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 vertical manuscript alphabet that is made up of only four simple strokes and is similar to the letter forms most widely used in everyday print. This kit includes the student edition practice masters and teacher's edition.

The fifth-grade cursive workbook focuses on manuscript maintenance and mastery of cursive. Colorful and engaging exercises include tracing and writing letter 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 is using what you have learned and focuses on real-life applications of cursive handwriting, such as writing notes, writing an outline, writing a list, writing a poem, and more. Original writing exercises help apply handwriting skills to narrative, explanatory, and opinion-based writing tasks. This student workbook includes Handwriting Tutor QR codes; students can scan the QR codes with a mobile device to watch animated letter models and how-to videos.

Directional features include:

- Letter models with arrows to show stroke sequence
- Green starting dots that show students where initial strokes begin
- Stroke descriptions to guide letter formation at home
- 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)

The easy-to-use teacher's edition features three-step lessons that follow a simple instructional plan of model, practice, and evaluate. This guide includes:

- Clearly stated objectives that guide instruction
- Short, clear stroke descriptions that use academic language and give teachers the exact words to use when modeling
- Instructions to model using skywriting with large muscle movements that reinforce the motor patterns for forming strokes and letters
- References to Practice Masters (not included) that allow the teacher to match additional practice to students' needs
- Multiple opportunities to differentiate instruction, including ELL gross & fine motor development activities and multisensory activities for kinesthetic, auditory, and visual learners

The practice masters provide students with additional practice for every letter and skill and offer school-to-home activities/letters to reinforce correct letter formation at home. This set of practice masters also includes manipulative and multisensory learning activities, along with additional handwriting support such as reproducibles of the Zaner-Bloser alphabets, award certificates, handwriting basics, and handwriting paper.

This Homeschool Kit includes:

- Student Edition: 96 pages indexed softcover. Non-reproducible; consumable workbook. 9 x 11. Grade 5.
- Practice Masters
- Teacher Edition

This 2020 edition features updates to the basic strokes plus a new reading historical documents feature in the student workbook; QR codes have been added to the practice masters.
