Product Description:

This unique software product allows you to design your own handwriting program! The software lets you print practice worksheets in cursive and manuscript in any of these popular printing styles - manuscript, manuscript-simple, manuscript-simplified, modern manuscript (like D'Nealian), Italic, PLMR (similar to Palmer), VIC (Victoria-Australia), QLD (Queensland-Australia), and NSW (New South Wales - Australia). You decide on the following: what letters or words will be printed (so students can trace/write their own name, stories about themselves, and things they are interested in - or you can present them with letters or words they are struggling to write); letter height from 1/4 inch to 2 inches; whether to print the letters in dots, dashes, or solid lines; and, whether to print directional arrows next to the letter. There are over 15 fonts to choose from and Spanish, math, money, and clock characters are included. Font size, dot density, and shading is all adjustable. Color printing is supported, so that you can make top and bottom guidelines one color, and the optional dashed center line a different color. Clip art images, which can also be printed in color, are included to add interest. The software is very easy to use, allowing you to make exciting worksheets and print them out in just a matter of minutes. System requirements for Version 5.0: Windows 98/2000/XP/Vista; MAC OS 8.6 or newer (OS X older than 10.6; NOT 10.7/Lion or higher); 16 MB Ram, 20 MB hard disk.

Mac users pay attention! I did not give heed to the note on the RR product description that clearly says which Mac operating systems will/won't work with this program (I didn't even know what Operating System we had on our computer) Didn't notice it until I had already put the CD-ROM in my computer to try and use it rendering it non-returnable I'm sure the program is great for those who have a compatible computer

I love this product and so do my kids! It is wonderful to be able to make handwriting worksheets using text that interests my children I also enjoy being able to include a piece of clip art or a photo to help motivate them My kids even enjoy making their own worksheets giving them practice in typing and handwriting I also like being able to change the size and style of the font and being able to include starting dots and arrows to illustrate the handwriting strokes Highly recommended!

I wish I'd bought this ages ago! We have now had this program for a month and it is exactly what I wanted It would work for every grade level! I am using it for a 4 5 7 8 grader There is a good selection of handwriting styles available on this program with three levels of dots to trace as well as shaded letters in varying darkness It was simple to install and intuitive in its use We use it now for practicing memorization pieces and at the same time brushing up on our handwriting skills

StartWrite has been one the best investments in my children's handwriting I have purchased I use this program to have my children trace passages quotes or narrations from the work we do in other subjects It has been invaluable in teaching cursive and proper letter formation My oldest child has used this program for three years now and has beautiful cursive handwriting--better than most adults He now no longer traces but has the perfect slant and letter formation that tracing the typewritten cursive promoted My other children use this also and I can see they are well on their way to the same result This program saved me countless hours in the early K-1 years when young children need to do repetitive work as well as in the older elementary years as a fine-motor conditioning tool to train mind-hand coordination I give this my highest recommendation!

This is the most useful homeschool product we own Startwrite is a great handwriting program but its usefulness doesn't stop there I use it to print out vocabulary words to define spelling words to copy and I have made simple forms for science and history One of my favorite uses is printing out lined paperThis program is easy to use though it takes a little time to learn all of its features I like that you can make the lines the size you want This has been helpful because my son writes better with lines that are a little larger than average This is a great program It is well worth the money I bought this program two years ago and I don't think that a week has gone by that I haven't used it I highly recommend Startwrite
