Alaina already knew how to write in cursive, but her penmanship was a little sloppy. I chose to use this with her to help her become neater in her writing. She did one worksheet every day & practiced in her other school work by answering all her questions in cursive. It has really helped her with the legibility of her letters and her penmanship.
I agree with Memoria Press on starting cursive with children in first grade & I wish I would have known that when my oldest daughter was learning to write. She is left handed & no matter how many times I would show her the proper way to print letters she always started at the end of the letter and wrote toward her left hand. Her print letters looked correct but drew them from end to start. Once she started learning cursive and connecting her letters together she made them correctly. Even now as an adult if she is printing she will print most of her letters starting at the end and moving to the start of the letter.
