Just wanted to you know that CurrClick has Penny Gardner’s Italics – Beautiful Handwriting for Children as their “Pick of the Week” on sale for $7 vice $10. This is “Italic handwriting instruction within a ‘Charlotte Mason’ framework (see Home Education, pp. 235-236). We’ve used this for grades 1-3 but it is for all ages – I’m learning italics along with the kids.
I do the same thing when ds9 works on penmanship so do I. It was harder than I thought.
Italics Beautiful Handwriting For Children works in well with Getty – Dubay Italics as well. We have been using G-D Italics. The e-book version would be wonderful for reproducing, even at it’s full $10 price tag.
Warmest wishes, RenellethehauserfamilyMember
Thanks, I passed on getting a handwriting for this year due to the prices of them. This one looks easy enough to use for all the kids.suzisueParticipant
Thanks for the information – I just picked up my copy from CurrClick, and I am looking forward to starting this with my children! In case anyone is interested – on Penny Gardner’s website http://www.pennygardner.com/italicsbk.html there are links to youtube instructional videos for the book.RebekahyParticipant
Wow, is this all inclusive and reproducible for multiple children???? It seems too good to be true – I love the idea of printing my own practice pages as opposed to buying lots of consumable workbooks for my FOUR kids. I was going to get the Getty Dubay workbooks – already have the used teacher’s manual – do I need those as well or will this stand alone? It looks very easy to teach – is it? I am not good at complicated programs with extensive teacher involvement or prep time.
I think it is stand alone and you can reproduce for each child and it is simple. We do use the G-D Italics books ourselves because they are cheap but i only have 2 children. I have both and they are simple to teach. I’m big on simplicity Rebekah, so I’m sure you would be happy with it!
Warmest wishes, Renelle
