Powerful Printing Left-Hand Workbook
These handwriting books provide printing and cursive instruction in one convenient location, covering individual letters to complete sentences. Each book begins with a couple of activities to get students comfortable with the instructional style of the book. Students are first asked to identify the different types of lines in ruled paper (top, mid, and writing) and then to "learn the language" of the books. These two exercises seek to help students better understand the written instructions of the book. For example, to form the lowercase print letter "o," students are instructed to "Start at the mid line. Curve left, down to the writing line. Continue to curve around up to the mid line." No additional handwriting instruction is included. Letter formation instruction is the same in the left and right hand books, although there is a format difference. Right-hand books present the letters and words on the left hand side of the page; left-hand books present the letters and words on the right hand side of the page. Each book covers both lowercase and capital letters, and letters are grouped together by letter "families" such as curve letters or slant letters. One full page is devoted to each letter of the alphabet, and plenty of review activities are provided for additional writing practice. Books measure 8 ½" x 11" (portrait orientation) and are 100+ pages in length. Ruling is 1/2" for the print workbooks and 7/8" for the cursive books. Top spiral bound. Not reproducible. - Enh/Deanne
