Italic Handwriting Series: Book B

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

Italic Handwriting: Book B introduces words and sentences, as well as lowercase and capital print script. One letter per page is featured, with short words to reinforce the letter in context. Tracing models, writing exercises, and related drawing activities are included on each page. This book is designed for beginning readers and writers in 1st grade.

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 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. The children were only familiar with italic handwriting.

This book is recommended for 1st Grade.
