My 9-year-old, Chloe, must have gotten ahead of me on the cursive writing, because before I started "formally" teaching her how, she began trying it on her own. She would occasionally ask me how to make capital "T" or "J." I wasn't prepared with a curriculum, but I had successfully used The Learning Page's
printouts before for her printing practice, so I decided to do it again with cursive.
Similar to my Dinosaur Preschool Book
, I printed out all of the pages I needed and slipped them individually into heavyweight sheet protectors. Now she can practice to her heart's content with dry-erase markers.
And if I notice that she's getting in a hurry in her math workbook and not writing her numbers neatly, I will have her write those over again.
Her little brother likes to use this to practice numbers, too. Or scribble.
The great part is that I can use this over and over with as many kids as I like!
