What is all the excitement about the Catholic Heritage Handwriting series?
First, all levels are spiral bound at the top of the page, much like a stenographer’s notebook, but in standard 8-1/2 x 11 page size so there is plenty of room for penmanship practice. The advantage to the top spiral binding is that the page is equally comfortable for both ‘lefties’ and ‘righties,’ with no center or edge binding to interfere with arm and hand movement, which can impede good penmanship.
Second, Catholic Heritage Handwriting pages are single-sided. This eliminates the problem of pencils and erasers gripped in little fingers, pressing grooves, wrinkles, and holes in the paper. Better penmanship and neater papers mean little faces that beam with pride rather than frustration, and Teacher can remove the page from the book for proud display without losing the use of a page printed on the reverse side or pulling the book apart.
Catholic Heritage Handwriting, Level 1 is designed to dovetail neatly with the phonics and reading instruction in Little Stories for Little Folks. By using Catholic Heritage Handwriting, lessons learned in Little Stories for Little Folks are gently reinforced. In essence, the workbook serves a dual purpose: as penmanship practice, and also a phonics and reading workbook, two applications in one workbook!
Top spiral bound, single sided pages. 69 pgs, 36 weeks.
