Incorporated into the writing exercises in Daily Handwriting Practice, Traditional Cursive, are many other basic areas of learning important to developing minds. For example, on the topic, "What is work," students learn about simple tools and the physics applied in using them.
Students write letters, words, and sentences about a variety of content area topics appropriate for the classroom. Monday through Thursday, the weekly subjects for writing exercises range from famous inventors to famous quotations, amazing hunters to the water cycle. On Friday, a full-page exercise draws the topic to a close by reviewing what was learned earlier that week.
