The handwriting level for this grade has the children writing upper and lower case letters without the “middle line”. It’s quite an advancement! The handwriting practices have the children writing out famous quotes from history as well as short stories of important historical and geographical places in America. Numbers are included in this level by way of having the children write out dates of the stories. An added bonus with these handwriting books are the beautiful full-color illustrations of American landmarks.
