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.
