Daily Handwriting Practice, Contemporary Cursive is more than just a handwriting book; it is a learning tool that helps developing young minds practice basic skills in an interesting and unique way.
For example, on the topic “Simple Machines,” students learn about simple tools and the physics applied in using them. Students write letters, words, and sentences about a variety of content-area topics appropriate for the classroom.
Monday through Thursday, the weekly subjects for writing exercises range from famous inventors to famous quotations, amazing hunters to the water cycle. On Friday, a full-page exercise draws the topic to a close by reviewing what was learned earlier that week.
This book is a useful and effective teaching tool because each letter is introduced and practiced before students are asked to use it.
Curriculum topics addressed include:
months of the year
days of the week
prefixes and suffixes
Skills reinforced that help keep handwriting legible include:
correct letter formation
spacing between letters
spacing between words

What is the difference between contemporary and traditional cursive?
Asked by a Homeschooler on June 6th, 2016
Thank you for your question. The main difference is the slant of the letters; Traditional Cursive has more of a slant, whereas Contemporary Cursive is slightly more straight. The other difference is the capital letter Q; Contemporary Cursive looks like a 2, Traditional is more like the regular Q.
