Thirty-six weeks of daily practice! Kids will definitely not feel overwhelmed by these short handwriting exercises: half-page assignments on Mondays-Thursdays and a full-page assignment on Fridays. By writing words and sentences on a daily basis, your child's letter formation and spacing will gradually improve. As an added benefit, kids will learn about the continents, animals, famous inventors, and more as they practice their handwriting! The last four weeks of practice are used to make an alphabet book. Both cursive books are identical in content. They differ only in the writing style used. Likewise, with the manuscript books. All workbook pages have black and white illustrations that can be colored. Anh Daily Handwriting Practice, Modern Manuscript is more than just a handwriting book; it is a learning tool that helps developing young minds practice basic skills in an interesting and unique way. For example, as students learn to clearly write, The gray ant is in third place, they are reinforcing their understanding of colors and ordinal numbers. Students write letters, words, and sentences about a variety of content-area topics appropriate for the primary classroom. Monday through Thursday, the weekly subjects for writing exercises include nutrition, our solar system, pets, and vehicles. On Friday, a full-page exercise draws the topic to a close by reviewing what was learned earlier that week. This book is a useful and effective teaching tool because each letter is introduced and practiced before students are asked to use it. Skills reinforced that help keep handwriting legible include: correct letter formation, letter placement, spacing between letters, and spacing between words.
