This workbook, Wacky Sentences Handwriting Workbook, is designed to inspire interest in cursive handwriting. This workbook focuses on writing complete sentences in cursive. Kids enjoy writing wacky sentences like, "Two rabbits slept on a fox's head," and, "Six elephants jumped over a giraffe." Exercises like these help to make learning fun, even at home. Four sections of this workbook help students develop their cursive writing skills at a variety of levels: Part 1 is the basic level. Students practice handwriting motions by tracing dotted sentences. Part 2 advances to help students begin to write on their own. In this section, students first trace a dotted sentence and then copy the sentence onto a new line. The three traditional horizontal lines are included as a guide - solid top and bottom lines plus a dashed middle line help students master the relative heights of the letters, and to write across the page in straight lines. Part 3 gives solid sentences instead of dotted sentences. At this stage, students practice their handwriting without first tracing the letters. Part 4 is the most advanced stage. The given sentences are now printed and students must now rewrite them in cursive. Beginners may wish to start out with a more basic book that offers practice with individual letters before advancing to complete sentences, such as the Letters, Words, and Silly Phrases Handwriting Workbook. May your students or children improve their handwriting skills and enjoy reading and writing these wacky sentences.
