It's a fact that when children enjoy their lessons, learning is greatly enhanced and retention greatly increased. A Reason For Handwriting® provides a fun, meaningful approach to developing handwriting skills.
Every weekly lesson in A Reason For Handwriting® is built around one carefully-selected Scripture verse. Verses are chosen not only for proper letter combinations, but also inspirational content. And when children spend the week working on a specific verse, that Scripture becomes locked in their memories for a lifetime!
Even in an era when screens and electronic devices are prevalent, writing legibly and reading the handwriting of others remains a fundamental life skill. A Reason For Handwriting® helps students achieve this, while equipping them with essential knowledge of God’s Word.
A Reason For Handwriting® provides instruction in correct letter formation, and consistent daily practice to help students learn to write with ease. Their exclusive Border Sheets are suitable for display, ministry outreach, and gift-giving, providing an incentive for students to use their best penmanship.
A single, comprehensive Teacher Guidebook can be used for all levels of the curriculum.
Level K teaches basic manuscript letter formation, in short lessons appropriate for the strength and manual dexterity of beginning writers. Proper technique minimizes fatigue and paves the way for handwriting proficiency in later years.
Levels A-F, corresponding to 1st-6th grades, provide daily practice in manuscript (Levels A, B & T) or cursive (Levels T, C, D, E & F). These levels feature a weekly Scripture verse—over the course of 6 years, students will practice writing more than 200 different ones!—and because research shows that writing information by hand greatly increases retention, this daily handwriting practice also serves as an excellent Scripture memorization tool.
