This digital download contains:
* An introduction to cursive, why we use it and why it is important
* 8 pages teaching the formation of each letter, in both upper and lower case cursive - taught through repetition.
* 13 pages of cursive words, illustrating how letters are connected. There is space to practice writing each word.
* 1 blank lined practice page, for students to practice on their own.
** Each letter is demonstrated with a detailed diagram on how it is properly formed. **
This is suitable to teach at almost any age, depending on if your curriculum still contains cursive writing or not (our local schools in Illinois no longer teach cursive!) I believe it used to start in 3rd grade, I teach 6/7 blended and just introduced it for the first time.
I found that this helps with 'messy' handwriting, even in printing - once a student learns cursive they take it a little slower and seem to improve their overall penmanship.
This 23 page packet took 1 1/2 weeks for us to complete and she is now writing cursive like a pro!
