This is the fourth of a seven book series (K-6th grade) providing instruction in basic italic handwriting. We recommend Book D for third grade or advanced second grade.
This book begins with a thorough review of basic italic, then presents the cursive joins in sequence. After all the joins are learned the cursive capitals are shown. Writing practice includes first names, vowel sounds, consonant sounds, phonograms, prefixes, suffixes, homophones, homographs, ampersands, and punctuation. Sentence content includes poem forms such as couplet, haiku, acrostic, cinquian, limerick, formula poem, and tongue twisters. Cursive capital practice includes origins of our alphabet. Application form, letter writing, and envelope making are presented.
The books were designed so that a child may begin anywhere in the series, even though they have never before learned italic. Each book begins with a comprehensive review for that particular level. For example if a child is in the 4th grade, and can write at that grade level, they can begin with Book E without having to work through any of the previous books, adding to the versatility and cost-effectiveness of this series.
