Publisher Description:

A Reason for Handwriting Level D Student Worktext includes 32 weekly lessons, which each provide 10-15 minutes of daily practice. On days 1 - 3, students write letters and words from the week's Scripture verse. On day 4, students transcribe the entire verse on a sheet of practice paper. On the final day, students select a Border Sheet from the back of the book, and write the week's Scripture verse in their best cursive handwriting, then use their creativity to color the design on their Border Sheet.

Note: The weekly verse in A Reason For Handwriting Level D corresponds with the same week's theme verse in A Reason For Spelling Level D, thus reinforcing the Scripture content of each lesson.

Category Description for A Reason for Handwriting:

An appealing, full-color Christian handwriting program that provides instruction and practice in handwriting (traditional style) with about 30 lessons per level (except for K which has 49). Each level has a letter designation, with a whole book for transition from manuscript to cursive in between B and C. The Transition book contains content from both Book B (print) and Book C (cursive) and you can use in place of either Book B or Book C, depending on your student's needs (see PDF sample for more information on using the Transition Book). Starting in Book C, all handwriting is cursive. In the more advanced levels, discussion questions accompany the weekly Bible verse. One more change to note is the height of the lines; they are smaller in the cursive section of the Transition Book or Book C (3/8") than in the previous books (manuscript books have 5/8" lines). The manuscript and cursive border sheets are also revised, and are now included with the workbooks. These nicely bordered lined papers challenge students to write their scripture verses on them "in their best handwriting." (Scripture verses are taken from the Living Bible.) The student desk card shows manuscript and cursive letters on a personal-sized card, or you can put the big letters up on the wall using the alphabet wall sheets. One comprehensive teacher's guide covers the whole series. Please note that sets are also available, which include the student book and teacher guide at a discount. ~ Melissa

These materials are graded specifically and include both instruction and practice.

So far I have used Reason for Handwriting with my seven oldest children. It is a motivating way to practice handwriting, and every week my students have a Scripture page to share with a friend, neighbor, or extended family member.
Andrea W on Apr 21, 2021
My kids love A Reason for Handwriting, plenty of extra practice sheets for the kid who keep forgetting how to write certain letters. I love it because it's open and go, you don't even need the teachers manual. we use it 4 days a week could be stretched to 5 and the last day of the week they get to pick a sheet to write their verse on and color

Short daily handwriting practice that is effective in learning cursive but not burdensome. My kids display the end-of-the-week framed scripture verse that they complete.

I wanted my son to get more practice with cursive handwriting, and instead of just requiring him to do his work in cursive, I think it would be helpful for him to have the guide lines for him to use.

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!

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: My understanding was that the cursive books do not change in skills, but address different books of the bible. My 4th grader is starting with D without having used any other books in this series. (She learned cursive with a different curriculum last year).
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!

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.

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
