Do you remember learning to write your first letters? We were so young! The concentration. The careful hand movements. Thank goodness it gets easier with practice!
The writing area in this handwriting practice book is so much better than when I was a child. This handwriting practice book's design is based on the work of Else Göttgens, a Dutch Waldorf Teacher. It has three pastel stripes: two green and one pink. The upper and lower green stripes are each about 0.24 inch (6mm) wide. The bottom of the pink stripe in between them is the base line.
The student has to work carefully to write the upper parts of letters into the upper green stripe and the lower parts into the lower green stripe while keeping their eye on the pink baseline.
In the staple-bound book, every page has the green and pink handwriting areas. There are 24 pages and each line is 6mm (6-6-6). The format is landscape. The book measures 11.69 x 8.27 inches (A4).
In the spiral-bound version, the pages are 120 gsm (31lb.) and the pastel lined pages alternate with blank pages. There is no onion skin. There are 24 pages and each line is 6mm (6-6-6). The format is landscape. The book measures 11.69 x 8.27 inches (A4).
Just like the Main Lesson Books, the Handwriting Practice Book has a cover of 280g sturdy card stock and 120g acid-free paper inside.
Recommended for Waldorf and homeschool classrooms.
