A Reason for Handwriting Level D Student Worktext includes 32 weekly lessons, which each provide 10-15 minutes of daily practice. On days 1 - 3, your child will write letters and words from the week's Scripture verse. On day 4, he'll transcribe the entire verse on a sheet of practice paper. On the final day, he can select a Border Sheet from the back of the book, and write the week's Scripture verse in his best cursive handwriting, then use his creativity to color the design on the Border Sheet.
Note: The weekly verse in A Reason For Handwriting Level D corresponds with the same week's theme verse in A Reason For Spelling Level D, thus reinforcing the Scripture content of each lesson.

Handwriting Level D Student Worktext
A simple approach to keeping fluency of cursive with your childs writing. My child's penmanship is absolutely beautiful and I love watching him take the time to create each letter in its unique fashion. We will continue to use A Reason for Handwriting until we complete the series of books. [Source: Rainbow Resource, October 23, 2015]

We are using the Reason for Handwriting Level D workbook for my 3rd grader this year. We chose Level D since she already had done one year of cursive writing. At first I was a little unsure about her ability to write on such small lines (1 cm from top to bottom) but after a few lessons she transitioned quite painlessly to the smaller writing. The layout of these workbooks is very straightforward and easy for children to follow. Each week's work is divided into small segments: Day One, Day Two, Day Three or Day Four. On the fifth day the student is allowed to pick an attractive border sheet from the back of the book on which to write the full memory verse in cursive. They can then color this and share it with someone. I thought this was such a great idea; the students practice their best handwriting and share wonderful messages from the Bible at the same time. This gives students a real motivation for putting forth their best effort. We did not use the teacher's manual for this program; we were rather busy already and knew we wouldn't have time for the extra activities. Besides my daughter just needed an uncomplicated way to practice her handwriting on a daily basis and this workbook fit our needs quite nicely. She rarely complains about doing her handwriting; the daily work is not time consuming at all and it has really helped her self-confidence with her penmanship. Since we just use the workbook the only teacher preparation required is providing the pencils and the workbook. Occasionally she needs me to show her how to make a particularly tricky stroke but most of it she is able to do independently. This book is great for visual learners; there is a colorful picture and a discussion question to complement each week's memory verse. These workbooks are a good value; for [XX] you get a full school year's worth of penmanship practice memory verses and opportunities for sharing compiled into one handy book.

This is better than the handwriting my family used before because it is more than just letters and random words. They are learning scripture and principles that I hope will last a lifetime. We have shared some of our border pages with others for encouragement. My children are learning the value of sharing God's word with others while practicing their writing skills. They enjoy coloring the pages too! [Source: Christian Book, October 7, 2013]
