Product Description:

Right-handed or left-handed, simple shapes, finger tracing, color-coding, catchy repetitive phrases and lots of practice make this single handwriting instruction book quite unique. Use it with big kids to littles. Its not juvenile looking, but also without a complicated design. Using the horizontal format with a top spiral at the top, work through the pages from the front, then flip over and work through the back sides. The four basic shapes are color coded: orange ovals, lime loops, silver swings and mauve mounds. Finger tracing builds muscle memory. Saying the task steps of a task as you perform them helps reinforce new motor skills. And of course, there is pencil work tracing: inside bubble letters; writing letters; connecting letters, followed by sentences. Each lesson reviews the 4 main shapes. Additionally unique, the letters are grouped by the 4 basic shapes, not in alphabetical order: a good option for visual learners. Its just well done. Whether your child would benefit from these methods, has never mastered cursive, or is a more traditional learner, this is as good a fit. Writing lines are .75" with dotted midline. There are 14 weeks of lessons (with 4 days per week of instruction). 11"x 8.5", 111 pgs, pb. ~ Sara

Publisher Description:

The CursiveLogic Student Workbook is a 14-week program designed for easy implementation in the home and classroom.

Using a patent-pending, shape-based approach, CursiveLogic teaches the entire lowercase alphabet in five weeks. Students learn four strings of six to eight connected letters that share a common shape. After learning the four lowercase strings, students spend the next six weeks learning capital letters and reinforcing the skills they learned during the first four weeks. In the last three weeks, students perfect their technique and complete a capstone activity — writing and mailing a thank you note. At the end of 14 weeks, students have excellent penmanship and a firm command of cursive.

CursiveLogic's shape-based approach to teaching cursive engages every learning style by seamlessly combining visual, auditory, verbal, and kinesthetic elements. CursiveLogic makes it possible for every student to succeed and enjoy the process.

Category Description for CursiveLogic:

Whether your child is right-handed or left-handed, the simple shapes, finger tracing, color-coding, catchy phrases and lots of practice make this single handwriting instruction book quite unique. Use it with big kids to littles. It's not juvenile looking, but it is also without a complicated design. The book has a horizontal format with a top spiral, and your student works through the pages from the front, then flips the book over and works through the back sides. The four basic shapes are color coded: orange ovals, lime loops, silver swings and mauve mounds. Finger tracing builds muscle memory. Saying the task steps of a task as you perform them helps reinforce new motor skills. And of course, there is pencil work tracing: inside bubble letters, writing letters, and connecting letters followed by sentences. Each lesson reviews the 4 main shapes. Additionally unique, the letters are grouped by the 4 basic shapes, not in alphabetical order - a good option for visual learners. It's just well done. Whether your child would benefit from these methods, has never mastered cursive, or is a more traditional learner, this is a good fit. Writing lines are .75 with dotted midline. Each lesson (10 total) can be completed in one 45-60-minute session, or in (up to 4) shorter, weekly lessons spread apart. 11"x 8.5", 111 pgs, pb. You could stop at this point, but if you want more practice, check out the two books below.

Poems, Rhymes and Songs is a bridge to cursive level 2. It features the same format as the first book. For the first exercise, a few pages of targeted practice remind you of the shapes you will use (over, back-trace, loop left, downstroke, swing right, & mound round). Then you have a 5-line quote from a poem by R.L. Stevenson where student trace inside the words (they are outlined, not solid). These hollow-type letters are used in the first half of the book. When you flip it over, the student is now seeing an example and copying it onto blank lines. Self-assessment at the bottom of the page (in the form of checking boxes) reminds students to apply the strategies learned in the first book. 78 pgs, pb.

United States Presidents and Citizens is level 2. Similar to the bridge book above, students trace inside the words and copy passages on a page. There is a small review of the shapes you will use at the top of each page, but not the actual exercises to do. Each page offers interesting knowledge of historic Americans. Again, there is a self-check at the bottom of each page. This program is just so well done! 78 pgs, pb. ~ Sara

First granddaughter loved this handwriting method. She liked the verbal and visual cues to remember how to form letters and now I am ordering another for the younger sister who is excited to go through the book as well.

This cursive learning process makes so much sense to me, and I want to try it for my daughter who had a struggle trying to understand how to shape the letters. Hopefully it will be a better cursive experience this year!

My children are 12 and 13 and we haven't done cursive. This program looks like it will help them learn, without being "babyish".

I wanted an easier way to reintroduce cursive since schools seem to have faltered in keeping cursive fresh in young minds.

Good method
I like the way this is taught - break things down into basic strokes and only have a few strokes to teach. This is a good way for older kids to learn.

I don't like the way some of the letters look in this style of cursive. But, I'm just using the workbook as a guide and teaching my own way with it. Some of the letters look more elementary and some just look odd to me (lowercase b is probably the most obvious example).

If you know how to write in cursive this is a great method that can be adapted to teach a more traditional cursive style faster.

Well laid out and thoughtful instruction
This is the first cursive curriculum we have used that has made a HUGE difference in the way my son writes. By the end of the first week I could see a difference! Couldn’t recommend it highly enough.

This method of teaching cursive makes so much sense. I have used it with children and highly recommend it for both children and adults.
