The Transitional work text is designed to facilitate a gradual shift from manuscript to cursive handwriting over the course of the school year. At your discretion, your child may review manuscript for as many as 29 weeks, or may transition earlier in the year and focus on learning and practicing cursive letters for up to 36 weeks.
- 10 practice lessons reviewing manuscript letter formation,
- 27 weekly lessons in manuscript,
- 45 practice lessons introducing cursive letter formation,
- 27 weekly lessons in cursive,
Lessons provide 10-15 minutes of daily practice.
On days 1 - 3 of weekly lessons, your child writes letters and words from the week's Scripture verse. On day 4, he traces over the entire verse as written in the work text. On the final day, he'll select a Border Sheet from the back of the book, and write the week's Scripture verse in his best handwriting, then use his creativity to color the design on the Border Sheet.

I like that you can have them practice both types of writing, and that the kids can just open and do it without me. Handwriting has improved with using cursive. [Source: Rainbow Resource, April 2, 2019]
My son has been asking to learn cursive and this workbook is a great place to start. There are enough lessons to take up a whole year, but we are only using the cursive part and it is working for us as we are also using level B for printing practice. [Source: Rainbow Resource, February 5, 2017]
I am very pleased with this workbook. Its a short amount each day so my kids don't get overwhelmed. I love how they can write the entire memory verse and color the outside edges is the design in the page so to make a gift for someone. [Source: Rainbow Resource, August 9, 2016]
