In the Beginning is the first of two courses devoted to manuscript (printing) style handwriting. Students work on following oral directions through interspersed games and activities; penmanship motor skills are strengthened through tracing shapes and drawing lines, circling or crossing out objects, and finally moving on to writing both upper and lower-case letters. Designed to fit the attention span of a kindergartner, each lesson only takes about 15-20 minutes per topic.
This text uses a modified version of the Palmer method. Practice lines are 3/4" in height.
