Handwriting 1 Home School Kit 3ED
Using the same basic teaching format, this edition incorporates something extra - 204 extended practice pages for all of the handwriting skill practice reviews. While this makes the handwriting book appear to be about three times as big, it gives a lot more than three times the practice space. Students practice writing with Scripture, poetry, words, phrases and sentences. Still in color with lots of illustrations.
These materials are specifically graded and include both instruction and practice.
We are pleased to be able to distribute BJU Press curriculum to our customers. Most homeschoolers are already familiar with their materials. For those who are not, BJU is a Christian university located in South Carolina that produces and markets curriculum materials for Christian schools as well as home schools. Probably the most homeschool-friendly full-curriculum supplier, they have not only accommodated homeschoolers, but have continually worked to make their materials better suited to the homeschooling family. Many of their courses now contain manuals written specifically for the home school setting, and visuals and supplemental materials have been "pared down" from the bulkier visuals still used in classrooms. While other curriculum suppliers initially frowned on distributing teacher materials to homeschoolers, and provided only expensive classroom versions, Bob Jones quickly embraced homeschoolers, readily allowing them access to teacher's editions and, eventually, producing less expensive spiral-bound or paperbound versions to save money for homeschooling families. Their materials are all top quality. They are professionally prepared, educationally sound, and Biblically-based. Used in Christian school classrooms across the country for years and constantly improved, they are courses you can trust in your homeschool as well. We have long been fans of Bob Jones curriculum materials, having used courses in almost every subject area for one child or another through the years. In our particular situation (seven children, Mom and Dad sharing in teaching as well as in running Rainbow Resource Center), a well-constructed, teacher-ready course can be a God-send. Although we have used a variety of methods and curriculums in our homeschool through the years (and continue to do so), we strongly feel that the Bob Jones materials we have used have helped to produce excellent, college-ready students. Unless you have a particularly strong aversion to textbooks of any kind, at any level, we highly recommend these materials to you.
Curriculum can be found by subject area in our catalog; see index for page numbers. A free scope and sequence is available below, with specific information by grade level.
Manuscript handwriting is a Pre-Cursive stroke, not unlike D'Nealian, with most letters formed in one stroke. Student worktexts are consumable. Teacher's Editions contain daily lesson plans centered on a theme. Both are included in Home School Kits. Handwriting charts are rather large and intended for display in front of a classroom. You will need paper also - select from the variety of papers available in this section according to the age of the child. The KJV of the Bible is used for Scripture copywork.
