Category Description for Cursive Success - Grade 4:

Builds confidence and mastery of cursive handwriting. Reviews letter formation before expanding on writing activities that include paragraphs, compositions, and poems.

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

Cursive Success really refines my children's cursive handwriting that they have learned in the other HWT books.
Taneil L on Sep 1, 2020
Handwriting Without Tears is written by an occupational therapist who educates teachers on how handwriting is made more difficult than it has to be and how to get students "going in the right direction."

HWOT worked well for my son last year. He needs my cursive practice so I chose the next book in the series.
User on Jul 23, 2020
We've used HWOT since Kindergarten and really like it.
Heidi W on Jul 2, 2020
Being born in France, cursive is a daily occurrence for me. I do find it important for the children to keep the art going. We love the series as it had already successfully taught them how to print their letters clearly and neatly "without tears" involved. I highly recommend this series.
Emmanuelle H on Jun 25, 2020
HWT is very easy for my children to follow.

An enjoyable way to learn cursive.

I think that it's important that we continue teaching our children how to read and write cursive. Handwriting Without Tears is a great Curriculum that teaches kids how to form their letters properly.

Has anyone used the Can-Do Cursive book? My son did the 3rd grade cursive book last year and I was looking to do the orange book as a follow-up versus Cursive Success (the 4th grade book).

BEST ANSWER: My son is currently working in the Can-Do Cursive book. He likes it a lot. Does about 2 pages a week so we can space it out for the entire school year. He is able to work through the pages himself, and let me know when he gets them done. He asks when he has questions, but usually it isn't about the cursive itself, but about the content. Hope this helps!
What's the difference between Cursive Handwriting and Cursive Success?

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.
Is it necessary to purchase the teacher's guide?
A shopper on Feb 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No... I don't think so. There are a couple of pages that don't make sense without it but I would just make something up for the kids to write or make them copy their spelling words in the blanks.

One page per school day
I love everything HWOT! Use their YouTube videos for guidance. So good! Resist the urge to let kids do more than one page a day.

Wonderful curriculum
We love all the Handwriting Without Tears workbooks. While I worked extensively with handwriting in the early years, they have been able to work independently on learning cursive themselves.

Great cursive reinforcement!
My daughter was driven and determined to learn to write in cursive. After finishing the HWT Cursive Handwriting book within the first few months of our academic year, I bought this for reinforcement of what she has learned. She feels very comfortable writing in cursive now.

Great resource
I like the cursive style and the book is easy to follow with good visuals to help remember the lessons.1-2 pages a day is enough to practice without feeling overwhelmed (especially for my reluctant writer).
