The following is a homeschool review of "In the Beginning Handwriting- Level K," published by Christian Liberty Press:
I have used this same book for all five of my children, who are now graduated, and are adults. It is a classic that works wonderfully.
The first few pages include a complete Alphabet chart, showing both upper and lower case letters with small arrows to show how to draw each one. The student can look back to this page often as he works through the book.
There are a total of 60 pages.
The student begins by doing a few pages of following instructions. This is important. If the child can follow directions, he will be a good student.
Next, the student has to recognize items that are the same and those that are different. He will also find missing items in simple black and white illustrations. These skills will help him find specific letters inside words, and also differentiate between similar letters such as "b" and "d."
The student does some tracing of lines and then of letters. There is a page for each letter of the alphabet.
The student might want to take a few days on each page. There is no rush in learning. Taking the time to do each page slowly and carefully should produce excellent results.
By the end of the book, the student will write numbers, and then simple sentences.
Overall it is an excellent workbook for students from a trusted Christian publisher.
This book can be found at the Christian Liberty Press site:

This post is the third in a series of reviews I am doing using Christian Liberty Press curriculum. I hope to do 2 reviews each month as I work with my grandson for Kindergarten. To start with the first post, please see the introduction:
