Handwriting Without Tears is highly recommended.

HWWT was good for one but not for the other so when I switched my son to Pictures in Cursive by Queenhomeschool he loved it. The art was beautiful and he asked to do his handwriting- wow!  Start with the primer and then move along= each book is approx 12 weeks worth if you do it every day.

Hope that helps

I love the BJU handwriting program, my daughter loves the worktexts. It has colorful pages. The 2 grade handwriting introduces children to cursive handwriting and then it goes up to 6th grade.

Thank you all!  We used HWOT for printing and loved it, I just don't like the way they teach cursive.  Pictures in Cursive is beautiful.  Too bad none are posted!

 

thanks everyone :)
