Product Description:

The key to uniform and legible handwriting is regular practice. A summer’s worth of practice (three days a week) for the beginning student who has just finished New American Cursive Workbook 1, this “sunny” workbook provides a review of lowercase and uppercase letter formation. Additional practice includes grammar sentences, lines from poems, maxims, scripture, days of the week, and months of the year. Practice lines are 7/16” with dotted middle. Horizontal orientation, 45 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

Publisher Description:

The goal of this workbook is to solidify what the cursive students learned in New American Cursive 1 so that they smoothly transition to New American Cursive 2 in the fall. Summer Cursive is arranged in lessons to be completed three times a week during the summer. Each 2-page spread has letter review and sentences for students to copy that are taken from Scripture, science, famous quotations, English grammar rules, etc., so students review basic facts and Scripture while practicing their cursive penmanship.

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

Wanted something to keep up her handwriting during her summer break.

My 6 year old really enjoyed working through the first book in this new American cursive series and is eager to continue practicing her skills. I hope she enjoys this one as much.

My youngest son was doing poorly with print handwriting, so we tried New American Cursive a few months ago. He loves it and his handwriting has improved dramatically. I wanted this book to serve as an in-between practice before he starts level 2.
