CursiveLogic Review

Cursive Logic Student Workbook

Today we are pleased to bring you our review of the  CursiveLogic Quick-Start Pack and The Art of Cursive by CursiveLogic.  CursiveLogic is a fast and efficient way to learn cursive handwriting.  The lessons in the student workbook can be used by children teaching cursive letters in a very methodical way ( you will need a separate student workbook for each student who is going to be learning. ) while The Art of Cursive can be used for those who have completed the course or for adults to color, relax and destress while using what is learned from CursiveLogic.  The following video shares a bit about why this was developed and about how it works.

 Our Review

We were given the CursiveLogic Quick-Start Pack which contains the seminar for showing you how to use the program to teach your children or others, so that they can learn cursive fairly quickly.  After viewing the seminar, I decided that I would give daughter Faith a chance to try using this.  The student handbook shows the children in picture about posture, correct hand position and the proper ways to form the letters using 4 strokes similar in all of the letters of the lower case alphabet.  There are also lessons teaching uppercase alphabet. It is a very through study in cursive handwriting.  This could be easily adapted for younger children, but my own are ages 10, 14 and 15.  I allowed each of my children to try a page or two in the Cursive Logic Student Workbook. After this Faith worked through numerous lessons for our review. My 10 year old son was not into doing more, I guess that is his age and that he thinks cursive is too fancy for him to be doing.  My 14 year old daughter liked it but said she would let Faith be the one to use this, since she has many more years of schooling to do herself and Faith would be done with school sooner.  Being use to manuscript Faith found it very time consuming and difficult for her, that isn’t to say that it is hard to do in general, just hard for her. I hope through using this it will give her more motivation to keep writing and with practice she will see how beautiful cursive handwriting is.

This program could also be used to teach adults.

I decided to show some examples of the lesson and of her cursive work, so that you can get a better idea of how things progress in the workbook.

 

For months my children have commented on how nice my handwriting is and this came from many lessons as a child that took many more hours and so much more time then the way they are learning to write cursive.  Truth be told I did not realize how rusty I had become in my handwriting until I tried doing this program. I think it is good for all of us to learn from as a family. Given how so many schools are not teaching this art and discipline today, I have decided to teach my own so that one day they can sign their names nicely, write letters that are legible.  I also want them to learn History and be able to read documents that were years ago written with the finest cursive handwriting. After all if it was taught to men and women alike years ago, I feel it should be taught today.

We are looking forward to completing the course as we will be having some fun using The Art of Cursive, to learn how we can incorporate cursive into some beautiful artwork. We will be using it to make some artwork to hang up around our home.  It contains some lovely pictures to color and use the cursive handwriting  learned in the program and also very wise quotes and sayings to inspire us daily. We will be using some colorful gel pens we were given and I think this will make studying this as an Art form even more fun !

We really enjoyed this and I hope that you will consider using this with your children or even for yourself.

Do you want to make your own handwriting worsheets, using bible verses or poems you love ? Are you kids tired of traditional workbooks for penmanship ? Well this may be the answer for your home or home-school !

 

My Review

I absolutely loved this program and will continue to use it for years to come. The kids really  grew tired of using a workbook and the same thing all the time to learn penmanship.  Repetitive practice gets old.  Well this software program is wonderful.  I can use anything we are studying to make the worsheets. I have used Bible verses, Poems, Things from history and it is so much more customizable to what we are doing instead of some canned penmanship book.  I really love this software, its has the benefit of using graphics to  enhance your worksheets as well, making them extra special for your students.  I highly recommend this to all my homeschool Mamma friends !

Logic of English ~ Foundations Level A ~ Review

Logic of English Review We were really happy to be able to review Logic of English  ~ Foundations  Level A ($71.00)We received  Foundations Level A Teachers Manual ($38.00), Level A Student Workbook ($18.00), Doodling Dragons : an ABC Book of Sounds ($15.00). We also received Rhythm of Handwriting Manuscript -Complete Set  ($85.00) that included:  A student whiteboard ($9.00), Basic Phonogram Flash Cards ($18.00), Phonogram Game Cards Red and Blue ($10.00 each set), Rhythm of Handwriting Tactile Cards ($28.00) and Rhythm of Handwriting Quick Reference Chart ($10.00)  .  A very complete set for learning for ages 4 to 7 year olds!Logic of English Review

We were so excited to receive this Curriculum to use with Daniel 6 years old. He so wants to learn to read. We are a family who loves phonics based programs and see them as a necessity in learning to read. We were also excited to see that Foundations A teaches the children proper strokes for handwriting , so that they can easily learn to form letters properly.  One thing that really caught Daniels eye is the Dragons ! Being a boy Dragons really appeal to him, so this was a very good thing. The colors used in the graphics also are very appealing.  I feel that Logic of English really put some great thought into how this curriculum was made and developed, not only for the child but for the teacher as well.  It is very through in each area to be taught in the teachers manual. This really helped me to be able to teach this to Daniel and not forget a single thing needing to be taught.

The Teachers Lessons give you the Objectives in Handwriting, Phonemic Awareness and It also includes the Common Core Standard met by this curriculum.  I have full assurance that I am meeting the standards set forth but in no way compromising my own standards. It also lists Optional materials that can be used in each lesson. ie. Books, Legos, toys and other things.

In Phonemic Awareness they teach about feeling the sounds made by touching the throat as they are said, it gives speech tips and Multi-sensory fun.  We are using as many ways to teach mentioned so that Daniel truly comes to a right understanding. The Rhythm of Handwriting is wonderful as well. We have chart to go by. A whiteboard to use. Tactile Cards to feel the way its made and when you combine this with all the fun and games, as well as flashcards it truly is a wonderful and complete program to use with the children.  Daniel just loves this so much and so do I , it gives me one on one time with him daily. He is already learning a lot of words used all the time and many new words he knows but didn’t know how to write on his own.  My 12 year old exclaimed one night ” Mom, Daniel knows how to read ! “.   It is exciting for the two older girls to see Daniel making progress in writing and reading.  Daniel is excited to be able to do many things on his own now.

This is really the most complete program I have seen that teaches reading and writing in ways that I had not thought of but yet desired for each of my children to learn.  I am so happy with Logic of English and cannot wait to try other products developed by them.

Our Daily Lessons: First we cover phonemic  awareness, it does not take us long each morning to do this. We workin listening to the sounds, I have Daniel watch me as I say the sound. I make sure he knows what sounds are unvoiced and what ones are voiced. I follow the teacher tips given in my teacher manual. I love the booklist given also as this saves me time and I can get those books ahead for our reading time. We are able to work on Vocabulary also by following the tips in the teachers manual.  We then move on to Handwriting. Again I follow the teacher tips and use the items mentioned for each lesson.  Its fun for Daniel there are many games and fun ideas to use.  We love reading through Doodling Dragons an ABC Book of Sounds. It is bright and colorful and very eye catching.

I can’t believe everything we have covered in such a short period of time !

If your looking for a really complete and fun way to each your younger children you would really enjoy this program.  After we complete Foundations A, I think we shall move onto Foundations B and keep on going ! That is how impressed I am with Logic of English !  They have thought of everything, nothing was left out of this curriculum.  So even if you don’t think you can teach your child to read and write, you can do it with this program !
