Product Description

A Reason for Handwriting provides a fun, meaningful approach to developing effective handwriting skills. Contextual lessons are built upon Scripture verses chosen for their proper letter combinations and inspirational content. The included "Border Sheets" provide a nice way to showcase newfound writing skills and serve as a fun coloring opportunity; at the end of each week, children copy their "Verse of the Week" on a perforated border sheet of their choosing, using their creativity to color and decorate their very best handwriting.

This Level T for Transition book features instruction on the transition from manuscript to cursive handwriting through practice writing letters, groups of letters, and Scripture. Correct alignment, slant, size, shape and spacing are emphasized. Practice sheets provide room to trace letters before writing them individually. Scripture verses are taken from The Living Bible. 178 pages, softcover.

For grades 2-3.

    Last 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.)

    The book is a bit heavy to carry around but it is a great source of valuable information for second graders, and the lessons taught are explained clearly.

    I am going on my 3rd child I am homeschooling and my kids comprehend this curriculum very well. 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!

    Just 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!!!

    This 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?
