Zaner-Bloser Handwriting is a complete handwriting program that can be taught in as little as 15 minutes a day! The Zaner-Bloser style teaches a cursive alphabet made up of four basic strokes: undercurve, downcurve, overcurve, and slant.

This fifth-grade cursive workbook focuses on manuscript maintenance and mastery of cursive. Colorful and engaging exercises include tracing and writing letters, joinings, words, sentences, and longer passages. Review and application exercises are included throughout. Shape, size, spacing, and slant are emphasized as the keys to legibility. The last unit focuses on real-life applications of cursive handwriting such as writing notes, writing an outline, writing a list, writing a poem, and more.

Directional features include:

  • Letter models with arrows to show stroke sequence
  • Stop-and-check signs to remind students to self-evaluate their letters
  • Space to practice writing directly beneath models (that both left-and right-handed students can easily see)
  • Joining Alert tip boxes

96 perforated pages indexed softcover. Non-reproducible; consumable workbook. Approximately 9 x 11. Grade 5.

This updated edition includes new authentic writing activities for applying handwriting skills to narrative, informative/explanatory, and opinion or argument writing tasks. In addition, Handwriting Tutor QR codes have been added; students can scan the QR codes with a mobile device to watch animated letter models and how-to videos.

Please note that this item is only available for purchase by Homeschools located in the USA and Canada.
