A Reason For Handwriting: Manuscript B--Student Worktext, Grade 2

The pages of this fun workbook feature manuscript handwriting based on scripture verses. Verses are chosen not only for the correct letter combinations, but also for inspirational content. The tree house is transposed onto the beginning of each line of the manuscript ruled pages and is used as a guide for students to learn the proper sizing and spacing of letters. 

After the introductory review lessons are complete, students begin a schedule of lessons that include daily writing practice of selected words in the "Scripture of the week." On Day 4 the student writes the complete verse and then on Day 5 they copies it onto a border sheet from the back of the workbook. 

Border sheets are outlined with wonderful black-line drawings and graphics that students can color to decorate their handwritten verse. They are wonderful "treats" for grandparents or shut-ins, aunts and uncles or friends to receive in the mail. Your young student will have an opportunity to spread the gospel and send a smile to someone they love.
