This week’s Currclick Freebie is the Happy Scribe Copybooks:Pet Friends. A good way to get in some extra handwriting practice over the summer or perhaps appeal to a reluctant writer who loves animals.
From their site:
If you want your children to have beautiful handwriting, then they need to practice! However, so many handwriting copybooks offer boring, worn-out sayings that do not interest most children today! How about combining your children’s interests and studies into their handwriting drills to make them fun and exciting? Happy Scribe Copybooks are just the answer!
Each copybook has twenty sayings, presented in three different common handwriting fonts: Classic Block Printing, D’Nealian Italic and Cursive. We have based these exercises on twenty day blocks, representing four weeks of five days, for one month of exercises. There are basic alphabets and number pages for extra drill pages as well as a blank page to print for your own exercises, if you so please.
Each saying is printed once in a dark solid typeface for reference. The second example is using a dashed font to be traced over. Then there is a blank line for the student scribe to try reproducing the saying. After that, there is a light grayed saying to make sure they are on track. It’s a proven fact, that when presented with several blank lines to practice on, student’s work tends to degrade quickly. However, when there is another faint reminder quote line, they will see much more consistent results in the quality of their handwriting.
