My kids think it is fun to do.

Most handwriting curricula completely skip practicing the proper formation of letters after the first book or two.

I have already ordered the D book for my son for next year and the K book for my 5 year old.

I purchased this book for my 2nd grade son to transition him from printing to cursive. The book is laid out wonderfully - you start out by learning to write all of your letters and by linking them. Then you begin writing Bible verses - you do a little each day and by the end of the week you write the full verse on really cute paper the book provides that can be colored or decorated. My son's handwriting has been fantastic. The only criticism I have for this book is it does not teach the child to start the lower case letters on the bottom line. When starting on the bottom line for each lower case letter it makes it easier to link them later on. I explained this to my son and had him start each one on the bottom line and there were no problems. I have already ordered the D book for my son for next year and the K book for my 5 year old. When I find something I like I stick with it!!

We have homeschooled for over 15 years now and tried multiple handwriting programs over the years, usually abandoning them for remarkable lack of success. I finally set out to find a handwriting curriculum that would address our specific needs.

I wanted one that would review the formation of each letter with arrows and dots to indicate where to start the pencil and what direction to do. I also wanted one that would go over each individual letter of the alphabet *before* asking the children to write full words. When they are on the letter a and haven't learned to write any further letters, HOW are they supposed to write the word APPLE appropriately, much less the full sentences that often appear on the bottom of the first pages? And lastly, I wanted one that would help my older students to correct their bad habits in handwriting.

Most handwriting curricula completely skip practicing the proper formation of letters after the first book or two. Most cursive handwriting programs assume that the student already has a proper grasp of printing and are not in need of a review nor in need of addressing bad habits they may have fallen into.

When I found this handwriting series, I was thrilled because it met these specific needs. We used the Transition level to address the bad habits my older students had formed in their printing and previous attempts at cursive. Level C has a great review of cursive letters prior to diving into the writing practice. We bought level A for our beginning writers and are just completely pleased with this program on all these levels.

I wish I had used the other books leading up to this book. But we jumped in using this series for cursive. It is something the children can do by themselves. My kids think it is fun to do.

Colorful lessons. Easy to use. Teacher manual is useless however. Save money and just get the book.
