"A Walk in the Woods" Cursive Copywork

(0)
This copy book of beautiful, picturesque writing set amidst illustrations of natural beauty will delight kids from 4th grade through 12th. Full of word-picture scenes of the beautiful and interesting things a forest holds. Written by a homeschooling mother and daughter with the goal of giving students ample cursive practice of each letter in the alphabet. On its page each letter is repeated up to 42 times, but in sentences that are sensible yet charming enough kids will gladly do any page twice. Delightful text worth reading aloud as examples of alliteration, with breathtakingly beautiful coloring pages and a special section at the end of illustrated nature craft ideas to try. Here is a sampling of a sentence or 2 from over half of the delightful stories kids get to copy in this book: A Acorns scattered across the forest floor are destined to become great oak trees… B Birds bless the forest with their ballads, bringing the beautiful gift of song… C The chipmunk scampers away, scattering leaves, and cheats the hawk of an afternoon snack… D …They dine until satisfied. Then the deer detect danger. Suddenly, with a soft drum of hooves, they disappear into the woods… F A shaft of light filters onto the forest floor through the firs. I find a frilly fern and finger its feathery leaf… L Lacy leaves seem to laugh as they fall lightly to the forest floor… M At midnight, the mice are awake, meandering amid the many leaves and mosses… N Blind birdlings rest contentedly in a round nest in a branch high above the ground… O Old oak trees spread their strong boughs across the forest canopy, groping for light… P Picture-perfect pines among the peaks line the peaceful pathway… R The brush by the path rustles, and several rascally raccoons burst forth from amidst the branches… S In the sunlight glistens a sparkling forest stream… V Vivid violets quivering in the breeze thrive in their quiet place… W Wildflowers waving in the wind, whisper in the wilderness. Wisps of yellow petals break off and wander away in the wind… The professional handwriting font set used in our penmanship books is used by public schools across the U.S. This book is reproducible for all students living in the same home as the book’s purchaser.

"An Elegant Floral Alphabet" Cursive to Trace and Copy

(0)
We have made handwriting practice delightful by creating beautifully illustrated pages in color with gorgeous flowers and fancy letters on each page, one for each letter of the alphabet. When your daughter (or son—many boys like this book, too!) traces or copies each sentence about yet another girl name and flower, she is taking part in completing a work of art, not just doing copy work. That makes handwriting pure delight. We start by teaching the cursive letters with dotted lines to trace, introduced in order of difficulty (the easy ones first). Throughout the book, each exercise appears in dotted letters to trace as well as in solid letters with blank lines to copy on. We also give you beautiful coloring pages to go with more than half of the exercises. You can use these as reward pages, or simply as art to go with handwriting. Plus we give you Bible verse posters, extra copy-work pages in color to use as you choose, and a flower word search puzzle at the end. Each page has a word scramble or other word game to add to the fun. Your daughter will love this book! Sixty-three (63) usable pages. The professional handwriting font set used in our penmanship books is used by public schools across the U.S. This book is reproducible for all students living in the same home as the book’s owner.

"I Like Animals" Trace Print Penmanship A-Z

(0)
This beginning penmanship course is created to be your child’s very first introduction to hand printing, with letters introduced in order of difficulty, easiest letters first, upper and lower case, in trace printing. The child traces over each letter in order to learn writing the easy way. We start with super-easy fun mazes that develop the child’s hand coordination. Each maze contains the letter shapes included in the next set of letters. After practicing with letters, your child copies a list of mostly one-syllable animal names (ant, bee, cat, dog, etc.) and goes on to tracing sentences about each animal. Every page is delightfully illustrated and includes a picture of that animal to color on the facing page. To top off the fun format, we also have bees scattered through the pages for your child to find and count. A fantastic resource for new homeschooling moms! The professional handwriting font set used in our penmanship books is used by public schools across the U.S. This book is reproducible for all students living in the same home as the book’s owner. Quotes About This Product "A gentle and playful introduction to trace manuscript and penmanship. … The animal themed format is child-friendly and fun, and very non-threatening to the beginner writer."
