A 12-week copy work pack full of 60-pages, includes quotes from leaders on positive affirmations. Students can meditate on a positive thought while practicing their cursive handwriting and through the process be encouraged each day to think positive about their life motivating them to give their best. Provided as a digital good for personal class use only so you can print additional practice sheets for your own students as needed.
Each sheet offers an example at the top, a spot to trace for practice in connecting each cursive letter and a spot below to write on their own referencing the practice and sample quote above.
When I looked at options for cursive practice for my sons, the books I found were basic and only offered random sentences. My feeling is that if you're going to spend the time practicing cursive, it might as well be something that teaches my sons some sort of wisdom. In this collection you’ll have ready to go quotes that include: biblical verses, our nation's Founding Fathers, successful business leaders, philosophers, politicians, judges, military generals, men of faith, and more — all with from various ethnic backgrounds, genders, and walks of life.
File comes as PDF, so you can choose to print all or only the pages you want your child to utilize. Simply send your file to any copy center and have bound. Easy peasy!
