Category Description for Pentime Handwriting Series:

This program is designed to teach children handwriting with a minimum of assistance. Eight black and white workbooks help students master the skill of manuscript writing, transition into cursive, and continue to build cursive skills using smaller and smaller lines. In the first workbook, students focus on writing the individual letters on wide lines with a dotted midline. The correct strokes are shown (and numbered) for each letter along with plenty of space for children to practice. The second book continues practice of upper and lowercase letters but adds words and sentences as well. In place of stroke guides, a dot on each letter shows children where to start forming the letter. The third book (Transition) reviews manuscript for 35 pages and then jumps into cursive handwriting for the remaining 60 pages of the book, where students learn the strokes for individual cursive letters and practice connecting them. The rest of the series allows children to fully master cursive writing as they continually practice by writing the letters and copying longer and longer paragraphs on increasingly smaller lines (rulings gradually decrease from 1/2" in Grade 3 to 5/16" in Grade 8). Paragraphs range from fun sentences to Bible verses (close to the ASV version) to excerpts from essays on nature. Captions in the older grades provide interesting facts, and pretty border sheets to color are scattered throughout. - Steph

Simple and easy way to learn cursive!
Carla N on Feb 18, 2021
We have used Handwriting Without Tears for years and enjoyed it. However, my last child wanted to do fancier cursive so we are giving this book a try.

I had such great results with my girl's attitudes when doing Cursive 4 that I'm having my 7 year old do Cursive 3, my 9 yo do 5 and my 11 yo do Cursive 6. We had done the Carson Dellosa and it was boring, we've done the Zaner-Blozer it was painfully slow. Sticking with what they usually beg me to do. Sometimes we put on some classical music and it a quiet time of writing and reflection. Big difference in our home.

My daughter likes to write about animals. I saw that both 5th and 6th grade cursive offers that. She definitely still needs practice writing in cursive and I like the looks of their practice work. Also, it's very inexpensive so it's worth a try!

I like how this combines cursive with printing practice at the bottom as well. My son needs practice with both and enjoys learning the facts while he writes.

Pentime is simple and has short lessons. The quotations are meaningful. Our elderly aunt has enjoyed receiving the occasional handwritten poem. Pentime makes a great addition to our Rod and Staff curriculum.

My son enjoys this book very much however I would prefer to have them right the same letter many more times over before they move on to the next. it is not enough practice sheets & he found writing paragraphs too difficult as the progression is not. Slow one.

Weightless handwriting
I love Pentime books! They are inexpensive and just the right amount of daily practice. My kids enjoy learning the information on plants and animals as they practice their penmanship.
