A Reason for Writing A - Grade 1
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 are taken from Psalms and Proverbs.

First year using this for handwriting, but so far we really like it.
We love the colorful pages and the extra practice pages for my little one. I love that they practice writing Gods word.
This is our favorite. We love the clear direction and visual examples. The repetition is something that my 6 year old needs. He loves the coloring as it provides a break between lessons. We saw great improvement after using the kindergarten one and are having the same result with this level.
My kids love this handwriting curriculum. They learn Bible verses and can pick and color a picture to keep or gift to someone every week.
This was a great product to get my little guy excited about handwriting practice. He loves that at the end of the week he gets to pick a picture to color. Even better is that he loves to gift his picture to friends and family!
