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: Geoboards

A fun way to help kids get great hand-eye coordination isn’t with  Geoboards . I love that with these there are 4 boards included so you can use it with multiple students. The rubber bands are different colors and 2 different sizes. The pictures are fun, colorful and you get a bunch of them. My daughter really likes these. For some reason she thinks it’s so funny when the bands pop her. At first I just let her place the bands anywhere to get the idea of how to put them on. Then we started places them just on the white lines in the picture. She always wants to do more than one so I let her do as many pictures as she wants. I do wish there was a blanket picture so she could design her own things.
