Master Books Cursive for Grades 3 - 6

There are so many benefits of learning to write in cursive, including positive influences on spelling, composition skills, motor skills, and word recall. It has also been shown to support the reading and writing skills of students with dyslexia. Catch on to Cursive is a 36-week, elementary-level course that includes two schedules to accommodate younger and older students. Through full-color worksheets and exercises, your student will learn to recognize and create precise letters. This unique, whole-child approach is a fun and unforgettable way to learn cursive penmanship. Your student will join Skeeter, Anna, and Susie on a fun writing and fishing adventure. Every letter will be covered for three days. On the third day, there is a weigh-in section, and every few weeks, students will participate in a Fishing Derby or Gear Up activities where they review letters they have learned up to that point. This gives a fun way for built-in review and builds up their confidence. Watch for Weigh-In challenges throughout the course so they can complete the challenges. 528 pages, softcover. Grades 3-6.

Perfect your students' cursive handwriting skills! Book I focuses on cursive letters, words, numerals, sentences, spacing, and size through copying quotes, paragraphs, and real-life examples of where handwriting may be needed. 64 non-reproducible pages, softcover. Grades 8-12+. 2nd Edition.

    Learning to Write

    Inspired by the Montessori teaching method of the three-period lesson, HeadU’s Writing Lab gives children three different ways to learn letters and letter sounds and to practice handwriting and reading. After putting together 18 different word puzzles made up of pieces that are combinations of letters and pictures, children will form words using letter tiles that match the puzzle, and then practice writing the letters and words with a dry-erase marker on a whiteboard grid.  As they practice handwriting and letter sounds, youngsters will strengthen their fine motor skills and shape recognition. The set includes 72 letter and letter puzzle tiles, 3 dry-erase word house boards, 3 small dry-erase cards, 1 dry-erase marker, and instructions, in a sturdy storage box. Ages 3 to 6.

    Introduce your little one to writing their letters with this Montessori inspired writing activity. Each of the 25 sturdy whiteboards has two usable sides. One side has the outline of a letter with handwriting strokes and the picture of an object that starts with the letter.  The second side has three words that start with the letter, printed on a grid. As children trace the letters using the dry-erase marker that’s included, they will begin to develop fine motor skills, letter recognition, and awareness of letter sounds. The grid lines help them learn to write uniformly, with proper letter size and spaces between letters as they write words. 25 6¼” x 4½” whiteboard cards, 1 dry-erase pen. Ages 3 to 6.

Many pages of demonstration scripts provide helpful accompaniment to the clear instructions.
