Product Description:

This is a set of the five copy books only, for those who have additional students or just need a refill on the copy books. No instructional book is included.

Publisher Description:

The five copybooks listed below make a complete course in elementary school handwriting. They can be used in any of the grades.

  • Book 1 Introduces all the short letters. Only four strokes, or principles, as Spencer called them, are needed to produce these letters.
  • Book 2: Adds some of the tall letters - t and d - and the numerals 1-9.
  • Book 3: Completes the lower case alphabet and introduces most of the capitals.
  • Book 4: Completes the capital alphabet and provides practice on all the letters as they appear in words.
  • Book 5: Presents sentences and sayings for writing practice. Examples: Kind words can never die. Promise little and do much.
Category Description for Spencerian Penmanship:

If your goal is to have your student produce graceful, flowing script, then you may want to take a look at this series originally published in the 1800s. The copy books provide space for the practice needed to develop and perfect this near-calligraphy style.




These materials span grades and include both instruction and practice.

Excellent resource
This book breaks cursive down into small, manageable pieces. It actually feels almost therapeutic to do the strokes. My daughter, who has always had subpar handwriting and cursive penmanship, within one week was suddenly motivated to have beautiful cursive penmanship. She had already learned to both read and write cursive using other resources, but something about this one simply made her want to do it beautifully.

Nice books. Where’s the first one?
These are nice copy books. However the first book with all the theory and 9 lessons is not part of this. I just got a pdf online and printed it out. Still a little disappointed.

Great and beautiful pennmanship
I love this and used these over 20 years ago while in school. Enough repetition for dyslexia, and a great form for holding your writing utensil to keep from getting tired.

As a teacher at a Charlotte Mason school we used this program and I'm happy to report my fourth graders had lovely handwriting I'm now purchasing this program to use with my own daughter starting in first grade Learning this as a new teacher vastly improved my own handwriting I've always had a neat hand but this made it lovely as well as legible

My son in Grade 7 really enjoyed this program We have used it as a transition between his previous cursive program and a study of calligraphy He used a fountain pen to complete all of the lessons and has come away with the ability to write beautifully I will use it again with my other children
