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 son tends to write several letters backwards. I'll be putting these above his desk so he can look at them for reference.

Using ARFH but kids always want to flip to the alphabet page when they forget cursive letters.

For my early writer to use as a reference as she often mentions she had to cross something out because she initially couldn't remember what the letter looked like.
Leonardo P on Feb 20, 2020
Because I thought it would come in handy for my son at home and school

I affix these to my children's desks for a quick reference tool for early writers.

We use this curriculum and also do dictation... this card will be helpful in reminding students how letters are supposed to look.

Easy quick reference for at desks.
Jolene M on Feb 1, 2019
This is a new cursive for my children (Abeka and BJU) and I wanted the cards for their desks at home.

A handy reference for children learning their letters.

This card was for my home-schooled Kindergartner because we don't have a lot of wall space to hang posters.
Jessica S on Dec 10, 2017
I used it to teach my children, want it for my grandchild.

I want to teach my daughter correct cursive, and I'm thrilled with Reason for Handwriting, and wanted a desk card to assist with learning the capital letters.
Sarah H on Sep 18, 2017
My son needed help with his cursive
Jaime J on Sep 9, 2017
I wanted something for my kids to reference if they forget letters and this will go well with the curriculum I ordered. I will probably either tape to their desks or binders.
Joshua J on Aug 20, 2017
We love using reason for handwriting and thought this might a good reference resource.
Jon and Melanie M on Aug 18, 2017
We already have one, but with the manuscript on one side and the cursive on the other, this is a helpful reference card (and at a VERY reasonable price!) that both of my youngest kids use.
Julie S on Aug 15, 2017
I teach 2nd grade, and the school uses A Reason for Handwriting. I plan to put these on student desks for reference.

To supplement our A Reason For Handwriting K curriculum for homeschool.

This is just a basic little card with cursive letters on one side and print on the other, but I have found that it is an awesome resource for my kids to keep at their desks. I am buying a second so they do not have to share.
Rebecca E on Apr 25, 2017
For a visual while my kindergartener is journaling.
Ashley M on Jan 7, 2017
This seems like a helpful tool to bring around the house while writing.
Christine J on Aug 21, 2016
My sons need it for reference as they practice their letters. I bought two so that I would have one for manuscript and one for cursive
Jennifer D on Aug 15, 2016
We used his last year and loved it.

Using this for our handwriting curriculum
Amanda R on Jul 7, 2016
So my kids have a visual to go with their handwriting.
Jaime D on Jul 2, 2016
Looks like a good way to get a little extra practice.
Regie S on Apr 15, 2016
My son is a visual learner. I love to have things at his fingertips to assist him in his learning!
Mali R on Feb 23, 2016
It looked to be very helpful
Tonya S on Feb 12, 2016
I like to have a reference guide the children can use whenever they need
Jennie M on Jan 26, 2016
Just for reference.
Nedda A on Nov 16, 2015
This card has become the bookmark for my daughter's writing book. It is a wonderful reference, and when it turned up missing, we were happy we could replace it for just 50 cents. :)
Karla S on Oct 15, 2015
When my oldest was learning to write, she frequently needed visual reminders of how to form the letters. We are starting to teach our second child to write, and so I wanted to have one of these on hand just in case he needs the visual cues as well.

Is this laminated?

BEST ANSWER: No, but it is a heavy-duty card-stock with a glossy finish.

My son really likes and appreciates having the cursive letters on this card. He is using a Reason for Handwriting book for learning cursive right now, and really finds it helpful to have this useful little card in front of him when he's doing his dictation and writing other things in cursive, which he's still getting used to. This facilitates him in remembering what the letters look like as he's learning without always having to open his book. Just deducted one star because the card was bent a bit upon arrival, and though the package said to be careful and not to bend (or something to that effect), it may have been more helpful to have it surrounded by cardboard to keep it in tact. He can still read all the letters though.

The desk cards are very helpful to have Just be aware that they are very small and that they each have a sticker on a corner (product number and barcode) which can not be removed

We used this program for the first time last yearmy daughter's 1st grade year I LOVED that God and His Word were integrated into a handwriting assignment What made it even better is that there was virtually no prep necessary My daughter even looked forward to doing her handwriting I prefer the style of writing (compared to italic) taught in this curriculum and appreciate the small steps it takes to make the transition to cursive easier (writing a lowercase a b d etc in one step) We also purchased the A Reason For Handwriting Manu/Cursive Wall Sheets and put them in plastic sheet protectors in a "handwriting binder" so my daughter could flip through and remember what to do when she got stuck on a letter We purchased the Student Desk Card to have something similar to the wall sheets in a portable/travel size Every week my daughter would look forward to finishing her week by picking out a "special page" out of the Reason for Handwriting Border Book and doing her very best printing and then coloring the border picture We saved all her special pages in a report cover and it was fun to look back over the year and see her progress We will be doing A Reason For Handwriting again this year for second grade and I know we'll both be looking forward to it!
