Course Overview

In this complete cursive handwriting course students will be guided to learn how to write neat and beautiful cursive.

We will begin with an introduction, which will teach students the proper mechanics of sitting, holding a pencil, stabilizing your paper, and correct posture. Students will learn the four stars to super writing - slant, size, shape, and spacing. They will be introduced to the specific strokes that make up cursive handwriting. All of this will be explained in the videos. There are guided practice worksheets that accompany the video and worksheets for students to do independently for more practice.

After the introduction, we will move on to the lowercase letters. The letters are taught in a specific order so that it makes sense. Each lowercase letter is taught with a short video, a guided practice worksheet, and an independent worksheet. The guided practice worksheets also include an important vocabulary word that starts with the letter we are learning that day, along with a beautiful colored photo of the vocabulary word. Throughout the teaching of the lowercase letters there are three review lessons with six additional practice worksheets. These review worksheets also reinforce other important concepts like nouns, making lists, and idioms. Each of the 26 independent worksheets includes letters and words for the students to trace first and then try writing on their own.

Then we will move on to the capital letters. There are 26 videos and guided practice worksheets. Each capital letter is taught as a proper noun with a colored picture that goes along with the proper noun. Most are places around the world. Some examples are Africa, Peru, Rome, the Nile River, and Washington D.C. A short description of each place will be included in the video. There are 26 independent practice worksheets for additional reinforcement. They include letters and words for students to trace first and then try to write independently. Throughout the teaching of the capital letters, there are six review worksheets that that also help reinforce or introduce other learning concepts like writing invitations, facts and opinions, idioms, alphabetizing, and writing titles while they are practicing their cursive handwriting. 

There are two final reviews - a guided practice with a short video and an independent practice worksheet where the students can demonstrate all that they learned throughout the course.

This course packs a lot of learning in, but it is done in a simple, quick way with a variety of activities and interesting and colorful pictures and graphics so students will remain interested. Concepts are reviewed so students can learn with confidence.
