Category Description for Italic Handwriting (Getty-Dubay):

Mom's horrible handwriting inspired us to use an italic handwriting program with our kids. It's difficult not to produce at least legible writing in Italics. Another plus is that manuscript flows into cursive - letters don't completely change, they just join. Not only does this seem sensible to us, but the many compliments the children have received on their handwriting have further encouraged us in this approach. (Children begin moving into cursive writing in Level C.) The last level gets into calligraphy toward the end. From there, follow up with a good calligraphy book for Jr. High/High School and continue handwriting as an art form! Instruction Manual applies to all levels.




These materials are specifically graded and include both instruction and practice.

I used this curriculum growing up. It was simple and fun. The transition from print to cursive was logical and flowed well. There are no extraneous loops or swirls. I have had many compliments over the years on the legibility of my writing, even when I am writing fast and sloppily (for me).

I've used this series for many years and now my daughter is using it with her children. The books are easy to use and show good results with handwriting.

I was homeschooled from 4th grade through 12th. I already had decent handwriting by that time but I noticed many of my homeschooled peers were sorely lacking in that area. When I was in college, I met a fellow homeschooler with beautiful handwriting and he told me that his mother had used this curriculum from the beginning. Since then I knew I would use it with my own children and I'm so excited to get started!

I'm interested in teaching cursive first, but wanted to see the whole program. I've always loved calligraphy. I see that my Kindergartner does, too, and this italic resource will give here the steps to get there one day!

Great reviews and I liked the style of handwritten as well as it leading up to calligraphy

We liked the look of letters, and how it appeared easy to transition to cursive (which we haven't tried yet). This year we will do Book C so we will find out...

My son is eleven and has horrible penmenship. should I start at the beginning with book a?
A shopper on Jan 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Personally, I would not. Book A is a little too easy even for my 7 year old (boy). I would start with B for an eleven year old. You're still doing print at that point so you can work on the mechanics of each letter. In Book C you begin to introduce cursive in the second half of the book, so if you don't think he's ready for that and you just want to just work on print, I'd start with Book B.

Great for a typical kindergartener
Getty-Dubay Italic has been amazingly effective for my 5-yo son. He seems to be just about average/typical in terms of his fine motor skills development and willingness/eagerness to learn to write.

I wanted to choose a penmanship program that produced nice handwriting and that made no bigger deal than it was worth... Some programs that are popular seemed to be overly remedial and overly thorough for my son's needs. Why present a bigger handwriting program to kids when all we want is a nice handwriting? No manipulatives to mess with, just a series of simple black and white workbooks. Understated, yet working like a charm.

Highly recommended for someone like my son - no special ability either directions, just your typical child who can use a better handwriting...which is most kids, really. One added bonus is that my handwriting has improved, too, because I now write diction sentences in Getty-Dubay italic font.
