Re: handwriting questions

Thank you MitchellFamily. I was able to find some more sample pages online at christianbook.com that helped me see more inside the Italics book. It looks really great. After HWT, I think it would be a much easier transition so that he doesn't get frustrated and always feel like handwriting is a chor...

Re: two programs or one for k and 2nd grader?

Thank you for your replies! I am leaning toward buying both Little Hands and Beyond's guide so I can work on the left side of the page of Little Hands with both and a few of the boxes from the right side of Beyond for my older son.

Re: two programs or one for k and 2nd grader?

I wanted to add a bit about my will be 2nd grader son. :lol: For reading and Math I feel like we are not up to "2nd grade level" yet. In fact I am trying to figure out if I totally bombed our first year of hs or not. :( We have been working through Explode the Code this year and he is only on book 1...
