Hi,

I got the handwriting worktext K-3 in Walmart for 12.99. You might be able to see which pages are there if they have it.  ISBN 1-56189-382-X

My worktext is used.It is 2003 edition. It has an insert which shows all the letter formation in precursive and cursive way. Out of 352 pages 43 pages are missing, 1 torn out and 1.5 has writing.

I would like to exchange it for a medium size reading book for my daughter, who is 2 grader or another book or a Arithmetic 2 worktext . Please PM me with some ideas.

Book has 2 parts:

1- precursive practice
2- cursive practice

Page 10-113 are letter writing practice

Each letter in every part has 4 pages to practice.

First page is letter formation
Second page is practice of one word at a time which starts with practiced letter.
Third page is practice writing of 2 words starting with practiced letter.
Fourth page is a sentence which has almost all words start with practiced letter.

Pages 114-180 are practice pages for practicing writing of different groups of words.

Page 182-352 cursive letter practice

In my opinion the book still have lots of practice for all letters and you could substitute absent practice pages by coping letters or words on handwriting paper and letting a child to copy that. I know that if I used just this book for my child even with missing pages, he could learn to write properly. I hope this information is helpful:))

Missing pages :

11-16-letter B(only fourth page is present for this letter) ,
19-20 - second and third page for letter C is absent
43-44 -second and third page for letter I is absent
65(sentence which has lots of words beginning with letter N)
66-practice page showing how to write practice O;
119-120 - some kind of group word practice
157-158 - some kind of group word practice
169-170 -some kind of group word practice
173-174 - 2 pages of comparison adjectives words to practice
181-182 - last page in precursive section and cursive letter formation for A
211-212 - second and third page for letter H is missing
223-224 - second and third page for letter K is missing
233-234 - fourth page for letter M and first page for letter N is missing
285-288 - number word practice in cursive
291-296 - some kind of group word practice
309-310 - school words + school tools words pages are missing
317-318 - neighborhood practice page is missing
321-324 - some kind of group word practice
327-328 - 2 pages of comparison adjectives words to practice

page 231-234 torn out, but not used.

page 23 used and p.258 have little bit of writing.

Aloha,
Anna

Hi Anna,

 

If you're interested in this sort of thing, you should look into becoming a boxer. That's the only way to swap books for books at PBS. =)
