Now that he's fifteen, he is needing to use cursive to sign his name--and has realized that he can't write well in cursive--and wants to learn! (Yay, self-motivated learning!) I was SO happy to learn about this program called CursiveLogic and to throw him right into the CursiveLogic Quick-Start Pack! This program is ideal for an older learner, it is not childish, and it really uses patterns and muscle memory to help your child learn to write in cursive very quickly! There is also another resource called The Art of Cursive which I'll tell you about in a bit.
|The webinar is very helpful to get|
That tricky "o" connection is addressed and practiced, with a nice connection with the "midline 'Dip' connection" explanation...
My son has been using this book, even doing the finger tracing exercises as well as the pencil-tracing exercises without complaint--especially after he saw the results and that learning to write neatly in cursive is actually not that difficult!
|My son's goal is to have a signature that doesn't look like a 5-year old|
signed his paper--look at the success he's experiencing so far! And
he's not even half-way through the program! He's definitely seeing results.
I'd like to mention another resource by CursiveLogic-- The Art of Cursive -- which is an adult coloring book which teaches cursive as well. This book goes over the proper shapes and formation of letters and extra practice is done in a coloring-book format, with the letters filling in the color shapes. My daughter who is already a bit more proficient in cursive writing has been using this book and it is helping to create muscle memory of properly-formed letters, plus she finds it fun to work on :)
This is a good way to tune your cursive in, get your hand used to the proper letter formation, and relax and have fun as well.
SO--I just want to reiterate that I really like this CursiveLogic program--my teen is greatly benefitting from it, it is quick to learn, and he is happy to be making such progress! Thank you CursiveLogic!
There's even a discount code, which is active through the end of March 2018--here's the info!
