Review: Italic Handwriting Book A

This is a great handwriting book for anyone not just kids. I don’t have the best handwriting and neither does my husband which is why I wanted a way to teach our daughter now penmanship. This book we got from Timberdoodle does exactly that. The way it’s set up is so they learn to write lowercase letters that are formed in similar ways. For example: h,m, n and r. The uppercase of each letter is on the backside of the lowercase letter page.


Downside is there is only one page devoted to each letter so there isn’t a bunch of practice before moving to the next letter. I would love if there was 2-3 pages for practicing each letter. What I do is erase after we do each age that way we can. Them multiple times so she gets lots of practice in before moving onto the next book in the Italic Handwriting series. I really like that they have arrows to show where to start the letters. I would recommend this book for teaching exceptional penmanship with basic writing and cursive (books C-G),

  1. I think handwriting is important, though it seems that in many schools it's not really a thing any more.

    1. I found out our local public schools no longer teach cursive! That’s just crazy. Just because we have a ton of technology doesn’t mean good old fashioned handwriting should be fazed our.

  2. I like that so many books are set up to teach letters that have similar shapes - makes it so much easier to teach writing.

Review: Djeco So Pop

Our daughter loves arts and crafts. Djeco So Pop is another amazing art project that she had a blast doing. I got it through Timberdoodle and it also comes with their PreK Curriculum Kit. The kit comes with 4 different projects and all the pieces you need to put them together. This particular kit came with little envelopes for each project that had sequence in them so I popped out each item for the projects and put them in the envelopes so everything would be ready go when do each one. Djeco also give you a glue stick so you can glue the pieces on the boards but I have found the glue they provide isn’t that great so instead we use hot glue.


What I really like about Djeco art kits is that they give you a little booklet that shows where to put each piece on the boards. It shows you through pictures so if your child doesn’t read yet it’s not a problem. Easy for a young kid to follow and great for the parent because you don’t have to read a lengthy instruction book. 

I’d definitely recomm…
