Handwriting Level K is for children in kindergarten and focuses on the correct print formation of letters and numbers. This course introduces 2–3 new letters at a time, going in alphabetical order, and introduces short words and sentences near the end. Text size is reduced halfway through the course as the child gains the fine motor skills for smaller print. 

The Good and the Beautiful handwriting courses incorporate drawing activities to make handwriting more enjoyable and increase fine motor skills. This workbook includes 100 sheets, which is 3–4 sheets per week for an average school year.
