A Reason for Handwriting series is a great way for children to practice their handwriting It works wonderfully for various learning styles using tactile (writing practice and art) audio (listening to the lessons which are very interesting) and visual (art) The books are easy to use I also like how God is incorporated into the lessons and scripture in the various books My older kids really enjoyed the creative outlet while learning These products are very worth the cost For anyone wanting to teach manuscript style writing I do not think there is a better workbook out there The only negative (in my opionion) is that it teaches manuscript and I decided to go with Getty-Dubay (italic) Even so I am going to use it with my other children and have them practice italic writing on their sheets Although I am teaching my children a different style of handwriting I prefer the well done lessons in A Reason for HandwritingThe Teacher's Guide is a must to make the most of this series Without it one might as well just teach handwriting on a plain piece of paper boring It is really most essential for the Level K workbook One teacher manual is used for all the books in the series and is very easy to read and simple to follow [Source: Rainbow Resource, January 7, 2004]
I tried to do this program without this book with my 1st child but that did not work very well. Thankfully, I bought it and have used it with my other children. [Source: Timberdoodle, 09/11/2020]
I love that I only have to buy one of these and it can go along with all my different grade levels. Each child has their workbook and I have my guide! [Source: Timberdoodle, 05/09/2020]
I was hesitant to purchase the teacher's handbook at first. I thought, "seriously, why would I need a teachers handbook for something as simple as handwriting." But then I thought, "Timberdoodle doesn't sell useless material" and I liked the fact that it would carry us through 6th grade. Well, I'm so glad I bought this book! It contains all kinds of teaching hints and ways to help your student "get it." It kinda feels like someone teaching me how to teach my daughter:) [Source: Timberdoodle, 08/08/2012]
This book is great if you want some guidance on teaching your children handwriting skills. There are simple lesson ideas to help your children along. I like that it includes all grade levels, so you don't have to buy a separate book for each grade. It's been helpful for us. Especially, getting my kindergartner get more excited about writing.
