Category Description for Pentime Handwriting Series:

This program is designed to teach children handwriting with a minimum of assistance. Eight black and white workbooks help students master the skill of manuscript writing, transition into cursive, and continue to build cursive skills using smaller and smaller lines. In the first workbook, students focus on writing the individual letters on wide lines with a dotted midline. The correct strokes are shown (and numbered) for each letter along with plenty of space for children to practice. The second book continues practice of upper and lowercase letters but adds words and sentences as well. In place of stroke guides, a dot on each letter shows children where to start forming the letter. The third book (Transition) reviews manuscript for 35 pages and then jumps into cursive handwriting for the remaining 60 pages of the book, where students learn the strokes for individual cursive letters and practice connecting them. The rest of the series allows children to fully master cursive writing as they continually practice by writing the letters and copying longer and longer paragraphs on increasingly smaller lines (rulings gradually decrease from 1/2" in Grade 3 to 5/16" in Grade 8). Paragraphs range from fun sentences to Bible verses (close to the ASV version) to excerpts from essays on nature. Captions in the older grades provide interesting facts, and pretty border sheets to color are scattered throughout. - Steph

My middle school-aged daughter needs more cursive practice. Pentime's levelss 6 & 7 had meaningful and interesting words/segments for her to practice, so I am expecting the same from Pentime 8.

Love Pentime. Inexpensive and effective.

With this order, we're closing in on having used all eight books of this resource for all six kids. We're very grateful for and have been very happy with this series and publication. Thanks to Rainbow Resource for carrying it!

I already had one from a previous year. That student didn't complete it, so I am using it for my next child. We are doing school with a friend this year, so I am ordering it for her. Cursive is so important and these excerpts of copywork are about birds, animals and plants, which my nature-loving students look forward to completing!
Linette S on Sep 18, 2019

We have been using Pentime for several years now, and we absolutely LOVE these books! They contain beautiful poetry as well as neat information about nature and our country. My children's handwriting has greatly improved with these books, and they enjoy using them. I honestly couldn't recommend them more.
Stephanie S on Sep 18, 2018
My oldest daughter needed a handwriting review that wasn't "little kid-ish"

I thought that my oldest son could use a refresher for having a beautiful hand, and this cursive program is in a traditional style that I love.
Brenda B on Nov 25, 2017

Heather L on Nov 2, 2017
It had some great reviews and wanted to try it out to work on penmanship with my 8th grader.
Jennifer G on Aug 9, 2017
As there are no cursive practice books available above 3rd grade in bookstores, this seems to be the solution for simple straight forward cursive.
Kelly D on May 14, 2017
I wanted a Christian based handwriting program and know that my daughter will enjoy the added calligraphy feature.
Marcie C on Apr 6, 2017
We have used Grade 7. It has helped my students become good cursive writers.
Alison C on Nov 8, 2016
we have worked through this series and my children love it! I'm sad this is the final book in the series. It's always the one they finish first because they enjoy it so much. The sayings and drawings are inspirational and I enjoy the simplicity of this series.
Jennifer D on Aug 22, 2016
Great program with a low cost.
