Publisher Description:

A Reason for Handwriting Level E Student Worktext includes 32 weekly lessons, which each provide 10-15 minutes of daily practice. On days 1 - 3, students write letters and words from the week's Scripture verse. On day 4, students transcribe the entire verse on a sheet of practice paper. On the final day, students select a Border Sheet from the back of the book, and write the week's Scripture verse in their best cursive handwriting, then use their creativity to color the design on their Border Sheet.

Note: The weekly verse in A Reason For Handwriting Level E corresponds with the same week's theme verse in A Reason For Spelling Level E, thus reinforcing the Scripture content of each lesson.

Category Description for A Reason for Handwriting:

An appealing, full-color Christian handwriting program that provides instruction and practice in handwriting (traditional style) with about 30 lessons per level (except for K which has 49). Each level has a letter designation, with a whole book for transition from manuscript to cursive in between B and C. The Transition book contains content from both Book B (print) and Book C (cursive) and you can use in place of either Book B or Book C, depending on your student's needs (see PDF sample for more information on using the Transition Book). Starting in Book C, all handwriting is cursive. In the more advanced levels, discussion questions accompany the weekly Bible verse. One more change to note is the height of the lines; they are smaller in the cursive section of the Transition Book or Book C (3/8") than in the previous books (manuscript books have 5/8" lines). The manuscript and cursive border sheets are also revised, and are now included with the workbooks. These nicely bordered lined papers challenge students to write their scripture verses on them "in their best handwriting." (Scripture verses are taken from the Living Bible.) The student desk card shows manuscript and cursive letters on a personal-sized card, or you can put the big letters up on the wall using the alphabet wall sheets. One comprehensive teacher's guide covers the whole series. Please note that sets are also available, which include the student book and teacher guide at a discount. ~ Melissa

My kids have all enjoyed this program. Each day is clearly marked out of what to practice, the lesson is short, and my kids have enjoyed choosing what decorative blank writing page to choose at the end. Scripture verses chosen are very applicable for the kids as well.

My boys have used this handwriting program since K. The books are simple and demand very little time, but the practice is enough to give my boys very neat cursive. I also love the verses the publisher chose to include. I'm ordering the next book for our new year to continue my younger son's course.

Pam B on Sep 7, 2022
What size are the lines? We have Horizons Penmanship 4 and the lines are very small, about 1/4 inch tall, and it was very difficult for my daughter to write neatly in such a small space. Thanks!
Julie on Feb 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The lines in A Reason for Handwriting Book E are about 1 cm or 3/8 inch tall which is a little larger than 1/4 inch. My 5th grade students do fine with that size.

Scripture & Cursive! Amazing!
I’m so glad I found this. My older kids enjoy practicing cursive through writing out scripture verses. Day 5 of every week is especially enjoyable as kids get to write out their scripture verse on a ruled, illustrated page at the back of the book!

all 3 of my kids have done well with this. Their cursive is neater than mine, and a daily assignment is a manageable amount

I love this program! As well as teaching scripture to your child it has colorful pages and engages your child into handwritingIt was extremely easy for our daughter to use No prep for the teacher was necessary We used grade 5 so perhaps there is some prep for the younger grades
