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 2016 Second-Grade Curriculum Kit!
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.

Love At First Use March 3, 2015
Reviewer: MandyJHoffman  
We have been using this for almost a year now and this is the first year my son has not complained about handwriting! It is easy for the student to do independently and not boring or painful. The daily lessons are manageable while still being effective and each day being different helps keep it interesting, but not confusing. My older child uses their grade book and we have already purchased the appropriate grade levels for next year, too!

Wonderful Workbook January 17, 2015
Reviewer: Melissa W.  
We loved the concept of combining our son's writing practice with a purpose driven message to share at the end of each week. They have made for beautiful art he is proud to display and share and a great way to review bible verses and message.

Self-directed Handwriting Practice September 8, 2014
Reviewer: Liz M.  
We will use this workbook again with our other children. Self-directed work is always a win in my book! We gave away the colored bible verse sheets to friends or mailed them to family.

My son does not fuss September 3, 2014
Reviewer: Karen M.  
My son does not fuss about this writing program. He simply loves writing the memory verses/scripture and mailing to friends and family. The border pages included are very charming and pretty. We will continue to order this in years to come.

Awesome Product October 25, 2011
Reviewer: Nicki from IA United States  
I love this handwriting book! My son gets to start out in the week "easy" with a letter and a word and each day getting "harder" with more words and eventually the entire verse! We then use the pages in the back of the book to write the whole verse out again and color the page.  He just loves it! I am very happy with this handwriting book!
