TxSunshineAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great for reinforcingJuly 5, 2011TxSunshineAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My children are about to start taking formal classes and I wanted them to work on their handwriting skills. I should have ordered the later books for my older children, but that was my mistake. It gets the job done. I have 2 boys and I think italics cursive is the way to go for them, my daughter prefers traditional cursive but she is very artistic and I think that this will just add to her skills in lettering.
A H Coleman4 Stars Out Of 5June 23, 2010A H ColemanI began my 5 year olds doing ball and stick method, and then I found this writing style. It has been hard to transition them into doing it this way, but I bought these in the hopes that they will have neater handwriting...especially when it comes to them learning how to write in cursive.
Steve5 Stars Out Of 5June 15, 2010SteveI purchased this book for summer review because my daughter is transferring into a charter school that teaches Getty-Dubay handwriting. It really is a much better handwriting system than the ball and stick system used by most schools. It is faster and has a distinctive and noticeably neater look, with a smoother transition to cursive down the road. It is somewhat difficult for kids who have already learned ball-and-stick to transition. It's just a matter of tons of practice. Teaching handwriting at home is like teaching a teenager to drive -- better if someone else does it!!!
