I am so excited to share my new handwriting curriculum with you! I wanted a curriculum with adorable activities that promote hand-eye coordination to go along with solid, easy to follow letter formation practice combined with copy work while ALSO supporting phonics and sight word mastery. So here it is!
We use our signature creative way to teach handwriting concepts such as the Cam the Cat puppet and his changing C, magic-e games, and our friend Gus the fox to help remember how to write numbers! All the fun characters from our early reading books are back!
Book 1of our handwriting curriculum follows along with Set 1 of our super popular early reading books. Know how to read everything you learn to write! 94 pages of beautiful black and white writing and drawing activities. Plus tons of great tips on teaching your child how to write correctly.
Book 2continues off where Book 1 left ended and focuses learning the formation of final letters, numbers and punctuation to complete the entire alphabet. Learning to copy phrases and sight words is also developed in this book. 80+ pages.
Book 3develops mastery of handwriting sentences, and longer passages, and of course all our fun activities that match up with our reading program. 80+ pages.
It's MUCH more than just copying and coloring. It's copy work made FUN and beautiful. Just a few of our activities are:
Play baseball and practice handwriting!
Decode the secret messages from Pam and Jack!
Color and cut out a face mask and pretend to be a fun character while writing!

This is the PRINT version. You can purchase PRINT or D'NEALIAN. Our D'Nealian version is HERE. Each are different handwriting scripts. D'Nealian has less strokes, and makes an easier jump to cursive, but can be trickier to start. The Print version is usually easier for younger children and is standard taught in public schools.
