A Reason for Writing - Transition
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 2015 Third-Grade Curriculum Kit!
A Reason For Handwriting provides a fun, meaningful approach to developing effective handwriting skills. Each lesson is built around a Scripture verse chosen not only for proper letter combinations, but also inspirational content. “Border Sheets” encourage students to share God's Word with others.
A complete K - 6th curriculum, A Reason For Handwriting focuses on regular, daily practice, 10 to 15 minutes per day. The format is fun, flexible, and easy-to-use for both teacher and student. Detailed Teacher Guidebooks provide a wealth of enrichment ideas, and help meet both remedial and advanced student needs.
This book should replace either book B or C. There are extra exercises for both manuscript and cursive. If your second-grader is ready for cursive then you should use this book and follow it with book C. If your third-grader needs more work on manuscript before tackling cursive, use this book and then follow with book D. Scripture verses are taken from the Gospels and New Testament Epistles.
