Product Description:

This handwriting workbook is good for younger students just learning cursive, or for an older child who has never learned. Learn grip and paper placement, then get busy training your hand to make the swooping and looping shapes. Author Diana Hanbury King goes about this very simply at first, then groups lower case letters by commonalities. There is plenty of practice space, but no dotted-half-line like other handwriting courses. There is a slight slant to the right for right handed students. The letters are traditional and not overly fussy. The capital Q looks like a 2. There is tracing and copying, and even writing with your eyes closed! Numbers are included. First you'll write words, then 3 words, then capital letters, capitalized words and eventually, short sentences. In the back, practice writing names, days of the week, months, dates, abbreviations, greetings and closings for friendly and business letters, holidays, book titles, and finally, some vocabulary words related to the 4 core subject areas. A page or 2 a day for practice will help develop your child's cursive. The book has a stapled binding and lies nice and flat. 89 pgs, pb, non-reproducible. ~ Sara

These handwriting workbooks are good for younger students just learning cursive, or for an older child who has never learned. Both versions follow the same format: learn grip and paper placement, then get busy training your hand to make the swooping and looping shapes. Author Diana Hanbury King goes about this very simply at first, then groups lower case letters by commonalities. There is plenty of practice space, but no dotted-half-line like other handwriting courses. Each version has a slight slant - right handed to the right and left handed to the left. The letters are traditional and not overly fussy. The capital Q looks like a 2. There is tracing and copying, and even writing with your eyes closed! Numbers are included. First you'll write words, then 3 words, then capital letters, capitalized words and eventually, short sentences. In the back, practice writing names, days of the week, months, dates, abbreviations, greetings and closings for friendly and business letters, holidays, book

I chose this because I'm familiar with Diana Hansbury Kings outstanding reputation and innovation. The processes in this book are multisensory and a good companion to the Orton- Gillingham approach to reading and spelling.

I ordered the left handed for one son and like it. So I ordered the right handed one for my younger son.
