Clear, legible handwriting is important for your students’ success in school and in their future careers. BJU Press Handwriting teaches children how to maintain consistent slant, readable spacing, and neatness as they write. Since the adjustment from "circle and stick" print to cursive is often difficult for students, BJU Press has developed a precursive style that guides the natural slant of your students’ writing and builds a foundation for forming cursive letters. Each handwriting book has a theme that provides interesting activities to do for practice. In the early grades, handwriting practice parallels the letters and sounds that your students are learning in their reading lessons.
