Review: Italic Handwriting Book B

Last year I got Italic Handwriting Book A and loved it. I decided to get it again this year so I emailed Timberdoodle to switch the handwriting curriculum out for Italic Handwriting Book B in our custom kit. What I like about Book B is that it still goes over the letters but also has a sentence to go with the word chosen for each letter. The way they teach handwriting is this book is so nice. I wish I was taught this way so I’d have pretty handwriting, too.


With Book A I was just erasing each time we finished so we could reuse the book as many times as needed. However, I got an awesome tip to use sheet protectors. Now, I place the book in the sheet protectors (I use the side open ones) and we use Expo markers and erase when done. My daughter loves these books. She gets so excited when she writes a letter in her own and it is written so nicely. She’s able to trace the words and then practice them on her own which I think is a great and another reason why I enjoy this curriculum so much.

  1. I love how she's holding the marker properly! That's sometimes hard for young children.

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’
