Re: How do you do handwriting without tears?
my children are the same ages. i use this. I DO NOT use the teachers book. there is really no need. I give them the book and they practice their handwriting. A page a day. We briefly talked about descending and tall letters, but it was a short lesson on the types of letters. Practice is the key. this book is great practice. my 6 year old has done the first two books and is on the third. i have all their handwriting books, but NONE of the leader guides.
