Children master cursive handwriting for both uppercase and lowercase. Developed by an occupational therapist, CREATE CURSIVE is a Ride-the-Wave, ocean-themed handwriting instruction and practice workbook that brings cursive writing to life! Children master the kinesthetic “feel” for letter groups as they ride ocean waves. This fun program is for third grade and older, although it is suitable for younger students as well.

What makes Handwriting Help for Kids and CREATE CURSIVE unique?

1- CREATE CURSIVE is organized according to the different “Cursive Waves”.

The lower case “Letter Groups” include the following:

* Over & Back Waves (a c d g q o)

* Bump Waves (m n z)

* Flip waves (e l h k f b)

* Dip Waves (x v y)

* Rise and Fall Waves (i t u w)

* Tidal Waves (s r j p)

2- Children also learn and practice upper case cursive letters. These are presented in “Letter Groups” as well, according to similar letter formation.

What is the CREATE CURSIVE approach?

This resource uses visual, auditory, and kinesthetic strategies to teach letters.

First, letters are categorized into familiar “Letter Groups” according to similar formation. This allows children to master the “feel” of cursive letters and recreate their formation easily by using a familiar movement pattern.

Next, children learn tricks to help them link cursive letters which can often prove challenging. Lastly, writing paper provides kids with practice in mastering letter formation, letter size, letter spacing, and overall handwriting.
