A Reason for Writing - B/2nd Grade
Handwriting, especially in this era of word processors, is a fairly low priority compared to other subjects. However, if you are going to make handwriting a part of your curriculum, here is something to think about. For over a dozen years we sold and used another handwriting program. The end result for us was less than stellar, even if the children's handwriting had duplicated what was pictured in the exercise books, as I would question the time spent on copying meaningless sentences. Because we know that handwriting is a learned motor skill requiring regular practice, doesn't it seem that if your child is going to labor over something with his mind and hands, he should also engage his heart? A Reason for Writing does all three.

Includes scripture border sheets
With each 10- to 15-minute daily lesson built around Bible verses, content is not only instructional, but also inspirational. Plus, at the end of each week your children will be given the opportunity to apply excellence to their work as they copy their verse-of-the-week onto their choice of "Scripture Border Sheets." Done with care, these completed sheets are worthy of sharing with friends and family.

Living Bible Paraphrase
A Reason for Writing uses a Living Bible paraphrase for its verses. For those dyed-in-the-wool KJV-only families, let me suggest that even this Scriptural rendition is better for your child to toil over than the trivial sentence about the environment common in other handwriting programs. Each workbook is full color.

Another outstanding component of Timberdoodle's 2014 Second-Grade Curriculum Kit!
Features
View a sample lesson

Verses are taken from the Gospels. Does NOT include transition or cursive lessons.

NOTE: The Transition Book will replace either book B or C. The Transition Book includes extra exercises for both manuscript and cursive. If your second-grader is ready for cursive then you should use The Transition Book and follow it with book C. If your third-grader needs more work on manuscript before tackling cursive, use The Transition Book and then follow with book D.
