A Reason For Handwriting Student Worktext: Level T (Manuscript & Cursive)
Recommended for Grade 2 or 3. Includes both manuscript and cursive. 240 pages.
The Transitional work text is designed to facilitate a gradual shift from manuscript to cursive handwriting over the course of the school year. At your discretion, your child may review manuscript for as many as 29 weeks, or may transition earlier in the year and focus on learning and practicing cursive letters for up to 36 weeks.
Contents of the Transitional student work text include:
- 10 practice lessons reviewing manuscript letter formation,
- 27 weekly lessons in manuscript,
- 45 practice lessons introducing cursive letter formation,
- 27 weekly lessons in cursive,
Lessons provide 10-15 minutes of daily practice.
On days 1 - 3 of weekly lessons, your child writes letters and words from the week's Scripture verse. On day 4, he traces over the entire verse as written in the work text. On the final day, he'll select a Border Sheet from the back of the book, and write the week's Scripture verse in his best handwriting, then use his creativity to color the design on the Border Sheet.
