Cursive Writing Practice: Wacky Facts Grades 2-5
Meeting resistance when it comes time for handwriting practice? These themed practice books can save the day. Each workbook has 40 reproducible practice pages with built-in motivation. There is a short review at the beginning on how to form the letters, but this is more for practice than initial instruction. The pages start with 3 target words from the quote/joke/fact for the student practices writing a few times. They then carefully copy the entire selection. At the end of the workbook, they can cut off the bottom of the pages to make into a stapled book of their handwriting practice and end up with a fun book of quotes/jokes/facts.
Wacky Facts: includes things like world records, interesting trivia, cool animal facts and more. Available in print or cursive, depending on grade level. It can take only 5-10 minutes per day to get in some handwriting practice that your child won't dread. They may even ask to do more than a page a day! 48 pb; reproducible for home/classroom use. Modern style ~ Lisa/Sara
Put a little humor with your schoolwork. Wacky Facts are silly trivia make handwriting a little more fun especially for reluctant writers. Get ready to hear, "Mom, did you know...?" which is way better than, "Awww do I have to?" Both books are more for practice than actual instruction. Kids copy single words, and then full sentences like: The world record for hiccupping belongs to Charles Osborne. The poor man had hiccups for 68 years. Tips in the margin remind you to check your spacing and take your time. Following dotted lines, can cut half the page away and make your own little book of wacky facts (another motivator to practice their handwriting and finish the book!) It's all very cleverly done. Each book has 40-48pp ~ Sara
These materials are mostly practice; any instruction is limited.
