Students who take notes in cursive have better recall

The teachers enjoy the organization of the workbooks. The letters are organized in sections based on the shape of the initial strokes. For the lowercase, Section 1: Swoop Up, Slide Down teaches ‘i,’ ‘t,’ ‘u,’ and ‘w.’ For the uppercase, Section 1: Curve Back describes ‘C,’ ‘E,’ ‘A,’ and ‘O.’

Additional content: Vocabulary Connection, Writing Topics and Drawing Expression. When students describe their lives on paper, it becomes more meaningful.
