    Cursive Handwriting Workbook for Kids: Beginning Cursive
    Cursive Handwriting Workbook for Kids: Beginning Cursive helps children learn the basics of cursive writing in the most enjoyable and fun way!

    What makes this amazing workbook different from most other workbooks on beginning cursive, is that it provides “dot to dot”- illustrated exercises to help children understand how exactly to form each cursive letter and how to connect cursive letters.

    In part 1, students learn and practice the cursive alphabet. They have to draw the snail’s trail inside the letter with a marker, following numbered dots, a fun way to learn how exactly to form each letter. Afterward, they practice writing the letter by tracing inside it and copying it multiple times. In part 2, students learn how to connect lowercase and uppercase cursive letters, and, in part 3, they practice writing their first words in cursive.

    An ideal STARTING POINT for BEGINNERS!

    • Easily learn to write the cursive alphabet!
    • Learn how to connect letters and form words!
    • Unique Play & Learn system with “dot-to-dot”-illustrated exercises!
    • Appropriate for Grades 2-5!
    • Reproducible: Parents and teachers may reproduce worksheets for use at home or in class!
    Note: This workbook is for beginners (Level 1). It is the first book of our Cursive Handwriting Workbook Series and it is meant to be used in the context of adult-guided lessons. Its purpose is to help children learn the cursive alphabet as well as to understand how to connect cursive letters and form short words in cursive. Upon finishing this workbook, students will be ready to move on to more advanced workbooks that will help them practice writing words (Level 2) and sentences (Level 3) with a goal to build fluency.
