Review by sara
I do not know who was more excited for this book to release, me or my 2nd grader! She could certainly use some handwriting practice so I was happy to jump into this book. Upon first looking into the book I thought maybe this was below her writing level, but as I have learned in the past using MB: trust the process! It may seem to start off slow but as it progresses, this curriculum certainly does the necessary fine tuning and works on important things like stamina that might have been rushed through without proper handwriting techniques. My 2nd grader was able to move quickly through the beginning of the 1st quarter because she is older, but we really started to see fruits as she began to write more and understand proper writing through the lens of this book. We of course LOVED the animals facts weaved throughout, and my daughter will tell you her favorite thing about this curriculum is the PROJECTS! I know I can always count on MB to make Christ the center of any subject and we really appreciate all of the fun and creative ways they tie in each lesson.
