Teaching Children Handwriting is not just another book about teaching block printing and cursive script. It is a reference for the whole language arts curriculum for the first three grades and beyond. It begins with the young child’s orientation in space and presents written language in the context of the development of human consciousness. With practical suggestions for activities, posture, choice of writing instruments, and much more, it also gives helpful insights into learning difficulties that can be seen through writing. Teaching Children Handwriting offers guidance and encouragement; it is a real treasure for all who love the written word.

successful smudge-free writing

Mark and Heather Stewart

Techniques and practice for left-handers, with guidelines for parents and teachers

$12.95

The third book of this series consolidates the process of developing good writing habits. Here, the writer applies what has been learned in Books 1 and 2 to writing with a pen. Ink is the real test of success for the left-handed writer! First, to form words which are accurate and legible, and then to avoid smudging them as the left hand follows the pen across the page.

Successful smudge-free writing can help overcome the frustration of so many left-handers. Note-taking, essay-writing, homework production and other normal handwriting uses can become satisfying events – no longer a source of disappointment.

The worksheets in Book 3 provide a wide variety of activities, all linked to handwriting in one way or another. From early Egyptian tablets, to Leonardo da Vinci’s curious mirror-writing, invitations, shopping lists and menu cards. Full-color illustrations once again help keep the interest of the left-handed student while the correct left hand habits are finally absorbed.

In Book 2, Pencil Pete and his gang take the left-handed child through a further series of essential exercises – all designed to give them the best possible start in learning to write.

This second book focuses on the flow of letters into complete word formation. Through extensive practice with patterns, different forms of letter-joining and in full word formation, the left hand writer should establish the fundamental good habits of hold, position and control which handwriting requires.

Form Drawing for Better Handwriting

Joen Gladich and Paula A. Sassi

$14.95

The “Write” Approach was conceived first as a self-help tool for adults, but quickly became an invaluable classroom/homeschool resource. Because this approach to improving handwriting clearly identifies not only common problems in handwriting, but also the form drawings that can be used to correct them, it’s value for the teacher is enormous.

Book 1 gives introductory instructions and 25 form drawing exercises for developing clear handwriting.

Grades One through Four

Laura Embrey-Stine and Ernst Schuberth

$11.95

This amazing little book is a thorough and insightful overview of the progress of form drawing through the first four grades. Within Waldorf Education these forms are seen not only as the precursors to good handwriting and eye/hand coordination in general, they are also known for their remarkable ability to help students integrate what are now known as left- and right-brain functions and, therefore, emerge into a more unified view of the world around them.

Both Embrey-Stine and Schuberth are to be congratulated (and thanked!) for their work. They have covered all the basic lessons for the first four grades, ways of presenting the forms to students, a myriad of forms to use (with lots of information on when to use them), associated the forms with the world around us, and then gone on to offer forms for each temperament and forms for the teacher. This is a book destined to become dog eared from enthusiastic use!
