What you are going to LEARN

Uppercase and Lowercase

This course uses videos to systematically instruct students on the different strokes needed for each letter and how to form each lowercase and uppercase letter. Logic of English puts the natural rhythm of the strokes with each letter allowing students to become fluent in handwriting by developing muscle memory through both large and fine motor, multi-sensory practice.
This course is great for any young child who is just learning to form letters or for any older student who needs support for their current handwriting style or is learning a new handwriting style. Includes printable PDFs of core materials needed to effectively teach manuscript handwriting to your students, including practice worksheets providing various line sizes.

Why Teach Manuscript?

  • Most lowercase letters begin on the top line or midline to minimize the number of starting places
  • Letters are formed with minimal lifting of the pencil
  • Letters are slightly slanted
  • Letter formation is closely matched to our cursive style to facilitate ease in transition from one to the other

About
My interest in teaching reading and spelling began when my twin sons struggled to learn how to read. Through my research to help them, I realized that my previous training in how to teach reading was inadequate. As I learned and taught the phonograms and spelling rules, I understood the implications to all students learning to read and spell, and I wanted to make a difference.  I started the company, Logic of English®, wrote Uncovering the Logic of English, and began developing curriculum and presentations to share what I have learned with others.
