The Handwriting without Tears Cursive Kickoff workbook is designed for second grade students (or those working at that level) who are ready to learn cursive. This workbook begins with a review of manuscript handwriting before providing an easy transition into lowercase cursive and uppercase cursive. 'Learn and Check' boxes help teachers and students check to make sure letters are written correctly, that words have the correct letter size/placement/closeness, and that sentences have the correct capitalization/word spacing/punctuation. Lesson review pages incorporate letter review with words and sentences as well as simple sentences. Activity pages provide interesting paragraphs or poems to copy. 102 pages, paperback. Grade 2.
