Product Description:

The third book still incorporates whimsical Mr. Meerkat as your child's guide through the lessons. There are 100 lessons, one lesson per page, which should take only about 10-15 minutes daily. Many of the lessons are intended to increase creative writing skills by asking the student to write about something familiar, and there are still opportunities for artwork. Other lessons are copy work, which incorporate scripture (KJV and NKJV) and lessons on manners. The first section of book 3 is review of letterforms, connections, size, slant, spacing, and proper pencil, paper, and posture review techniques. A slant guide is included along with reproducible practice pages, and evaluation forms.

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

We've used both the NAC 1 and NAC 2. The format is simple, doesn't take any prepwork for either teacher or student, and it's effective. I also like the copy work selections and creative writing prompts.
