- Removes the need for teaching a pre-cursive letter formation. It introduces individual letters at Book A level, that have the identical shape and form of those used at later stages when joining letters and creating words
- Starts with a cursive font and builds to joins and words quickly.
- Uses a flowing cursive font that combines the best of traditional and contemporary fonts to create an easy-to-write and easy-on-the-eye writing style. Students find this an easy beginning.
- Focuses on the flow of letters and text and avoids a start-stop writing style which in turn leads to illegible writing in later years. A smooth flowing style is the result of using Handwriting Today.
- Makes it easy for young children to build their skills, as in the early stages all lower case letters share the same starting point
Handwriting Today is available from Book A to Book D
Book A - Letters are introduced in Book A where young writers practise word shapes and formations before moving to joins in the following year
Book B - Looks at creating joins and practising various letter combinations leading to the writing of words
Book C - Builds on joins, combining multiple joins into words, groups of words and sentences
Book D - Provides opportunity for children to practise their writing in context of every day usage and cross-curricular themes. Providing for letter and join revision as appropriate.
