As far as the actual letter formation, I do find fault with not showing the "connectors" on all the letters- how a vowel connects to the preceding letter can be left up to the child's discretion and, with no basis for comparison if they are writing without the book, my daughter gets flustered because it doesn't "look right." Maybe this is the new way to write, but they way I learned - with beginning and ending strokes for every letter, takes the guesswork out of it for the child.
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.
write letters; manuscript and cursive. They have served us well through
the years and I have two sons still in books C and F.
