When you are ready to teach your kids to write in cursive, you will will want to consider using the CursiveLogic Workbook by CursiveLogic.
This is a unique and easy to implement approach for kids to learn how to master writing in cursive letters.
What we received:
96 page, hardback, spiral bound, full color workbook.
Contains both the teacher instructions, and the student practice pages.
Retails for $29.00
The first portion of each lesson teaches students to write each CursiveLogic letter string through a five-step process. After learning the string method, a student can begin writing connected letter groups and real words. After finishing four lessons, the student will be able to write the entire lowercase alphabet and to connect letters fluidly.
The student will learn how to form lowercase letters and capital letters. Students then practice cursive by tracing and then writing famous historical sayings.
The workbook contains three dry-erase surfaces that recap all of CursiveLogic’s exercises the student used to learn and practice the four CursiveLogic letter strings. Dry-erase pages enable students to practice and review again and again.
Additional helpful tips, and printable practice pages are available through the CursiveLogic newsletter.
How we used the CursiveLogic Workbook:
Each day, my son works in this notebook and loves it. He is mastering writing in cursive and I am so grateful for the opportunity to learn about this resource.
He is learning the CursiveLogic method, and loves working in the workbook. He is learning 4 different skill sets:
CursiveLogic groups the lowercase alphabet into four groups based on the shape of the initial stroke of the letters. The workbook teaches all of the similarly-shaped letters in the same lesson.
CursiveLogic teaches the similarl shaped letters in a connected flowing string. Letter strings teach students to connect letters, students gain an understanding of the flow of cursive handwriting.
CursiveLogic also uses visual and auditory cues to reinforce the shape patterns. My son loves this curriculum. He is an audio visual learner. He usually hates to work in workbooks or to write, but he is loving his workbook.
Each shape string has a color—orange ovals, lime loops, silver swings, and mauve mounds.
Verbal task analysis :
A simple, verbal saying that describes the path of the writing instrument as the letter shapes are formed.
He is surprising himself (and me too) that he likes this curriculum and is mastering cursive writing skills. I am really proud of him. He has been a boy who previously hated to sit still and write. But he really is enjoying mastering this skill and I don’t even have to ask him. He does it all on his own.
I would encourage everyone to put this workbook on their homeschool curriculum list.
