The Basic version of the kit contains the teacher handbook, student text, slant position guides, two pencils.
The teacher manual provides a complete daily lesson plan outline, Student text provides color/rhythm movement models for finger tracing and Position Guides teach and correlate critical position skills for fluent cursive writing. This level guides a size reduction in preparation for the transition to using cursive in applied work. Fluent, rhythmic movement remains a consistent goal and is key to developing control for fluent legibility. You need not start a child with grade two readiness if you remember to master large size first before reducing the size
Our Basic Kit design includes grade specific items.
Included in our Complete Kit is the Animated Letter Cards USB Flash Drive, which serves all levels. By popular request, we created the Complete Kits to include the Flash Drive (because it is so much easier to order a kit than to select individual items from various product categories). We have created two versions to better meet your needs and improve convenience.
