Product Description

Cursive First advocates initially teaching cursive to help improve long-term penmanship skills, eliminate reversals, and help children read others' handwriting. Students will learn to write numerals, the cursive alphabet, and common phonemes--perfect for both beginning writers and older kids transitioning from print to cursive. Teachers will instruct students on forming numerals and letters through large motor and tactile/kinesthetic activities before beginning to write and use fine-motor skills. This package coordinates with the sold-separately Spell to Write and Read and The WISE Guide.

The Teacher's Manual features an overview of the benefits and rationale for the approach, reference tools, guidelines, sequence for using the program with either beginning or transitioning writers, troubleshooting ideas for students with visual and perception problems, and practice sheet masters.

A set of loose-leaf, reproducible, Practice Sheets provides both student instruction and hands-on practice. Narrow 7/16" center-dashed lines are provided to write on. Capital and lower-case letters are taught separately, with connections between letters taught from the very beginning through the context of multi-letter phonograms. As they write, children are encouraged to say the phonograms aloud.

The Cursive Phonogram Card Set features 28 quarter-page cards printed on bright yellow cardstock, and which are designed to be cut apart and laminated by the customer. A model of the letter with pronunciation key and instructions for cursive letter formation are featured on one side; the other side features a large-size model letter. A number sheet is also provided.

This kit includes:

  • Cursive First Teacher's Guide, 32 pages, softcover
  • 28 Instruction Cards + numbers, printed on 8 sheets of cardstock
  • 45 Practice Sheets, reproducible loose-leaf

    I would highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to learn or teach cursive. I taught my two children using this and they have really nice cursive. I really liked that I could make copies of the pages for my kids to use and that we could use it over and over if we wanted. It was really simple, just a half sheet a day and that was it.

    I have used Cursive First to teach handwriting to 3 of my children with 2 more kids to go. This program is easy to use and affordable! I purchased it once and am able to photocopy the pages for each of my children. I love that I can use Cursive First to not only teach handwriting but to also introduce phonetic sounds to my young children. One of the challenges of teaching handwriting to children is getting them to form the letter in the correct direction. Cursive First solves this problem with simple dialogue for each letter so that the child learns to write the letters correctly. This handwriting program works well with the Spell to Write and Read spelling and reading program if you are also looking for a phonics/spelling program for your child. A great program at an excellent price!
