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.

Getting Started & Preschool Schedule

I noticed a lot of people on Facebook where asking about how to get started with homeschooling and what people do for their toddlers. In Texas, it’s very simple. You just send a letter or email to your child’s school letting them know you are withdrawing your child with the intent of homeschooling. Then begin homeschooling. Every state has different laws of what needs to be taught and what you need to do as far as testing. This website is very helpful for information by state. You’ll need to get a curriculum that you feel well be a good fit for your family. There are religious and secular (non-religious) curriculums. I have chosen Timberdoodle. They are a hands-on curriculum, offer both religious and non, you can customize your kits and they even have a scheduler to help you know what needs to get done each week.


Here is what we do for preschool. I did these myself; it’s not Timberdoodle.

Monday: books (she picks one and 1 about letters), game based on letters, 2 workbook pages (lette…
