Practice handwriting at home with Manuscript Handwriting and Cursive Handwriting from Spectrum(R). These essential workbooks provide students in kindergarten to grade 5 with the handwriting practice that may be missing from today's busy classroom. Students learn correct letter formation while gaining exposure to academic vocabulary. Colorful illustrations and silly sentences keep students engaged as they develop the handwriting skills that are crucial for school success.
Spectrum workbooks are good supplements in a lot of areas. Handwriting is now added to the list. The manuscript book is for grades K-2, and the cursive is for grades 3-5. Since there is only one book for each type, I think these would be a good remedial option. They use a traditional style, practice lower and upper cases, and have students writing out some pretty big vocabulary words. In the manuscript book, students practice the letters individually and then write words such as alphabet, Delaware, grammar, question, California, octopus, kilometer, etc. The cursive book practices individual letters then connects a few at a time before the student writes words (mm, um, ma, ms, mo, om, sm, for example). The cursive words include centimeter, algebra, quadrilateral, antonym, biodiversity, volcanic, etc. Consumable, 96pp, sc. ~ Sara
