Product Description:

Providing both instruction and practice in traditional cursive, this one, multi-age volume uses straight-forward teaching the IEW way. Stroke order is emphasized (c, i, loop, and hill starters for lowercase; top circle, top check, drop down, slash up, curvy top, salute, from the floor, and backwards loop starters for uppercase) as well as the importance of consistent practice. Tasks 1-12 take the student through the lowercase letters; tasks 13-24, the capital letters. Tasks 25-32 provide inspiring quotes as copywork. Quotes are taken from a wide variety of persons including Dr. Seuss, Socrates, and Audrey Hepburn (but no Christian content). Lines are 1/2" inch wide with dotted middles but change to 5/16" inch with dotted middles partway through the copywork. Includes reproducible extra sheets with 5/16" inch lines. Several downloads accompany the purchase of this course: reproducible practice sheets and two audio talks by Andrew Pudewa ("Paper and Pen"; "On Writing"). Includes a cardstock sheet with a sample alphabet and a list of the starters. 114 pgs, spiral-bound ~ Janice

Publisher Description:

For students of all ages who are either new to the art or who have already learned cursive and need a refresher, this course resource provides clear instruction in upper and lower-case letter formation, reproducible practice sheets, and high-quality source material for meaningful copy work.

Why learn cursive?

Studies show that cursive helps with the problem of letter reversals, spacing issues within and between words, and even short attention spans. The title, Cursive Knowledge, gives a nod to the phrase, "curse of knowledge," which occurs when an individual unknowingly assumes that others have the background to understand a concept. For students of all ages who are either new to the art or who have already learned cursive and need a refresher, this course resource provides clear instruction in upper and lower-case letter formation, reproducible practice sheets, and high-quality source material for meaningful copy work.

These materials span grades and include both instruction and practice.

My third grader was struggling with cursive. After trying a sample of Cursive Knowledge, he was much improved, so we are purchasing to finish the course at our own pace.

a very nice book
I got this for my 8th grader who had forgotten how to write cursive. He's using it over the summer daily and it is easy to use and breaks down letters by shape. Its not too basic, and there's lots of room for practice.

Fantastic program for kids and adults!
I got this for my 4th grader but once it arrived, we decided to work through it together. I love how easy it is to plow through the program OR slow down and expand. Great product.

Excellent cursive curriculum
For beginners or advanced, this book is fantastic! I like the wide lines and easy practice pages. It has helped my teenage boys with their handwriting and I love the ease of the lessons.

Teaches well
My boys (ages 10 and 12) did well with this program. I had tried another cursive curriculum when they were younger, but felt it lacked in teaching the mechanics of cursive. This book teaches and shows them every small stroke, and explains it in a fun way they can understand. It would be good for younger children as well. I highly recommend it.
