About the A Reason for Writing Series
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. (Note: your child will get to this feature in future grades, but it isn't a part of K.)
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.

This full-color workbook focuses on one letter per lesson built around a Creation theme. This is the only workbook that does not include verses and border sheets.

We are secular homeschoolers but found this to be a useful book with not too much objectionable. I really liked the simplicity of letter tracing on one side, picture coloring on the other. Just the right amount of work for a new writer who tires easily.
Fantastic. Each page is cute visually...easy step by step page offers a realistic size letter to trace and practice with :)
I love how handwriting is broken down for little kids, and my daughter loves getting to color a different animal with each lesson!
We were using Spelling You See but it was a little advanced for my 6 year old so we switched to A Reason for Handwriting and I love it. He definitely needed more writing practice and I love that the letters are big and he gets to color.
We just love this book! It is great practice for the letters and has a picture to color with every page. I have used this now for two children with their Kindergarten curriculum and it has been an amazing tool!
