Category Description for Classically Cursive:

This Veritas Press modern cursive program focuses students on God as they cultivate good handwriting skills. The first book in this series quickly reviews modern manuscript before introducing the lowercase modern cursive letters one at a time. Numbers and arrows indicate the correct strokes for forming each letter, and children practice tracing over gray letters before writing letters on their own. The rest of each page encourages students to form a series of that letter connected together and practice small given words. The cursive capital alphabet is then introduced and practiced before students end by neatly copying the books of the Bible and several verses on the lined pages which follow. The second book provides a complete review of the skills learned in the first, with pages again devoted to each uppercase and lowercase letter and more practice with small words and connecting a series of the same letter. At the end of this book, students carefully copy the Ten Commandments. The last two books in the series offer continued reinforcement through copying a series of passages on smaller ruled lines in the third and lines with no rule in the fourth. The passages in the third book are from the Westminster Shorter Catechism, and those in the fourth concentrate on the attributes of God. - Steph

Looking for detailed cursive instruction that is coherent and not random as so many other workbooks.

I wanted a cursive handwriting program for my daughter, and I find the classic or even antique look more appealing than some of the newer cartoon-type programs.

I chose this handwriting because it gives multiple letters for the child to trace before they write their own.

It was recommended by friends and I think it is important for kids to know how to read and write cursive in this digital age!

I like the Bible Emphasis in the Handwriting for little ones and a review on manuscript before jumping into cursive.

A few of our friends like it and highly recommend it!

I have used this book to teach 4 other children how to write cursive. It is beautiful when children write beautifully and they write God's Word!

I have used the first three books in this series with children who were all taught with ball-and-stick manuscript None of my three very different children found any problems switching to modern cursive from traditional manuscript We skipped the review of modern manuscript and went right on to the modern cursive practice This speaks well for the ease of the program! The children never needed my help to understand how to make the letters properly I had one wiggley-handed boy one reluctant-to-try-anything girl and one neat boy who simply hated to work They all enjoyed this program I believe that what spurred them on was the biblical content I used the catechism book for my 5th grade son and he was quite challenged by the language He did call me in to his room occassionally to discuss a biblical truth that Classically Cursive addressed We had some wonderful talks He might never have simply picked up and read the Lutheran Catechism we have on our book shelf but he copied similar questions from his cursive workbook and thought deeply about what he was writing I am going to let my 14 yo dyslexic son use the Catechism book this year The suggested ages seem high to me Catechism is often taught in junior high My 7th grade son will use book 4 next year and I know it will not be demeaning for him Even though his handwriting is nice now I want him to enjoy the biblical content and feel free to ask me more questions about God I am very thankful for this program The price was higher than we liked but we found that the kids could copy their practice work into spiral notebooks and pass the workbooks down to other siblings So for a program that we made reusable not only did our children develop lovely handwriting but their faith was challenged and their understanding of Scripture was broadened along the way I liked making my dollar stretch even though this program would be worth the purchase of a new workbook for every child each year Is it terrible in this case to use the old adage "We killed two birds with one stone"?
