Rod and Staff Penmanship
Penmanship for Christian Writing
This is a stand-alone handwriting course designed for grades 1 - 4. (In grade 1 the workbooks are also included in the phonics and reading course.) This course introduces the letters according to how the strokes are formed. Grade 2 reviews straight "manuscript" lettering and introduces cursive. Upper-grade students who need penmanship practice may choose to review the grade 4 course.
The letter forms are quite similar to those used by Pentime penmanship (grades 1 - 8), so students should be able to switch between curriculums without much difficulty.
