Sometimes we get so caught up in our curriculum that it is really nice to be able to take a break and read books that will inspire even more learning. I love it when my daughter is curious and I can do interest led learning. We recently had the chance to review Florida’s Treasure Coast ~ Here We Come! by By the Way Book Series. While reading this book it really inspired my daughter to want to learn more about things as well as look things up.
One of the things that I like to do with the kids is practice their penmanship, as my daughter still struggles on making bigger letters then she should. She has really been enjoying Patriotic Penmanship Grade 2 by Laurelwood Books.
Patriotic Penmanship Grade 2 contains 30 lessons. Each lesson equals one week’s worth of work. However, you can adjust it to your child’s capabilities. It also gives you great instructions such as making sure the pencil is sharped and gripped firmly, instructing a child to leave a “finger space” between words, and explaining the difference between a letter and a word. Also reminds us to give some leeway to the child’s creativity in handwriting.
