The past few weeks, I have been using the CursiveLogic Workbook with Little Bit. His progress has been astounding! If my older two would be self-motivated enough, they could use this method to teach themselves. Botanist Boy won't get off scot-free; he will be learning this when his school year starts back up in August.
CursiveLogic is "an intelligent new way to teach cursive." The story behind how this effective method of teaching cursive is really quite inspiring. You won't want to miss reading it.
Four basic shapes make up the entire alphabet. CursiveLogic teaches all of the similar letters in one lesson, greatly simplifying the learning process. Each lesson is divided in to four parts; I had Little Bit doing one part a day.
Rather than teaching letters individually, CursiveLogic teaches all of the letters that share a common shape in a connected string. This allows the letters to reinforce each other and means students are writing cursively from the very beginning.
CursiveLogic uses “verbal task analysis,” or saying an action verbally as it is performed manually, to aid the development of muscle memory and to give students a mnemonic they can return to over and over. This process is good for all sensory learners: visual, verbal, and kinesthetic.
Because CursiveLogic teaches a group of letters in a single lesson, students can write real words at the end of the first lesson. For some students, this immediate success is a huge motivator. It certainly has been for Little Bit.
