Product Description:

Two-sided laminated strip is 11"x 2.75". It's perfect as a quick reference for those learning cursive. One side shows a line of the upper case alphabet with a line of the lower case alphabet below. On the back are the upper-case letters with arrows showing the strokes in order (numbered 1, 2, 3, 4). All letters are shown with the dotted half- lines. ~ Sara

Publisher Description:

Old cursive style abounds with flourishes and loops, which is not practical for the beginning writer or for today's fast-paced life style. The New American Cursive® alphabet was developed with the beginning writer in mind:

Unnecessary strokes eliminated -- NAC® has from 5 to 31 fewer strokes than the current five most used cursive styles."T" & "F" capitals are printed forms to reduce confusion between them; printed capital "Z" is easier & more fun to make."M" & "N" have less retracing, allowing the writer to move forward on the page more fluidly. Aesthetically balanced length on the upper and lower extensions of the f, g, j, p, q, y & z make it easierto learn.

NAC natural-right slant is easier for beginners and left-handers. If the slant is too far right it can be difficult for lefties. Writing absolutely vertically is tiring and can slow down the writing.

Category Description for New American Cursive:

Handwriting with a bit of a different approach will teach your child cursive skills beginning in first grade. There are fewer strokes, a natural right slant, and the strokes are simplified. The philosophy is that students have the motor skills to write cursive at the first grade level, and when we wait to teach them at about third grade, they literally go back to the speed of first grade writing as they transition from print to cursive.

Each book includes a 7-page teaching guide, followed by instruction and exercises, illustrations and practice sheets with quotes and Bible verses (a secular version of Book II uses quotes from famous Americans in lieu of Bible verses). Book II and III also include handwriting evaluations, review of paper placement and pencil position, review of letter and number formations, and progress reports and test pages. The books have an uncluttered, visual appeal with uncramped space to practice. Since the books are intended for elementary grades, the spacing is very important.

'Mr. Meerkat' guides your child through each book as he shows the way to draw each letter and encourages creativity. Before the 1940s, children were taught cursive in the first grade. This course provides the opportunity to use this simple technique to bring back the art of handwriting. - Donna

These materials span grades and include both instruction and practice.

My son will be learning cursive this year and this product works better as a reference guide than a large chart in our home.

I think learning cursive is important and my daughter wanted a guide that was neat and tidy and my handwriting is neither.
