Handwriting

BJU Press’s handwriting product line guides students as they develop individualized handwriting that is natural, legible, and attractive. Beginning in K5 and Grade 1 with the formation of letters through patterns, students learn to write continuous-stroke letters, the foundation of both our precursive and cursive systems. In Grade 2, students develop a rhythm and flow that eases the transition to cursive writing. In each successive grade, students will continue to learn and reinforce natural, legible, and attractive handwriting. Activity pages with engaging themes and cross-curricular content give students opportunities to perfect their handwriting through supported practice, practice from memory, and creative writing. Grade 6 introduces artistic writing with calligraphy.
