If you love the Italic Handwriting Series by Getty and Dubay, but would like a bit more practice, this product is just what you're looking for. The CD is composed of practice pages that you can use in conjunction with all of the workbooks, Levels A through G. They are meant to be used as an introduction to the workbook pages, or as a review for those students who need a bit more practice, but they are in no way replacements for the workbooks, which is where students learn the proper letter-forms. The CD contains a PDF file, so you need Acrobat Reader (which is included on the CD) to view and print the pages. The CD consists of 50-60 half-sheet worksheets for each level, and each worksheet identifies which page in the actual workbook it is meant to go along with. Since it's just a half-page worksheet, you may think there's not that much extra practice (two handwriting lines per page in Book A and twelve lines in Book G), but you can print out each worksheet as many times as you'd like to give your student the amount of practice they need. This is a great supplement to the actual workbooks, especially for those students who struggle to perfect their handwriting. Rachel




Category Description for Italic Handwriting (Getty-Dubay):

Mom's horrible handwriting inspired us to use an italic handwriting program with our kids. It's difficult not to produce at least legible writing in Italics. Another plus is that manuscript flows into cursive - letters don't completely change, they just join. Not only does this seem sensible to us, but the many compliments the children have received on their handwriting have further encouraged us in this approach. (Children begin moving into cursive writing in Level C.) The last level gets into calligraphy toward the end. From there, follow up with a good calligraphy book for Jr. High/High School and continue handwriting as an art form! Instruction Manual applies to all levels.




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

I am an upper school teacher at a classical charter school and sadly have many students entering our program from traditional public school whose handwriting is absolutely illegible. Digital practice sheets is a perfect fit for me to print out supplemental worksheets!

I used this handwriting program starting in the 1980's. It is a wonderful and simply beautiful style of readable handwriting for kids to learn.

I have wanted to teach Getty-Dubay italic handwriting to my special needs students for quite some time.

Great Extra Practice
My son (kinder) finished Book A but wasn't ready to move onto Book B. He is working through the Blackline Masters pages for Book A now. They are a good review, but I wish I had purchased them sooner so he could have alternated (Book A page followed by the BLM page). My daughter (3rd grade) is doing just that with Book C. She has only recently started the cursive italic section and the BLM pages are great for enforcing what she's learned in the lesson pages. She does the lesson page one day and the BLM page the following day.

They are less interesting than the lesson pages from the Getty Dubay books (no pictures) but are all half-sheets (with 2 printed to a page--as far as I've seen with what we've used). Each sheet has information about which page number (or numbers in some cases) it corresponds to in the lesson book. They also can't replace the lesson pages (in my opinion) because there is very little help on these pages (in the forms of arrows, etc). I don't find any of this to be a negative, but just maybe worth knowing for others before they buy.

The files are all pdfs so I was able to copy them directly from the CD to my computer for use when I need them.

Previously, a child would complete the handwriting worksheet and that was it. If they didn't do well then the had to try to write the letters on a separate sheet of paper; that made things difficult because there was no guidance for them. Now I am able to print extra pages for my children to practice letters that they are struggling with.
I have multiple children, so having a collection of blackline from all books on one cd is very helpful.
The spacing is good as well. The guidance of each letter is skill level.
