Category Description for New American Cursive:

Handwriting with a bit of a different approach will teach your child cursive skills beginning in first grade. There are fewer strokes, a natural right slant, and the strokes are simplified. The philosophy is that students have the motor skills to write cursive at the first grade level, and when we wait to teach them at about third grade, they literally go back to the speed of first grade writing as they transition from print to cursive.

Each book includes a 7-page teaching guide, followed by instruction and exercises, illustrations and practice sheets with quotes and Bible verses (a secular version of Book II uses quotes from famous Americans in lieu of Bible verses). Book II and III also include handwriting evaluations, review of paper placement and pencil position, review of letter and number formations, and progress reports and test pages. The books have an uncluttered, visual appeal with uncramped space to practice. Since the books are intended for elementary grades, the spacing is very important.

'Mr. Meerkat' guides your child through each book as he shows the way to draw each letter and encourages creativity. Before the 1940s, children were taught cursive in the first grade. This course provides the opportunity to use this simple technique to bring back the art of handwriting. - Donna

These materials span grades and include both instruction and practice.

Used book 1 for first year cursive and it was a perfect fit - moving on to this book next.

They completed The Rhythm of Handwriting cursive instructional book last year, so I was looking for practice. We are studying American history this year, so it seemed perfect.

good for learning cursive and history

My son needs to start working on his cursive writing. He practices the letter but I think the quotations would be a lot more fun. And it could increase his knowledge of what famous people have said over time.

We completed the first book last year, and I am excited for this book, with the quotes from famous Americans! I love that they will be learning bits from history as well as cursive at the same time!

My son is a young 6th grader who has never learned to write cursive. Which New American Cursive book is right to start him on?
Heidi on Aug 14, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I am in a similar situation with my daughter. Because she is older, the book Teach Yourself Cursive. It covers the fundamentals and is suited for older children who don't want or need cartoon characters in their workbooks. After teaching the basics, it then goes into how you can personalize your style. It also has interesting and motivating information about why one should learn cursive, personal styles of famous people, and includes samples from said famous people.
