A Reason for Handwriting - Level A
A Reason for Handwriting Level A Student Worktext begins with 30 lessons reviewing manuscript letter formation. After completing the review, the worktext proceeds to 28 weekly lessons, providing 10-15 minutes of daily practice.
On days one to three, students write letters and words from the week's Scripture verse. On day four, students transcribe the entire verse on a piece of practice paper.
On the final day, students select a Border Sheet from the back of the book and write the week's Scripture verse in their best handwriting. They can then use their creativity to color the design on their Border Sheet.
About the A Reason for Handwriting Series
Handwriting, especially in this era of word processors, is a relatively 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.
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 Handwriting does all three.
With each 10- to 15-minute daily lesson built around Bible verses, the 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." These completed sheets are worth sharing with friends and family.
A Reason for Handwriting 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 any trivial sentence about the environment, sports events, or popular media standard in other handwriting programs. Each workbook is full color.
