look at her materials and it was exactly what I was looking for.

needed for kinder class
Harangozo S on Sep 14, 2017
I wanted my son to have a better experience than his sisters at handwriting. After manuscript and many reversals still showing up in my daughters' handwriting...we are all going to learn cursive, and my son gets the opportunity to soar learning cursive first!
Rebecca T on Aug 20, 2017
It's a good supplement to Spell to Write & Read curriculum, which I am using to teach my children
Jennifer C on Aug 14, 2017
A retired Occupational Therapist recommended Loops and Groups for our daughter with Down syndrome. Far to expensive a program but Cursive First uses a similar approach and groups the letters exactly the same at a far less price.

saw on rc yahoo group as a recommendation

hoping to improve my little ones ability to read and write a little easier then using manuscript writing which she is not doing well with
Melissa L on Oct 10, 2016
It seemed like it might have good tips on teaching cursive.

Best program
May N on Aug 20, 2016
We are using Spell to write and Read and I am struggling to teach my daughter the proper way and keep her motivated. I need a guideline and a plan to help me.
Kelly P on Aug 17, 2016
It is what Spell to Write and Read recommends and we had success with it. I like the simplicity of it. My daughter has done well with this.
Dawn S on Jun 28, 2016
I never thought about how and why kids could learn cursive first. I would like to try with my son since I learned too late with my daughter.
Vanessa T on Jun 22, 2016
I have heard great things about it!
Janae B on May 3, 2016
recommended by spell to write and read and other classical conversations families.

My daughter in England told me to.

My grandchildren in Iowa and Pennsylvania are no longer taught cursive writing in school.

I chose this because a friend shared how well it was working for her child.

Cursive First was recommended by two moms in my homeschooling community who are also using Spell to Write and Read. My boys seem really excited to learn cursive so who am I to stop them?!

What is included?
A shopper on Sep 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Its the teachers manual with all the copy sheets (that are master copies that you can reproduce as many times as you need) and phonogram cards that you will need to laminate.
In this book, do letters like 'a,' 'c,' and 'o' all start on the baseline or on the mid-line?
User on Jan 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They begin from the base line and go uphill to the 2'0clock point of the letters and continue . The letter direction cards that come in the pack are great. We used glitter glue on them to make tactile finger tracing cards out of.
Which style of cursive is taught in this book. How is uppercase 'A' written in cursive in the book? If uppercase cursive 'A' looks just like lowercase 'a' but bigger than that is not what i am looking for.
A shopper on Mar 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the upper case A is an enlarged lower case a.

I really like the teaching of the letters, but I don't use her complete process. I'm impressed with how quickly my 6 and 9 year old picked up on it and are able to read cursive within a few lessons. My oldest wants to write her A's in the other way. I told her she can personalize her cursive after she masters the material.
