Intended for use with the Getty-Dubay Italic Handwriting Series workbooks A-G for kindergarten through 6th grade, each Blackline Master packet corresponds with the designated workbook A-G. They consist of 8 ½ x 11" copyright-free sheets containing two separate practice lessons per page. Each ½ page indicates the corresponding page in the workbook where the lesson is covered. For example, after teaching a particular letter or join, select the appropriate half page for student practice.
The Blackline Masters may be used as an introduction to the workbooks, as a review once the workbooks have been completed, or for extra practice and to reinforce and refine specific areas that may need a little more attention later on.
Because the pages are copyright-free, an instructor may make as many copies as needed from the masters, providing unlimited practice for students.
As the Blackline Masters are to be used in conjunction with the workbooks, the actual instruction is contained in the workbooks.
