Home School Kit – Basic Grades 5-8
The Basic version of the kit contains the teacher handbook, student text, cursive position guides, two pencils, no eraser.
The teacher handbook provides a daily lesson plan guiding movement practice for cursive letters and words. The student text provides movement models, visual models for goal setting and skill improvement pages for specific legibility subskills. Regular opportunity to improve control of rhythmic movement is the goal.
The student is challenged to move the pen or pencil in time to the chanted action words, color rhythm or count. This goal lets the teacher and student know what kind of movement is being practiced. When visually “drawing” rather than moving with smooth rhythm, the student will not be able to chant aloud.
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.
