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.

My son's handwritng improves greatly with this series.

I used this curriculum growing up. It was simple and fun. The transition from print to cursive was logical and flowed well. There are no extraneous loops or swirls. I have had many compliments over the years on the legibility of my writing, even when I am writing fast and sloppily (for me).

Looked at reviews for handwriting to help my 6th grader who has struggled with other programs. This programs appears to use a different style which I hope will help her.

Going to try this handwriting curriculum for some remedial handwriting work for my middle and highschool age boys--cursive really never stuck with them but I want them to have nice legible handwriting that also flows fairly quickly for the purposes of essay writing in highschool, SAT's, etc.

I have 4 children working in Getty Dubay Italic workbooks at different levels right now. They like the format, and I like the independence it gives them! My oldest, who also learned Italic and is out of highschool, receives compliments on her handwriting.

I have 2 older middle students who are sloppy with their handwriting. I am hoping a new technique will improve speed and legibility.

We have used the Italic Handwriting Series from book A-G! Each day they write and copy the letters exactly the way it is in bold I never had either of my girls crying over handwriting with this series They both have beautiful handwriting today!

My 13 year old son's handwriting left a lot to be desired after a few years of not using the Italics books I picked up book G from a friend & assigned it to him and what a HUGE difference it has made in his penmanship! It's been painless and we are both extremely pleased with the improvement Definitely a recommended resource!

I love this!!! I didn't start it until my oldest was in 5th grade Her handwriting was horrible She is dyslexic and just had a really hard time writing anything because it took her so long and then after all that work you could barely read it She was embarrassed to write anything that her friends might see This series made a huge difference We did short lessons each day & then practiced the lesson doing copywork By the end of the first book (I think Book C) you could see a huge difference It was a huge confidence boost The rest of my kids have all done very well with it also It has short lessons it is cheap to buy and very painless to use EXCELLENT!!!
