There are so many benefits of learning to write in cursive! Cursive writing has been shown to have a positive influence on children’s spelling, their composition skills, motor skills, and word recall. It has also been shown to support the reading and writing skills of students with dyslexia. Catch on to Cursive is a 36-week, elementary-level course that includes two schedules, so younger and older students will both benefit from the material.

Your student will join Skeeter, Anna, and Susie on a fun writing and fishing adventure. Through full-color worksheets and exercises, your student will learn to recognize and create precise letters. This unique, whole-child approach is a fun and unforgettable way to learn cursive penmanship.

Within the course, your students will:

  • Earn badges for their work
  • Complete fun activities and projects to develop muscle control
  • Review each letter throughout the course
  • Learn attributes of Christ’s disciples as fishers of men
  • Grow spiritually
  • Experience the wonder of God’s creation

Every letter will be covered for three days. On the third day, there is a weigh-in section, and every few weeks, students will participate in a Fishing Derby or Gear Up activities where they review letters they have learned up to that point. This gives a fun way for built-in review and builds up their confidence. Watch for Weigh-In challenges throughout the course so they can complete the challenges.

No other handwriting curriculum like it!
Review by Rachel
Wow this has been fantastic for my daughter to have a steady paced curriculum practising cursive. She’s left handed and I had worried she wouldn’t be able to join yet but this isn’t just an ordinary copy handwriting workbook. I love the all the fine motor and gross motor exercises and the Bible included too. She loves doing it! I don’t have any tears over it!! Amazing. Thank you.
Lot of Interactive Options
Review by Lexie
I really was surprised to see how big this book is! Over 500 pages with information well beyond cursive. My son is loving the fishing aspect, and I have even learned information on fishing while teaching him cursive. It not only teaches proper writing technique, but this book contains practices for your hands to help strengthen them as well as an older kid section with more practice and activities if you desire to use them.
Already writing in cursive
Review by AJ
My son has always wanted to learn cursive. The local public schools didnt teach it and he missed it by 6 weeks when he transferred to private school. So when this came out we both looked at it. With him being much older I didnt know if he'd want to do it. He decided he wanted to try and I must say he's doing really well. He doesn't like the parts that he has to do things like grabbing yarn with tweezers, but I think for a younger kiddo it would be great!
I will say though, we bought this as a digital copy so he could start immediately before the physical was released, and I wish we would've waited... there's so much to print and it's just not as pretty in black and white. So I strongly suggest the physical copy :)
Hands on Handwriting!!!
Review by Alyssa
I didn't realize you could make learning cursive so fun and interactive! So far, we are loving this cursive curriculum! It's been hands on with many activities that get the kids moving. They are also learning about fishing which has been something they were interested in. All while including God's truth throughout the lessons. We all look forward to practicing our cursive! Thank you Masterbooks, this one is a hit!!
