Penmanship

Penmanship curriculum is always discounted at Schoolhouse Publishing!

Penmanship generally comes in two different styles:  the traditional kind that many of us learned as students and italic.  Early in my homeschooling years I converted to italic handwriting.  Not only is it beautifully readable and elegant, but it's also easy to teach.  The lower case cursive italic letters look just like their capitals.  In traditional cursive, the lower case b, f, r, and s look nothing like their printed counterparts.  Many of the capital letters don't look like the printed ones (F,G,I,Q - just to name a few).  For many students, learning all these different letters is difficult, and they balk at cursive penmanship.  Italic handwriting eliminates most of these difficulties.  Italic handwriting is considered to be the penmanship of European kings.  Check out these easy-to-use italic penmanship programs!

This is the seventh of a seven book series (K-6th grade) providing instruction in italic handwriting. We recommend Book G for students in the sixth grade and beyond (although older students might prefer our more comprehensive book for adults "Write Now"). The final book in the series contains practice paragraphs acquainting the student with a brief history of the origins of our letters, from cave paintings to copperplate.
