A Reason for Writing D - Grade 4
Our price: $18.95
Handwriting, especially in this era of word processors, is a fairly low priority compared to other subjects. However, if you are going to make handwriting a part of your curriculum, here is something to think about. For over a dozen years we sold and used another handwriting program. The end result for us was less than stellar, even if the children's handwriting had duplicated what was pictured in the exercise books, as I would question the time spent on copying meaningless sentences. Because we know that handwriting is a learned motor skill requiring regular practice, doesn't it seem that if your child is going to labor over something with his mind and hands, he should also engage his heart? A Reason for Writing does all three.
Includes scripture border sheets
With each 10- to 15-minute daily lesson built around Bible verses, content is not only instructional, but also inspirational. Plus, at the end of each week your children will be given the opportunity to apply excellence to their work as they copy their verse-of-the-week onto their choice of "Scripture Border Sheets." Done with care, these completed sheets are worthy of sharing with friends and family.
Living Bible Paraphrase
A Reason for Writing uses a Living Bible paraphrase for its verses. For those dyed-in-the-wool KJV-only families, let me suggest that even this Scriptural rendition is better for your child to toil over than the trivial sentence about the environment, common in other handwriting programs. Each workbook is full color.
Verses taken from the Gospels.

My son has never enjoyed practicing cursive handwriting, however he has enjoyed these short lessons that are straight from the scriptures! The pictures are colorful and we enjoy practicing the entire scripture verse at the end of each week!
My 4th grader enjoys writing in cursive. A Reason for Writing D - Grade 4 has the right amount of repetition. We love the bible verse at the end of each unit.
This program performed best. We have tried 2 other programs (4 kids) and still like this one the best.
We love the bright pages. The cursive is pretty and easy to follow along with.
My daughter enjoys being able to do cursive independently. Encourages learning memory verse, we have fun talking about verses.
