    I don’t mean in general, but rather, in order to do the CM curriculum. My husband and I do not wish to teach our children cursive handwriting and I know a lot of curriculums include it. As well as handwriting books. So my question is, would it be possible for my children to do the charlotte mason curriculum – including handwriting, without having to learn cursive? Is there a regular print option?

    Yes, you can successfully use SCM’s curriculum without teaching cursive. We have one book that teaches cursive writing, Print to Cursive Proverbs. Other than that one book, which you can skip, Delightful Handwriting and A Child’s Copybook Readers are only available in manuscript Hymns in Prose Copybooks are available in your choice of cursive or manuscript.

    When your child is old enough and ready for written narrations, transcription, and dictation, it is your choice to have them complete those assignments in cursive, manuscript, or have them type them.
