Product Description:

Publisher Description:

This workbook is for third grade students or those working at that level.

  • Cursive Warm-Ups facilitate an easy transition from printing to cursive
  • Lesson plans incorporate letter review with words and sentences
  • Activity pages combine handwriting instruction with paragraph, poem, composition, and language arts activities
Category Description for Cursive Handwriting - Grade 3:

Teaches lower case and upper case cursive letters. Handwriting instruction progresses from words and sentences to various language arts activities including paragraphs, poems, letters and compositions. Includes introduction to keyboard symbols.

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

Category Description for Handwriting Without Tears:

Providing a tactile, hands-on approach to handwriting, this approach works well for many types of students.

It is particularly helpful for children who are left-handed children or those who need a more interactive approach to learning. Children who struggle with motor skills or experience cognitive difficulties will also reap great benefits from this program. Unique to this program, practice pages use a two-horizontal-line format rather than the three-horizontal-line format typically found in writing programs, cursive has no slant and letters are formed using a very simple single-stroke, and it uses a multisensory approach to teach. Teaching and practice sessions are short (10-15 minutes), without a lot of meaningless busy work.

Each level of Handwriting without Tears consists of a workbook and teacher guide.

Consumable Student workbooks have horizontal pages in Kindergarten through Grade 2. Grade 3 and up offers vertical pages. Workbooks may be used separately, although at the early levels parents of struggling writers may find the Teacher Guides extremely valuable.

Newly revised in 2018, the Teacher Guides provide additional teaching instruction and support, while the Student Books provide more writing practice for each lesson. While some of the content is the same from the 2013 version, the expanded content means the two editions are not compatible without considerable parental/teacher modification (depending on lesson and level). Please note, the Spanish Student Books are also now updated to 2018 editions. There are currently no Spanish Teacher Guides available. English Teacher Guides provide the overall teaching philosophy, techniques and applicable multi-sensory activities, but do not provide the daily lesson plans.

Teacher Guides include:

  • an overview of the program
  • handwriting instruction
  • the stages of learning and scope and sequence
  • teaching guidelines
  • weekly and daily schedules for each unit
  • instructions on proper posture
  • paper and pencil skills

Following these helpful "how to" sections are lessons corresponding to each page in the student book. Each lesson includes a reduced student page, lesson objective and introduction, lesson plans and enrichment, ELL (English Language Learner) support and Cross Curricular suggestions. The back of each teacher guide includes multisensory activities suggestions, remediation tips, additional strategies for English Language Learners and Children with Special Needs, handwriting standards, references and index. Inside the back cover is a letter formation template for that grade level.

Please note, many of the online interactive resources require an additional purchase and appear to be limited to schools. There is a 30-day trial of the publishers HITT (Handwriting Interactive Teaching Tools) with purchase of the Teacher Guide. While this online support may be helpful, it is certainly not necessary to use this excellent program effectively. Suggested manipulatives are listed with the recommended grade level and the grade level Teacher Guide effectively explains the manipulatives. sc. ~ Deanne

We've enjoyed all the other books from K-2nd grade. Easy enough to not be burdensome, but just enough work to make it stick!

Easy for our learner to use daily. Great for our 3rd grader learning to write cursive.
Kristy R on Aug 8, 2019
We started HWOT with pre-K, now my oldest is in 3rd grade, time to learn cursive! He is not big on neat handwriting, so I'm hoping cursive encourages him to slow down!

2nd Graders that struggles with dyslexia so it was suggested we just skip to cursive to avoid all the trouble he's having with letter reversals

For my homeschooled 1st grader who is about to complete the grade two Handwriting Without Tears book.
Armida P on Mar 7, 2019
My daughter enjoyed this cursive curriculum. I thought she would struggle with cursive but she actually writes better in cursive than in print. Now it's my next student's turn.
Jamie K on Mar 6, 2019
My 4th grader is excited to finally learn cursive. He excelled with HWOT in Kindergarten, so we will revisit the curriculum again to learn cursive!

Love HWT....moving from printing to cursive....easy for my student with dysgraphia
Brenda M on Feb 18, 2019
Schools don't offer this to kids anymore and i feel they should know how to write in cursive. If nothing else they with have a signature from it.
Danae K on Jan 20, 2019
We have loved all of the HWT books and wanted to continue with this teaching approach
Lucas M on Dec 20, 2018
schools have stopped teaching cursive writing and we'll use this for fun in the car
Shopping Mom on Nov 30, 2018
My son is just finishing up Printing Power, and I would like to introduce him to cursive. From reviews and advice of other homeschool parents, this seems like the simplest and most straighforward option, especially for a boy who still struggles to write.
Emily M on Oct 16, 2018
love this cursive book

I really like the format. My kids are ready to move from letters to words.

Trying it out.
Donna T on Sep 30, 2018
This program looks like one my daughter will enjoy, she's begging to learn more cursive (age 7). The current handwriting books we are using are introducing cursive, but at a much slower pace than what she'd like to learn.
Hannah H on Sep 10, 2018
My daughter picked it out from several different ones

This is a very easy to implement and effective basic handwriting program.
Wayne M on Jun 12, 2018
My oldest has been through all of these, and my next one is on course to do them also. It's been enjoyable for all 3 of my children and we are thankful for it. Price doesn't hurt and I don't even use the whole program. Simple and sufficient!

Do you need the teacher's guide?
User on May 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I didn’t use it with my third grader. We had been using HWOT the whole way and didn’t need it for this, she just followed the example strokes.
What's the difference between Cursive Handwriting and Cursive Success?

Cursive Success Student Workbook
Cursive Success Student Workbook
BEST ANSWER: The cursive handwriting book is considered 3rd grade or the first book of cursive. It introduces cursive slowly. Where the cursive success book is considered 4th grade or the second book of cursive. It re-introduces cursive letters and moves a little more quickly through the letters and has more words and sentences than the cursive handwriting book.

Good solid handwriting book.
I've been very impressed with this handwriting book. I was looking for something for my dyslexic 12 yr. old. I feel like this one isn't too babyish. He knew the letters but needed help practicing how to connect them to form words. This fit the bill.

Great for emotionally charged perfectionists!
I’d recommend it! My daughter cries easily when frustrated. This book has been smooth sailing. She can do it in her own, and is so proud of her lovely handwriting! The only downside is the unexciting cover, but the lessons are great.

Handwriting Without Tears
We have always used the Handwriting Without Tears (12 years of homeschooling!). It's easy and to the point. Even my son who has some fine motor skills problems likes it. We did delay his learning cursive a couple years, but now he is whizzing through the book!

We love HWT!
My oldest has done every level of HWT, and it's the one book I know I will buy every year when I get curriculum. The teaching method is solid, and there's plenty of practice in the workbook alone. The copywork passages are typically rules of grammar, so this can also double as a Language Arts suppliment in that regard. It's B&W, so if your student likes to color, there's plenty to add color to in these books.

The cursive style is simplified, so it's not as fancy as other programs, but it's still a nice, basic cursive style for kids to learn.

My son has been very reluctant with handwriting in general, but he loves this book! He actually thinks it is fun! Very clear and easy to understand how to start forming cursive letters. I'll definitely buy this for my future students!

This is a decent handwriting book but not traditional cursive Words are not written with a slant and letters like "r" are written with a flat straight top Also individual letters are not taught with a leading curve Easy to use no prep time needed
