Poetry for the Hand (#C2): $35.00

15 simple poems encourage beautiful handwriting

This master set of 15 short, well-known poems for children offers additional practice for the student in cursive word formations, bridging the gap between completion of the cursive practice book and independent cursive writing with no model. In clear, Zaner-Bloser style cursive, the poems are arranged on ruled paper to allow the student to copy each line directly below the modeled line. There are 35 total master pages of handwriting practice. These classic poems by Lewis Carroll, Jack Prelutsky, Carl Sandburg, Robert Louis Stevenson and others, are engaging but not difficult for the young reader.
