Italic Handwriting Series: Book A

This item is consumable. You will need one per student.

Italic Handwriting: Book A teaches the twenty-six lowercase and twenty-six capital letters, teaching one letter per page. Tracing models, writing exercises, and related drawing activities are included on each page. This book is designed for kindergarten students who are just beginning formal handwriting instruction.

Simple, step-by-step instruction makes this handwriting series a favorite of many homeschoolers. The italic aspect of this program eliminates the loops and awkward squiggles of “regular” cursive writing, while maintaining a clear, elegant appearance to the handwriting.

One word of warning! Be certain your child sees the difference between loopy cursive and italic cursive. One mother was disappointed that her children could not read a letter from their grandma, because it was written in loopy cursive. Her children were only familiar with italic handwriting.

This book is recommended for Kindergarten.
