Are you a fan of Classical Conversations? I recently was given the opportunity of reviewing the PreScripts Cursive Words and Drawing for 5-10 year olds. I must say that I love this cursive curriculum and so does my 6.5 year old. Surprisingly enough, she looked forward to going through the pages and learning to write in cursive like her big sister. Such as joy to see children light up and eager to learn.
What is PreScripts Cursive Words and Drawing? It basically introduces cursive to children. It starts out with letters, words, then eventually simple sentences. I love how they included a couple of the books of the Bible to focus on. In this case Proverbs and James was introduced along with drawing lessons just using basic every day shapes.
How much does PreScripts Cursive Words and Drawing cost? $12.99. This is definitely worth the price which in my opinion is not too shabby.
We used this curriculum 3-4 days a week and will continue to do so. I look forward to utilizing it with my youngest daughter when she is old enough to do the lessons.
I highly recommend this cursive curriculum by Classical Conversations. It's pretty self-exclamatory which is nice. If you make sure your child is using a pencil through the book, you can easily erase and have them practice more if needed.
What other PreScripts Cursive programs are available through Classical Conversations?
PreScripts Cursive Letters and Coloring (Ages 3-7)
PreScripts Cursive Sentences and Art Lessons (Ages 7-12)
PreScripts Cursive Passages and Illuminations (Ages 9-High School)
When Lyssa first started with the curriculum, I must say it took some patience for her the first page of letters. She is a little perfectionist and was disappointed every time it didn't look exactly like the sample letters. When we got over that hump, it was smooth sailing. Like I said at the beginning of this post, she just loves it now and feels so accomplished and proud of her work. She looks forward to writing in cursive at every chance she gets, especially when it comes to writing her name in cursive. It's so cute.
Have you ever used PreScripts Cursive from Classical Conversations? If so, which one? Did your child enjoy it and not become so frustrated with cursive writing? I think this is the ultimate goal off Classical Conversations as typically, cursive can be a major drag. Not with this program. We love it!
