The Transitional work text is designed to facilitate a gradual shift from manuscript to cursive handwriting over the course of the school year. At the discretion of the instructor, students may review manuscript for as many as 29 weeks, or they may transition earlier in the year and focus on learning and practicing cursive letters for up to 36 weeks.
Contents of the Transitional student work text include:
- 10 practice lessons reviewing manuscript letter formation,
- 27 weekly lessons in manuscript,
- 45 practice lessons introducing cursive letter formation,
- 27 weekly lessons in cursive,
Lessons provide 10-15 minutes of daily practice.
On days 1 - 3 of weekly lessons, students write letters and words from the week's Scripture verse. On day 4, students trace over the entire verse as written in the work text. On the final day, students select a Border Sheet from the back of the book, and write the week's Scripture verse in their best handwriting, then use their creativity to color the design on their Border Sheet.
