Publisher Description:

Logic of English wanted a custom font that was developmentally appropriate for young students and helpful for students struggling with handwriting. We worked with David Occhino Design to create the School LOE™ font, which they released in 2013 in both manuscript and cursive. The Rhythm of Handwriting Student Book guides you through all the steps needed to help your student develop rhythmic, fluid, comfortable handwriting.

Cursive Program Highlights

  • All lowercase letters begin on the baseline.
  • Uppercase letters only connect to the next letter if they end on the baseline.
  • The capital Q has been simplified to reflect the manuscript version.
  • Letter formation is closely matched to the manuscript font to facilitate ease in transition from one to another.

The Rhythm of Handwriting Cursive Student Book can stand alone as a handwriting curriculum, but we recommend supplementing the workbook with one or more of our Handwriting Supplements with the program.

If you are teaching Foundations, Rhythm of Handwriting instruction is completely incorporated into the curriculum, so you do not need to buy the handwriting book separately.

Category Description for COMPLETE PROGRAMS - LANGUAGE ARTS:

Language arts programs listed in this section cover most areas of language arts (reading/literature, writing, grammar, spelling and handwriting) in one curriculum, although some skill areas may be covered with less intensity than a focused, stand-alone course.


Category Description for Logic of English Essentials Curriculum:

After reading Uncovering the Logic of English, I was expecting a very organized, thorough, easy to teach course. I was not disappointed. Gathered into a mere 40 lessons, the course imbues students with an almost comprehensive understanding of English as applied to reading, writing, and spelling. While the course was originally conceived for 8-year-old to adult students who are not reading at grade level, it may be used effectively with children as young as five or "young emerging readers". To begin the lessons, students must have:

Developed phonemic awareness (realize that letters and letter combinations make sounds and can distinguish sounds)

Lest the prerequisites scare you away from beginning this program, the author has provided advice and direction for preparing your child for the lessons. A fourteen-page Before You Begin section provides a framework for teaching all three. She recommends spending 30 preliminary sessions doing so. While the basic instructions are here, you may want to incorporate some other supplementary materials for this preparatory segment. Many good products are available to make this part easier on you. As a side note, she also presents a compelling case for teaching your beginner cursive rather than manuscript writing. >

Five different implementation schedules are provided to accommodate any age and level of proficiency from the youngest beginner to remedial adult. For the youngest student, the course will progress at the rate of one lesson every two weeks (80 weeks), whereas the older, remedial student will complete a lesson every one to two days.

These materials span grades and include both instruction and practice.




Category Description for The Rhythm of Handwriting:

Originally part of the Logic of English program, The Rhythm of Handwriting is now available as a stand-alone course that teaches motion mastery and reinforces phonemic awareness. Beginning students practice letters using large-motor movements first. While the author of that program prefers that students learn cursive first, books are available in both manuscript and cursive. Both use a style that minimizes fine motor articulation and develops rhythmic handwriting. Lessons include a variety of line sizes making them usable for students at different levels of fine motor development. Letters are taught in groups based on initial stroke; a logical approach that also encourages muscle memory. Supplements to the handwriting program include tactile cards and quick reference charts. Each 2-page reference chart has a fold-out flap demonstrating the 14 types of strokes needed to make all the letters. The body of the chart shows how to form example letters grouped by type of stroke. Letters are formed on a short line segment with midline, accompanied by written instructions. And, for the teacher, the 11 steps for teaching handwriting are included as a reminder.

I've been enjoying the Logic of English curriculum for teaching my younger son to read, but want his older brother (age 7) to improve his handwriting by learning cursive.

This is the second time I have ordered this workbook. I love the verbal instructions. They are like dance moves. My boys have a hard time reading and writing. My eldest's print is illegible. But his cursive handwriting is beautiful. My youngest struggles but the verbal cues are super helpful.

Want to teach cursive to my 5 year old. Like the rhythm method idea.
Ashley R on Jul 31, 2019
same as above

Works so well for the oldest I'm going to use it with the next boy.
Casey H on Mar 7, 2019
It makes more sense than manuscript, and helps dyslexics and kids with reversal issues to solve part of those problems because cursive letters are hard to reverse!

We need the structured practice.

It has precise instructions on how to form the letters and my daughter struggles with forming certain cursive letters.

Other kids used it, worked well
Bethany G on Apr 19, 2018
i like how LOE teaches cursive from the same starting point of all the letters 9most of them). It makes it easier to teach and easier to understand.
Katherine R on Mar 6, 2018
My older daughter used this curriculum to learn cursive and it went well. So, we're trying it again for our youngest.

Is this fun? Also: does this rely on tracing or does it use other methods, are the margins substantial in size, and does anyone know how this compares to Cursive First?
A shopper on Jun 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This does not use a tracing method. It teaches the student a series of loops, swing-ups, etc., and then uses those movements to begin to form letters. My son has dysgraphia (a writing disability), and has struggled with all other methods of learning cursive. But this workbook finally did the job. He's writing beautifully, and I'm so thankful for this workbook! I would definitely recommend it.

It takes the stress out of cursive writing
Love their approach to cursive writing. We tried so many different cursive writing books to no avail. My daughter had trouble forming some letters and connecting them to write words. This books breaks the letter by categories and each category has special marks or characters associated with how to create various parts of that letter such as a roll or curve for letter a. But what I think helps too is they actually help the children see the paper as divided into parts topline, midline, and baseline which helps them to write neatly as they take in boundaries of those line. Kids also repeat the little sayings when writing the letter so it sticks example for letter i swing up to the midline, down to the baseline, pick up your pencil and dot.. My daughter is now so excited that she can write cursive with ease and stress free.
