Teach Your Children Cursive With CursiveLogic – Review

CursiveLogic Review

One of the things that I have debated was whether or not to teach my daughter cursive. I know I myself print most of the time as I never liked cursive. I have decided that I do want my daughter to know how to read and write cursive. She can choose how she wants to write later on. We received the CursiveLogic Workbook by CursiveLogic for our review.

CursiveLogic has an amazing handwriting method as it relies on rote memorization and on the inherent structure of the cursive alphabet. There are two key features letters that are grouped by shape and letter strings. What I didn’t realize before we started, or should I say I guess I never paid attention when I learned many moons ago, is that there are four foundational shapes that underlie the lower case alphabet. In this program your not learning the letters alphabetically, instead your learning groups of shapes of an initial stroke, that teaches all of the similar letters. The letters are taught in a specific order that reinforces the pattern.

The letter strings capture the flow of the cursive alphabet by teaching by teaching all of the similar shaped letters in a connected string rather then each individual letter. This teaches kids to connect the letters right from the beginning allowing the student to internalize the flow of cursive before learning all the 26 letters.

Another really neat thing about this program is that it teaches visual and auditory cute to reinforce the shape patterns through the use of theme colors and verbal task analysis. Each shape or string has a color. Your student will learn a simple rhythmical chant that describes the path of the writing instrument as the letter and shapes are formed. The process of verbally describing a motor task while performing its aids the acquisition of new motor skills.

How We Used This:

When we received the workbook I noticed a little excitement from my daughter. At first she was hesitant because she really didn’t like cursive as she is more comfortable with printing. Once I showed her the pages she seemed more willing to take to this handwriting method. I had her work on a couple pages a day. I didn’t want to push her to much as I didn’t want her to lose interest or for it to be a battle.

I really love the fact that this workbook is spiral bound. I also like that teachers manual and student workbook are all in one and contains the step by step directions. The workbook also contains the student lessons, practice sheets, and dry erase surfaces. The lessons can be adopted from ages 7 and up.

I was really impressed and I felt that she was trying harder in her cursive. I felt she was more focused and her writing was improving. I think this way is a much easier way to teach the kids how to write cursive. I think I will be picking up another workbook to work with my son on this. The only reason I haven’t taught him yet is he has a hard enough time with the fine motor skills and writing.
