Teaching cursive can be a daunting task. Most public schools don’t even try to teach children cursive anymore! Regardless, I still believe cursive is an important skill to for my children to master. Cursive allows for quicker writing and note taking, not to mention it is just more professional and even prettier when corresponding in writing.
So far, two of my children write in cursive- both girls…but now it’s time to teach my first son. The girls were motivated, wanting to have the beautiful handwriting that cursive allows. I showed them the new letters and connections at the beginning of each lesson and they did the rest, excited each day to fill a page with beautiful looping letters.
I feared my son would be difficult. His aim for all things school is get it done as quickly as possible. I figured the repetitive nature of our usual cursive curriculum would bring groans and less than his best effort.
Then I learned about CursiveLogic, and had the opportunity to receive a copy of the CursiveLogic Workbook for review. I was excited to try out CursiveLogic’s unique (and logical) way of teaching cursive which doesn’t require page after page of rewriting the same letter!
Other ways that CursiveLogic simplifies teaching cursive are using color coding and catch phrases for each letter shape, to aid students in their memory. Plus, since many letters are taught in one lesson, students can immediately begin writing real words!
Cursive the traditional way seems so intimidating, but the CursiveLogic way just makes sense. How does it make sense? CursiveLogic groups letters into four basic shapes, and all letters of that shape are taught in one lesson. See no pages full of one letter at a time!
