This is a collection of lessons taken from the 100-page book, Italics: Beautiful Handwriting for Children written by Penny Gardner. This reproducible booklet contains lessons to learn cursive italics. Besides being beautiful, a benefit of choosing italics over traditional printing is the close relation between the printed and the cursive forms. Other than serifs added to the beginning and/or end of the letter, all letters are identical except k. So learn basic italics first using Italic Handwriting Part 1. Then you are ready for this Part 2. Make copies as needed for your classroom with your purchase.
