One of the things I think is important is teaching my children Cursive. I want my children to enjoy writing in either printing or cursive. My oldest struggles in writing because of fine motor skills and tremors. So I was a little reluctant at first to want to try cursive with him. He has never before learned how to write in cursive. We recently had the chance to review CursiveLogic. For this review we received the CursiveLogic Quick-Start Pack and The Art of Cursive.
If you have never heard of CursiveLogic before and you are introducing cursive for the first time, I highly suggest checking it out. CursiveLogic in my opinion is very effective in the way that it teaches cursive. Kids will learn how to write in cursive in as little as 10 weeks. The approach is based on two key features: cursive letters grouped by shape and cursive letter strings. Every learning style can learn how to do cursive with this Program.
I found that CursiveLogic is a very visual and hands on program. My son is a visual and hands on kid so I think this is why he has benefited so far from learning cursive. The workbook is set up to learn lower case letters first. There is a reasoning behind that but I can’t remember the reasoning. It breaks things up into color which I think helps him remember the different ways to write the letters. You will find different catch phrases as you are learning. The catch phrases also help you remember how to form a letter. I like the fact that there is muscle memory and gross motor skill involved with finger tracing and writing. I like the fact that he isn’t just writing letters he is also writing words.
Along with the workbook, I also had a chance to view the video about this program. The video is very helpful because it really explains the program in much more detail. It actually walks you through learning the program and how it is used. It also is set up to help you teach the program so it can be implanted successfully. Once you watch the video you will have a way better knowledge of how the program works. It is about 40 minutes long.
The Art of Cursive I have decided to save for when my son completes the program. It will give him more practice in his writing. I was going to use this with my daughter but decided to wait. Through out the book you have writing exercises. You will trace and you will write. Then it has a coloring page to go with it. The coloring page is unique as you will recognize what you have been learning all along when your coloring. The pictures are just beautiful! What better way to finish writing with coloring and relaxation.
How I used This:
I used this with my oldest son. If there was one thing I wanted to teach him, it was him being able to sign his name. The more I thought about it, the more I wanted to teach him cursive. When you are printing you constantly have to lift the pencil, with cursive you don’t lift the pencil as much. He has such issues with fine motor and tremors that writing is very difficult. His handwriting looks like a first grader. We have never done cursive before this program. So I can’t really show you a before and after picture. I can tell you that he really tries. He needs more practice staying in the lines but just for him to get the concept down I am extremely happy.
In the workbook it is labeled day 1, day 2 and so on. When you reach different parts the days start all over again. You get the concept there. I had him do a whole days work with the writing. Yes he did grumble. He didn’t grumble because he doesn’t like the program. He grumbles because he has a hard time with the tremors. Once we finish this program I am sure that he will have a total different outlook on learning cursive. I think he will find it is much easier. I don’t think I could have found a better program. For us it is so visual and hands on, it fits his learning style perfect.
