Through careful design, so much good and beautiful learning takes place in the 120 parent-led lessons in the Level 3 Language Arts course. Lessons are engaging for children and academically robust while also optimized to reduce parent teaching time. In just a small amount of time each day, children learn foundational language arts subjects including phonics, reading, spelling, writing, grammar and punctuation, literature, art, poetry memorization and appreciation, and geography. All of this is taught in gentle, natural, and enjoyable ways for the child.
Highlights of this updated edition include:
  • A fun and effective spelling program that teaches spelling rules, spelling principles, spelling patterns, commonly misspelled, words, and more.
  • Our special scaffolding approach to writing meets children where they really are and makes writing achievable. The writing projects are fun and correlated with what the child is learning in art, literature, and geography. It is also our goal to build strong writers without making them melt down or push back with every writing assignment, as so many kids do at this age.
  • Optional videos are included in many lessons. You can use a video to replace the lesson if you don’t want to teach it or need a break. Or you can use the video to reinforce or extend the short lesson.

Handwriting Workbook Level 3

Sample Pages

8.5″x11″ black and white, spiral bound workbook


Read More

85% of the Handwriting Level 3 course focuses on teaching cursive with a unique colored dot system developed by Jenny Phillips. All the child has to do is follow the colored dots in order of the rainbow. This technique makes it easy for children to correctly learn cursive with little to no help from parents. About 15% of the course focuses on cementing correct print formation.

The images, artwork, and words used in this handwriting course are all designed to connect children to the good and the beautiful: family, faith, high moral character, and the wonders and beauty of nature and human life.

The course also exposes children to poetry, Bible verses, grammar rules, alphabetizing, and drawing.

This workbook includes 100 lessons, which is 3–4 lessons per week for a normal school year.

Handwriting 3 is side-bound.
