Publisher Description:

Have you ever desired that your children learn more than one subject at a time? How about learning the Geography of the United States through handwriting?

His Story Handwriting™ and Memory Master Books™ makes this possible. Your children can learn to print while learning about the Geography of the United States!

This book is an excellent resource for learning and practicing print as well as doing copywork. While your students learn and practice printing their letters and numbers, they will also be learning about the Geography of the United States. You can also use the facts in this book as a memorization tool. As a bonus, at the end of the handwriting/copywork section of each state, there is a formated page for a brief state report.

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

GREAT VALUE: Our books have more pages upon which to practice print and copywork than any handwriting book we have ever seen. This makes our books, page for page, less expensive than any other handwriting or copywork books on the market and with much more content for the student to explore.

From learning great penmanship to Charlotte Mason style copywork, as well as Classical Conversations and other classical memorization teaching methods, His Story Handwriting™ and Memory Master Books™ are a must!

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 son said this looked interesting.

My 10-yr-old boy wants to learn cursive so he can read early US documents. Since he needs to learn US states and capitols, this book bridges the three topics.

Excited to have children practice their cursive, while learning about geography. A great way to integrate learning about the 50 states.

My rising 6th grader needs to improve her handwriting and we will be studying the U.S. this fall - this aligns fantastically to allow both objectives to be accomplished!

Does the book become redundant - is it the same pattern for each state (in the short sample on Alabama I see: when it joined the union, what region it is in, the capitol, and major rivers) is this the same for every state or do they change it up a bit with other types of information? Also in the print edition I see there is a question page on California. Are there question pages/maps for each state? I'm looking to buy the cursive edition. Thanks!
Lerah on Jul 26, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We recently purchased the cursive edition and are just getting started. Every state pretty much has the same questions to fill out- in cursive, of course- regarding the basic facts and locations of the state. Maps are given with a map key and important geographic features for the state. My 4th grader is really looking forward to this material and he does great with knowing what to expect in each lesson. I expect it will be a great resource for him!
Do they teach the capital Q that looks like a 2?
User on Apr 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I like the more traditional Q as well. I just teach my child any modifications before hand and correct them ahead of time in the book.
