Handwriting (K) is divided into 4 Units: Getting Started, Writing Letters, Writing Numerals, and Using What You Have Learned.
"Getting Started" introduces the basic strokes: lines (horizontal, vertical, slanted) and circles (clockwise and counterclockwise, or as the book describes them, "forward" and "backward"). There are a few pages of punch-out materials clearly designed for practicing these lines, but the instructions for using them are not included (probably in the Teacher Edition) and I could not figure out how they could be used in any productive way. Skipping them was not a problem.
"Writing Letters" introduces the letters in general order of increasing difficulty. Each letter is taught in its upper and lower form at the same time, upper on one page and lower on the next. There are about 12 opportunities to practice each letter form (ie, uppercase U) and three words to trace using that form. This isn't enough practice for mastery, so you may want to supplement with extra practice on K-ruled paper; copy/scan the pages to do them more than one time; or use other resources. We have done a lot using Kumon workbooks.
"Writing Numerals" is similar, but there is much less space dedicated to the numbers. I was disappointed by this because several numbers are tricky to write (2, 3, 5 are hard for my son). There are 2 numerals on each page, and about 8 opportunities to trace or write them. At the end of this section are more mysterious punch-outs.
"Using What You Have Learned" is a summary section with no tracing, just writing/copying. Numerals, words, and sentences are included.
This has been a useful resource for us, filling in the gaps left by our Kumon books. My son has gained some confidence in writing the numbers for his math work and in writing generally. Despite the lack of repetition I gave 4 stars because my child enjoys it and has requested that we do a page each weekday (I had considered stopping, since I'm using more Charlotte Mason methodology which generally introduces writing in the first grade). He sometimes is frustrated by the challenge of writing correctly but apparently the results are worth it to him!
