Need advice about Handwriting Issue

Recommended Posts

I'm interested in teaching D'Nealian Handwriting aka "Modern Manuscript", but here's my quandry:


You know how ZanerBloser, A Reason for Handwriting, Horizons, etc. have the nice little books per grade level with lessons throughout.....well,

I can't find this for D'Nealian.


Does such exist?


Can you point me in that direction if it does?


Anyone have any opinions on how Modern Manuscript turned out for your kids?

I used Modern Manuscript with all 3 of my kids, it made the transition to cursive easy. Here are a few resources:


This is a series with a book for K -6, the books transition from print to cursive, the link is to Grade 2 but if you search you will see the whole series -



Here are a couple of others I have used:







For cursive there is the classically cursive series.


If you search for d'nealian at Rainbow Resource there are probably a few more.


Hope that helps.
