Handwriting Workbook Level 1Details:
Handwriting Level 1 is for children in first grade and focuses on the correct print formation of letters and numbers. This course introduces 2–3 new letters at a time, going in the order of the most used letters, and introduces short words and sentences near the end. Text size is reduced halfway through the course as the child gains the motor skills for smaller print.
The Good and the Beautiful handwriting courses include images, artwork, poetry, Bible verses, and quotes that support high character, faith, nature, and creativity. Drawing activities are incorporated throughout the course 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.
