DaisyCitronelle, ALAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Purchase this one and forfeit two others!September 14, 2013DaisyCitronelle, ALAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Last year I ordered my student "A Reason for Handwriting" (Book C, I believe). It was the first designated handwriting book in this series for cursive writing. My student did well with it, but his penmanship is still not where I'd like it to be. With that in mind, I found this book when trying to order curriculum for this year. My thoughts were this would help him improve his print and then reinforce what he learned last year with cursive. Ultimately, I think/know this is going to take longer that the 180 days that are allotted for school. It's a rather thick book and takes the child completely through all lower and uppercase letters in both print and cursive. I think it would be wiser to just invest in this ONE book rather than purchase the print and cursive books separately.
One of the things I really love about these handwriting books is that they also have Scripture verses for the children to copy with each of the weekly lessons. (When they are first being introduced to the letters themselves and not practicing words and Scriptures, it is only the letters they'll practice, no Scriptures.)

My oldest son transitioned to cursive very easily in 2nd grade and has continued to write real well. Even if public schools take cursive writing out, my children will know how to write and read it and this series helps them much!
LindeeGreeley, COAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5I love the format of this curriculumJuly 31, 2012LindeeGreeley, COAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Just a little every day until the student can write an entire sentence or two. There is no question of where to start formation as there are printed on the lessons the dots where the letter should begin. Then, the lessons are based on Bible verses- what a great way to get God's Word into the mind of the student. A great idea!!!
RyansMomSan Diego, CAAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Copy writing with Scripture -- wonderful!September 9, 2011RyansMomSan Diego, CAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book was recommended to me by a friend that had previously used it.
I love the fact that each day my son is practicing writing a portion of a scripture verse. The final day (day 5), he copies the entire verse onto a page in the back, colors it, and we laminate it for a gift.
He getting handwriting practice, scripture memorization, and also working to bless someone else with a gift. What could be better?
Q: Does this book have practice pages in the beginning? Books A & B start with about 19 practice lessons at the beginning. I am wondering if this Transition book also has practice lessons at the beginning? Thanks!
Yes, this book includes practice pages for lessons 1 through 10 at the beginning of the book.
