Research now reports a clear connection between handwriting and language, memory, and critical thinking skills. A student who takes notes by hand performs better than students who take notes on laptops, increasing both understanding and recall. Moreover, writing letters, especially in cursive, as opposed to viewing them on a screen, is associated with more advanced brain function. If you have a child who struggles with learning cursive, CursiveLogic may be just what you need. Using a multi-sensory approach, four basic shapes, and just ten weeks, CursiveLogic will teach your child proper formation and connection for all letters. Rather than teaching each letter individually, CursiveLogic teaches concurrently all the letters that share a common shape. A single volume includes both teacher and student information.
CursiveLogic includes information about grip, body and hand placement, suggestions for left-handed students, and more.

”CursiveLogic is made to be a faster way to learn cursive because rather than teaching the alphabet letter by letter as in most cursive programs, CursiveLogic's method focuses on four basic letter shapes - oval, loop, swing and mound.”Read the Review
I would use this again and again. The lessons are not too long and organized very well. I don't worry about finishing a new lesson every week. If there is a struggle or it feels like too many pages for one day, we just put it aside and begin again the next day. Sometimes I just have my student do review with dry erase in the back of the book if I think he needs more practice. The method behind this just makes so much sense. I'm going to buy a 2nd copy for my 9th grader.
My son is not a fan of cursive so I am excited to try this book with him.
My 9 y/o is only about halfway through this book but his cursive is prettier than mine! It's fantastic!
I have spent some time recently researching handwriting curriculum, with my oldest ready to learn cursive and a few beginning printing. I like the Italic series for printing, but have been disappointed in their cursive (I used them in homeschool as a student myself, and ended up changing my own handwriting later to blend italic and classic cursive). This book caught my eye as a very clear, organized way to introduce cursive and provide lots of practice - the "Math U See" style of teaching, for penmanship! We're using a clear page protector and practicing with a dry-erase marker to be able to practice multiple times where needed as well.
We started practicing cursive on an erasable book last year. This year, we're using this book to continue that practice. My daughter is doing a great job, and this is a great resource to help her get the practice she needs!
