CursiveLogic A New Way to Teach Cursive



Hi Neighbors!

Here is a review of a homeschooling curriculum that will assist you in teaching your child to write in cursive.  We received the CursiveLogic Workbook from, CursiveLogic of course!



Before I begin the review I want to share a little bit about how I feel regarding handwriting.  We have a friend who teaches at a public school in Florida and she told me that they are no longer requiring students to learn cursive.  Now, I am a little amazed by that.  I mean, how are they going to sign important documents, checks or even read many of our country's historical documents?  All of my children have been required to learn cursive.  I realize with all our electronics and such we have made cursive writing less of a necessity, but I still feel it is an important skill to learn.  So, if you feel the same way, continue reading about CursiveLogic.



The CursiveLogic Workbook is an extremely organized method of learning.  Instead of learning the letters in alphabetical order, the letters are divided into four basic groups that have similar shapes.  Thus your child will learn a group of letters instead of learning individual letters one at a time.  They are broken into a string of letters that are similar.  To help your student learn each group or string is color coded.  Having the color coding is another way to help the student remember the shape of the letter.  Another benefit to learning like this is, your child will be able to write a word at the end of a lesson, because they are learning a group of letters, rather than one letter at a time.



One of the very first things CursiveLogic will teach is the proper way to hold your pencil or pen.  Also included in the introduction section is the proper posture to use when writing for both left-handed and right-handed writers.  Even I remember learning that in school, although I am not sure it is taught any longer.  Once your child has finished the preparation for writing in cursive, they will be able to jump right in to Lesson 1 where they will learn about the Oval Orange Letters.  Yes, that does give away a hint on the instruction, but there is so much more included in CursiveLogic.

As I stated above, this is a very logical and methodical way of learning to write in cursive.  Not only do I recommend you include cursive in your curriculum, I recommend CursiveLogic.  It is by far one of the easiest methods I have seen to learn cursive.  Take some time to visit their website and take a look around.  You can download some sample pages to get a better idea of how CursiveLogic works.

I think it's absolutely crazy that children are no longer being taught handwriting. If my son was still in school and not learning it, I would definitely use this.

This is such a good idea. I definitely think children should learn cursive. This is a great tool if kids aren't being taught it.
