Teaching handwriting can be a daunting task. There are plenty of curriculum options out there that teach from different methods. It is hard to weed through them and decide which is best for you and your child’s learning style. I have a solution that may put your mind at ease and get your little one on the right track to handwriting. Let me introduce you to Handwriting Practice: From the Bible! This is a brand new handwriting curriculum that is self paced and uses the Charlotte Mason method of learning.
The Bible Handwriting Practice series is a 3 book series, designed to teach traditional manuscript handwriting to young students, using the Bible as the source for the handwriting models.
Handwriting Practice: From the Bible! Book 1 teaches students to write letters and numbers and guides them in writing Biblical words and short passages of Scripture.
Frequently when the word Eden is used is literature, the author is making a Biblical allusion to the Garden of Eden. The same is true for many common Biblical terms.
The benefit of using some of these terms as handwriting models is that students learn that the word being studied has literary meaning.
Handwriting Practice: From the Bible! Book 2 reviews letter and number writing, and then teaches children to write short passages of Scripture that begin with that week’s letter of the alphabet.
Book 2 has review lessons followed by 26 passages of Scripture, each beginning with a different letter of the alphabet. When studying the 26 passages, students practice writing the longer words form the passage on days 1, 2, and 3. On day 4, students write the entire passage as well as the chapter and verse reference.
Handwriting Practice: From the Bible! Book 3 has the same format as book 2, but uses slightly longer passages as handwriting models. Also on day 4 students are guided to write the passages without the aid provided in book 2.
