Product Description:

Publisher Description:

Practice makes perfect when it comes to cursive writing. Designed for fifth grade students and above, Can-Do Cursive gives your students opportunities to review their handwriting abilities and reinforce other language skills such as grammar, writing paragraphs, and recognizing key word roots.

  • Students receive a quick, thorough review of cursive with emphasis on difficult connections
  • Practice pages reinforce other language arts lessons, such as grammar and Greek/Latin word roots
  • Cursive skills are used to write paragraphs, poetry, and thank you notes

Category Description for Can-Do Print / Cursive - Grades 5-8:

Available for additional practice for mastery. Begins with review of letter formation, then handwriting practice is put to use in lessons targeting grammar, Latin and Greek roots, and writing exercises. Content is the same in both books, but focus is on print and cursive respectively. 2018 edition.

Category Description for Handwriting Without Tears:

Providing a tactile, hands-on approach to handwriting, this approach works well for many types of students.

It is particularly helpful for children who are left-handed children or those who need a more interactive approach to learning. Children who struggle with motor skills or experience cognitive difficulties will also reap great benefits from this program. Unique to this program, practice pages use a two-horizontal-line format rather than the three-horizontal-line format typically found in writing programs, cursive has no slant and letters are formed using a very simple single-stroke, and it uses a multisensory approach to teach. Teaching and practice sessions are short (10-15 minutes), without a lot of meaningless busy work.

Each level of Handwriting without Tears consists of a workbook and teacher guide.

Consumable Student workbooks have horizontal pages in Kindergarten through Grade 2. Grade 3 and up offers vertical pages. Workbooks may be used separately, although at the early levels parents of struggling writers may find the Teacher Guides extremely valuable.

Newly revised in 2018, the Teacher Guides provide additional teaching instruction and support, while the Student Books provide more writing practice for each lesson. While some of the content is the same from the 2013 version, the expanded content means the two editions are not compatible without considerable parental/teacher modification (depending on lesson and level). Please note, the Spanish Student Books are also now updated to 2018 editions. There are currently no Spanish Teacher Guides available. English Teacher Guides provide the overall teaching philosophy, techniques and applicable multi-sensory activities, but do not provide the daily lesson plans.

Teacher Guides include:

  • an overview of the program
  • handwriting instruction
  • the stages of learning and scope and sequence
  • teaching guidelines
  • weekly and daily schedules for each unit
  • instructions on proper posture
  • paper and pencil skills

Following these helpful "how to" sections are lessons corresponding to each page in the student book. Each lesson includes a reduced student page, lesson objective and introduction, lesson plans and enrichment, ELL (English Language Learner) support and Cross Curricular suggestions. The back of each teacher guide includes multisensory activities suggestions, remediation tips, additional strategies for English Language Learners and Children with Special Needs, handwriting standards, references and index. Inside the back cover is a letter formation template for that grade level.

Please note, many of the online interactive resources require an additional purchase and appear to be limited to schools. There is a 30-day trial of the publishers HITT (Handwriting Interactive Teaching Tools) with purchase of the Teacher Guide. While this online support may be helpful, it is certainly not necessary to use this excellent program effectively. Suggested manipulatives are listed with the recommended grade level and the grade level Teacher Guide effectively explains the manipulatives. sc. ~ Deanne

These materials are graded specifically and include both instruction and practice.

HWOT has been helpful in instructing my children on how to do cursive. My ADD kids have found that their writing, while legible in print, appears much better in cursive. This is an easy program that all my kids have done well with.

HWoT has been great for my kids-- it's gentle but consistent, and it doesn't overwhelm them with too much practice-- just the right amount.

Cursive has helped my dyslexic kids so much in their school work!
Alicia S on Jul 29, 2019
I have been using handwriting without tears with my children since Kindergarten, and we all love it! It is very self explanatory, and my children enjoy starting their handwriting every morning as morning work. Both of them have beautiful print and cursive, not because of my teaching, but because of how Handwriting Without Tears taught him.
Natalie K on Jul 27, 2019
It has worked for us thus far...
Courtney B on Jul 23, 2019
love the greek/latin lessons included!
Lindsey D on Jul 8, 2019
I chose this book to help my son get over “not liking” to use cursive handwriting. I hope this year he’ll finally realize he can write faster in cursive, thus allowing him to take notes in a timely matter. I also like that this workbook can be used in conjunction with our ELA curriculum, thanks to the Grammar, Latin & Greek, and Writer’s Notebook chapters/sections.
Rochelle O on Jun 14, 2019
Cursive taught right! I have 4 dyslexic boys and this material for all grades saved our penmanship struggles! I love to use the "journals" to incorporate the proper sized lines for other materials writing. Great program

We have another Handwriting Without Tears cursive book and my daughter loved it.
Heather A on Jan 25, 2019
Handwriting without Tears is the #1 recommended by pediatric occupational therapists. I have had children with some fine motor issues and this works pretty well with that.
Carla W on Jan 9, 2019
Used this in earlier grades. Son loves it and his handwriting is exceptionally neat. Really like the lines on the paper, unlike the traditional. He seems to get the heights of the letters easier.
julie f on Dec 20, 2018
We had it before and lost it. Easy to learn cursive.
Noelle L on Nov 19, 2018
I have enjoyed using this program with my children and I believe they're ready for the next level. Handwriting Without Tears really did help my daughter especially, who is a perfectionist and really struggled at first to grasp the cursive concept. This series greatly simplified the process for her and now she's doing better than her older brother :)
Thomas G on Sep 3, 2018
My son has forgotten his cursive, so we are doing this book again to refresh. I wish they had support materials for kids older than grade 5, but I like this curriculum.
Tammy M on Aug 23, 2018
We love Handwriting without Tears and this is the next book in the series. My kids love these books!
Joy S on Jun 4, 2018
This looks amazing - my daughter enjoys interesting ways to practice her cursive and this looks perfect!

The graphics seemed to be something my son would enjoy while learning how to improve his fluency in cursive writing.
Julie A on Dec 15, 2017
My children are older and I did not need a cursive book set with huge writing. The smaller writing in this cursive book is perfect for an older child picking up cursive.
Valerie T on Sep 27, 2017
I asked for advice from Rainbow's employees.

Do you need to purchase additional paper or does this come with practice pages?
A shopper on Aug 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There is some practice space in the worktext but you will most likely want additional paper. We see a package that includes the book plus paper - #HWOT5C -
Has anyone used the Can-Do Cursive book? My son did the 3rd grade cursive book last year and I was looking to do the orange book as a follow-up versus Cursive Success (the 4th grade book).

BEST ANSWER: My son is currently working in the Can-Do Cursive book. He likes it a lot. Does about 2 pages a week so we can space it out for the entire school year. He is able to work through the pages himself, and let me know when he gets them done. He asks when he has questions, but usually it isn't about the cursive itself, but about the content. Hope this helps!

Must Have
I've used this for 2 of my children 1 is finished and the other is in 5th. Both my children love this and can write beautifully. They both love cursive and one is very difficult to get to do anything.
I also bought Keyboarding with this and their keyboarding skills have far surpassed mine.
