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 print 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 is 9, and struggles with legible handwriting, many printing books seem very "young" for him, yet it is printing he needs to be proficient in before we move on to cursive. Hoping this fits the bill!

My kids are home schooling due to COVID 19 and I thought this would be a fun way to combine handwriting and geography learning together. Plus my 9 year old can do the cursive while my 6 year old works on his print and I can teach them together.

Compliments my history and geography curriculum and adds handwriting which is also helpful!

my 10 year old still needs to work on writing legibly. This looks like a great way to review geography as well!

Can one book be used for a full semester if used as directed - 15min a day?
Kala on Mar 21, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Depending on how many days a week you use this book, it can easily be spread all the way through a year or be done more quickly in about 60 days. Each state has 4 pages... 3 handwriting practice and 1 with state facts... and there are 24 pages of basic Alphabet practice pages in the beginning.
Do you use the same book for all grades? Or is there a separate book for K, 1st, 2nd and so on? Thanks!
A shopper on Jun 29, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I use this book for K-2. They have other books that include cursive.

Disappointed
I was hoping that there would be more instruction on letter formation and combinations of strokes and letters. This had none. It is essentially copy work for students who already know how to form the letters.
