CursiveLogic Quick-Start Pack and The Art of Cursive from CursiveLogic: A TOS Crew Review

Teaching cursive is traditionally done through tracing or copy worksheets and without much guidance for the teacher. Many times these courses proceed in alphabetical order or by clustering vowels and consonants. I have both completed these types of courses myself and gave them to my daughters. I had no idea there was any different way. Then I was sent CursiveLogic Quick-Start Pack and The Art of Cursive by CursiveLogic. I have to confess I was completely blown away by this program! I think so highly of it, this will be the only program I recommend for teaching cursive from now on.  Cursive Logic New Edition So what makes this program so special? Well, there are quite a few things. The first is the way in which the letter structures are taught. Below is an example of how letters are grouped The Orange Oval Letters are formed with the same unique beginning stroke pattern. Combining these together provides a continuity for learning like I’ve never seen. Other programs do teach the basic strokes, but I have not come across one that connect them together in a string and teaches them at the same time.  Cursive Logic Sample Page The combined use of multi-sensory tools including color, touch, auditory, and verbal devices aid in creating a firm memory for students. I’m a firm believer in using as many senses as possible when learning and especially for things which need fast recall. I use this same approach for other subjects, but it never occurred to me that the same could be applied to teaching cursive.  

 Grace enjoyed completing the pages assigned for each day. You may use this program at a faster or slower pace, but we followed the set structure and I found it to be quite good for her age at eight-years-old. She was neither overwhelmed, nor desiring to move at a faster rate. Because the letters start out larger, she felt more in control of her learning.   

 The other really awesome part of this program is the webinar! My college degree is in middle-grades education. I was taught how to teach math and reading. I was also required to complete a traditional cursive course, yet no one taught me how to teach. I love this resource as a mom and a teacher. My favorite homeschooling resources are those which teach me how to teach. The Art of Cursive Logic The other aspect of this program is a beautiful adult coloring book with an amazing little secret! The detailed patterns follow the same curves needed for learning cursive. This little gem is an incredible follow up to the course and a great refresher for adults and older students!  

I love that there are beautiful quotes included as a part of these pages for tracing. I found myself to be a bit out of practice using traditional cursive! As most people do I have come to have my own way of connecting and creating letters. While this is not surprising, I would like to have prettier handwriting. 

I do not personally color the entire page with these kinds of coloring books, but there is LOTS of space for those kids who like to fill it all! You can see from the close up above some of the cursive lettering curve patterns. When I completed this page I followed a traditional cursive style in those spaces and found it to be a smooth, quick way to fill in the spaces.

As I stated earlier I am thoroughly impressed by this program and the support it gives parents and teachers. No matter your age, this is an excellent way to learn or brush up on cursive, especially if your child’s initial training did not accomplish the desired results.  Check this coupon code out!

  1. You should! I wish I had this when my other daughters learned. I'm planning to buy the color books for them so they can brush up using this method. It's so good.
