About the A Reason for Writing 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." When done with care, these completed sheets are worth sharing with friends and family. (Note: your child will get to this feature in future grades, but it isn't a part of K.)
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.
