Handwriting Today is a comprehensive cursive handwriting programme. It removes the need for teaching a pre cursive letter formation, as 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. It starts with a cursive font and builds to joins and words quickly. It 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. Pupils find this an easy beginning. It 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. It 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 practice word shapes and formations before moving to joins in the following year; Book B: looks at creating joins and practicing various letter combinations leading to the writing of words; Book C: builds on joins, combining multiple joins into words, groups of words and sentences; and, Book D: provides opportunities for children to practice their writing in the context of every day usage and cross-curricular themes, providing for letter and join revision as appropriate.
