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

These materials span grades and include both instruction and practice.

Really you could do this on your own but if you like tiking off boxes, go for it.

One caveat, It calls for practice sheets. I didn't get those so I bought a different practice book for review days.

This is COMPLETELY secular
Our charter school would not pay for this lesson book for "fear" of it having religious teachings in it. We bought it ourselves and it has absolutely NO religious talk at all. It is about 8 pages of a lesson schedule. It only tells you what to do each day in the workbook. That's it. No lesson notes or anything. You really don't NEED it unless you want to have it scheduled for you.
