This is the third of seven books providing instruction in basic italic handwriting. Book C is designed for the early reader and is especially recommended for grade two, however it is also suitable for the latter part of grade one or early grade three.
Each page is designed for the student to trace the models, write letters, words, and/or sentences in the spaces provided. On some pages, the writer completes a given line by writing a "best" letter in the empty box.
In addition to a review of the basic italic, an introduction to cursive italic is presented to assist the student in learning the fundamentals of the cursive hand.
About Italic Handwriting:
We used to get many calls from moms asking about a handwriting program. For nearly 7 years of business, we did not carry a handwriting course for 2 reasons. The first is that we are fairly low-key about the need for a handwriting course. Being a mail-order business, we have seen handwriting of every description and realize good or bad handwriting is seemingly no hindrance to success in life. However, because we are a mail-order business, we undeniably appreciate good handwriting, and often comment amongst ourselves when the order form is particularly readable.
If we were to carry a handwriting course, it would have to do more than teach fine skills. It would have to result in something that was beautifully legible! Which brings us to the second reason why we have never carried a handwriting course. The course we are and have been using with our children was not available for resale when we originally asked. Sure, there were and are dozens of adequate handwriting courses available for resale. But in clear conscience we couldn't and wouldn't sell what we ourselves wont use. So when Portland State University changed their policies and contacted us about being dealers, we were only too happy to sign up! Italic Handwriting is:
Logical because the transition from printing to cursive is exceptionally smooth.
Easy to write as it conforms to natural hand movements.
Traditional cursive, written fast, is nearly illegible. However, in cursive italic handwriting, the letters are formed quickly and easily and with no loops to clutter. Even rapidly written cursive italic is easy to read. Handwriting, especially in this era of word processors, takes a fairly low priority compared to other subjects. However, if you are going to make handwriting a part of your curriculum, why not use the best? We've looked at a lot and think that as far as a lifetime skill, Italic Handwriting wins "hands down!" Each book has the basics of how to form each letter and then age-appropriate exercises which students do in the workbook. New students should start the program at grade level. The Instruction Manual is helpful for special problems or left handers, but otherwise is somewhat optional. Cursive writing transition occurs at the end of Book C .
