The Good and the Beautiful Handwriting

November 27, 2018

This past school year (we run our school years a little differently than most), we did a few things from the curriculum “The Good and the Beautiful”. I feel like now that my girls have finished their handwriting books I can give a good review of them.

First and foremost, I want to say that I LOVE this company! I love how they have sought to simplify subjects and combine them in such a beautiful and solid way. Also the people who work for the company are truly genuine and have been a joy to talk with! I have talked to one person through email {Clarissa if you read this, you truly blessed my family so much and were such an encouragement me. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. } She then got me in touch with another homeschooling mama to help me when I kind of hit a road block with certain parts. I am so thankful for the two of them! I love the vision they have for the curriculum and how the combine things so well! To Jenny Philips, you truly are such an encouragement to so many and thank you for your sacrifices to make this curriculum. Thank you and your team for putting out such solid curriculum! In a world were we have to worry about everything our kids are exposed to, The Good and the Beautiful curriculum is a breathe of fresh air!

I could go on and on but let’s get to the main point of why you’re reading this post…      

My oldest daughter just finished level 5 of The Good and the Beautiful Handwriting and she seriously loved it! I had to limit her to just one a day because she wanted to go through the whole book! I thought it was great for practice and they loved being able to have a fun pictures to color or something to practice drawing. 

My younger daughter finished her as well and I had thought it was going to practice more cursive throughout hers but I misunderstood it and saw from my older daughters that the cursive writing really started in level 5 and that level 4 is just a small introduction to it. So after she finished she has been practicing more of her  cursive writing in A Reason for handwriting T book (once she finished her level 4 book I just transitioned her to that for extra practice as they have a ton of repetition in their books-which is good and bad ;)).

One of my favorite parts is this cursive handwriting chart. It is so nice to be able to flip to the front and them to see how to write the letters (or for me if I forget how to write a cursive Q or Z ;)). They also have a printed word chart too.

I am so thankful for us being able to do The Good and the Beautiful Handwriting book. And am looking forward to doing it next year for my girls and starting my son in the level 1 for kindergarten!
