I’m back today with another Timberdoodle review — this time for a Cursive Logic workbook on US Presidents & Citizens. My daughter has been working through this handwriting curriculum over the past month or so.
The book begins with a simple description of how each letter is formed in cursive, both as a capital and in lowercase. The letters are grouped according to where the beginning stroke originates: at the baseline or just under the topline.
After a few pages of practice on the basic strokes and on two- and three-letter joins, students progress to writing short quotes from famous Americans — one representing each of our 50 states.
I was grateful for the opportunity to review this curriculum, as students greatly benefit from learning to write cursive. Learning cursive was a huge help to my children who struggled with letter reversals. Once they began a word properly, they could keep on writing without having to pause and think which way each successive letter faced.
And this particular cursive curriculum packs so much into the practice. I love they way Cursive Logic integrates penmanship with US history and geography, as well.
Do you have a student who would benefit from Cursive Logic: US Presidents & Citizens? You can purchase an individual copy for them to use at home, but you should also know that this handwriting curriculum is included in Timberdoodle’s Fourth Grade Curriculum Kit!
While you’re on the Timberdoodle website, I’d encourage you to look around. We love everything we’ve ever ordered from this small family-owned company!
