Publisher Description:

Have you ever desired that your children learn more than one subject at a time? How about learning God's Word through handwriting?

His Story Handwriting™ and Memory Master Books™ makes this possible. Your children can learn to write in cursive while learning about God and His Word!

This book is an excellent resource for learning and practicing print as well as doing copywork. While your students learn and practice cursive, they will also be learning God's Word. You can also use the Scripture in this book as a memorization tool.

Exploring Handwriting Through Scripture is strategically designed to make your student successful. At the beginning of the book the student masters their cursive by tracing the Scripture provided. Then the book gradually removes tracing so your student can successfully write independently using the correct sized writing lines provided in the book.

Copywork is an opportunity for your student to practice their handwriting using meaningful content rather than random sentences often seen in a practice workbook. These books from HisStoryHandwriting use the King James Bible. All books include scripture, and some are exclusively scripture. Each book begins with individual letter instruction and practice of upper and lower case letters. Then you get into the lessons which begin with a page of vocabulary words needed to understand the text. Your student is shown a line of text (with a top, bottom and midline) and they write their version directly below each word. They have to mimic the spacing as well as the lettering. Each sentence can take between 2-4 lines and some of the words in the student lines are dotted for tracing (even at the cursive level.)  The print books have wider lines at 1cm, while the cursive books lines are 0.5cm wide. The look of the writing is a traditional style, meaning it has ball and stick letters in the print and the cursive has a slight slant and is not too loopy. Students appreciate meaningful practice. The vocabulary alone is worth using these as a supplement to your school day. You can then pull some of the words for a spelling/vocab test at the end of the week. Have the kids incorporate the content into a writing/journal assignment. You don't have to be studying "astronomy" in science class to add an astronomy handwriting book - it can be a complementary topic and add some variety to the course. The publisher recommends 15-20 minutes a day, or 15-30 minutes 3x a week. All books are spiral bound and printed on both sides of the page. Not reproducible. The more expensive books have 396 pp, and the smaller books have 112 pp. 8.5" x 11". ~Sara

My highschoolers need more cursive practice and I was looking for something they could work on for a few minutes every day.

My older children need a refresher in course in neat handwriting. I like that it also incorporates Scripture for the children to memorize.

We really liked Exploring Handwriting through US Geography.

I wanted scriptural daily practice.

This has religious connotations. The school system in this small derelict village, which I call home, taught cursive ineffectually. My son can only write his name. These are tax dollars at work.

Very Disappointed
I was hoping for this book to be cursive practice but most of it is tracing. Waste of time and money for me. My homeschooler is not in kindergarten that she has to trace. Also, it's not a very thick book so if you homeschool and need daily copy work this one isn't the right one.

Satisfied with this book
We are using this book for our 3rd grade son. He has previously learned ABeka handwriting. We have found this book to be easier to use than A Beka. (The letters are less slanted and do not have so many loops.) The writing still looks very nice. It is helping him to write more neatly. The only thing I wish the book had is a formation guide. Overall I'm satisfied with this product and will likely use other books in this series.
