The lesson goal is to build fine-motor skills through three fun craft exercises. Fine motor control will help with holding a writing tool and using it to write letters in a controlled manner for skilled penmanship. The first “#1a Pin Exercise” will be having the learner use a push-pin to create letters on paper. The second “#1b Yarn Exercise” will have the learner use yarn to create letters by glueing the yarn to the paper. The third “#1c Beads Exercise” lesson will have the learner glue beads to form letters on the paper. All 3 of these exercises will begin to establish more control by developing finger muscle control. Other fine motor skills to add to students' daily routine would include brushing teeth, measuring ingredients in spoons and cups, mixing ingredients in a bowl, and washing dishes.

Course Overview

C is for Cursive Handwriting Class is a systematic course created for beginning writers that have a knowledge of printed letters and early reading skills. The course will connect print handwriting to connecting letters to make cursive through advancing handwriters that will build on principles of establishing fine-motor control. Students will work through learning basic letter stems and strokes, learn lowercase letter families, numbers, punctuation symbols, and finally uppercase capital letters.

After letter memorization is established, the course will work through letter spacing to form words, word spacing in sentences, and work from large letters through wide-ruled letter sizes. The cursive learner will establish control of many sizes of lines through the lessons with tracing established letters and words to create muscle memory control.

The final advanced lessons will have the student writing cursive on wide-ruled lined paper and no line paper.

This course includes:

- 5 Sections

- 30 Video Lessons with step-by-step guidance for each letter, word, and sentence 

- 87 Practice Sheets with hand-written traceable letters, words, and steps.

- Over 450 traceable lowercase letters

- Over 400 traceable uppercase letters

- Over 110 traceable numbers and punctuation

- Over 800 traceable words

- 7 traceable sentences

- Test at the end of each section

Course Goals 

1. The student will be able to read and recognize cursive letters and words then be able to write cursive from memory. 

2. The second course goal is to be able to handwrite the size of wide-ruled ⅜” or 8mm paper. 

Target Audience

This course is primarily intended for students who are new to writing cursive or need a quick refresher.
