Publisher Description:

Writing for Learning: Writing Letters and Words helps kindergarten students learn proper manuscript letter formation.

  • Students trace and write manuscript basic strokes, uppercase and lowercase letters, and numerals.
  • Traceable words on every letter page provide additional practice and reinforce reading skills.

Check-ups encourage students to self-evaluate their work so they can recognize and immediately correct errors.

Formerly the 2nd edition of Universal Publishing Handwriting, this series has been relaunched as "Writing for Learning." These straightforward, no-nonsense handwriting workbooks are 8.5" x 11" with the first seven in landscape format. The series consists of 11 books, designed to help students all the way from learning the basic strokes to mastering cursive. Books feature color covers, but are black-and-white inside.Reading/Writing Readiness gets students ready to write by engaging them in a series of prewriting activities including tracing and drawing lines (up and down, left to right, and slanted), tracing and drawing shapes, matching letters, numbers and shapes, coloring, and completing mazes. In the PK/K level, children are ready to learn how to write their manuscript letters from Aa to Zz. Many pages also offer an activity such as a matching or maze exercise. Thegrades K and 1 levels feature slightly smaller writing lines and review all of the manuscript letters A-Z and guide students toward writing short words and sentences. Students begin the transition to cursive in book M/C (2nd grade). The first part of this book reviews manuscript. Students then learn the additional strokes for cursive and the cursive alphabet, practicing individual letters and short sentences. The third grade book is similar to the cursive part of the transition book, offering review of each cursive letter with individual letters, words, and sentences.

The last four books in the series are portrait format and feature smaller lines. These continue offering cursive practice, with most pages progressing from letter practice to word practice to practice writing a sentence or a paragraph. The sentences and paragraphs to copy are always very educationally-focused, including facts about plants and animals, tidbits on geographical places and famous people, and other interesting pieces of information. Between practice on individual letters, there are occasionally opportunities to practice "real-life" writing, such as writing an address on a postcard or filling out a job application form. Overall, a solid choice for learning traditional style handwriting that offers plenty of cursive enrichment. 80 pages each, pb. - Melissa

This year we've used 3 levels of Universal Publishing's handwriting programsMy 5 year old daughter is using the My Letter Book I have decided that the program works very well together and I like that I do not have to research each year for the right handwriting bookMy daughter already knew the basic formations of her letters and numbers (although that is not necessary foreknowledge for this book) This book does a great job of fine tuning the wobbly preschool letters into proper school-aged penmanshipA review of the basic strokes is taught through a series of tracing and copying shapes and designs before letter formation beginsThis book is very simple and easy to use Like the younger books the 2 open pages are just the right amount of work for a kindergarten studentThe stroke-size required fits well with the typical developmental needs of a child beginning to write wordsNo teacher's manual is necessaryThe cost is very lowMy daughter enjoys her handwriting lessons and is always eager to keep going!
