Whenever possible, we encourage parents and schools to begin handwriting instruction with cursive! (Read why here.)
Logic of English wanted a custom font that was developmentally appropriate for young students and helpful for students struggling with handwriting. We worked with David Occhino Design to create the School LOE™ font, which they released in 2013 in both manuscript and cursive. The Rhythm of Handwriting Student Book guides you through all the steps needed to help your student develop rhythmic, fluid, comfortable handwriting.
Cursive Program Highlights
- All lowercase letters begin on the baseline.
- Uppercase letters only connect to the next letter if they end on the baseline.
- The capital Q has been simplified to reflect the manuscript version.
- Letter formation is closely matched to the manuscript font to facilitate ease in transition from one to another.
The Rhythm of Handwriting Cursive Student Book can stand alone as a handwriting curriculum, but we recommend supplementing the workbook with one or more of our Handwriting Supplements with the program.
If you are teaching Foundations, Rhythm of Handwriting instruction is completely incorporated into the curriculum, so you do not need to buy the handwriting book separately.
Interested in purchasing the font?
The School Cursive LOE font is available for purchase from font designer David Occhino Design for both Microsoft and Mac. Use it to create your own handwriting activities or worksheets for additional practice!
The font comes with eleven different text styles, including versions versions with and without handwriting lines and directional arrows for students at varying levels of mastery. One of the most advanced cursive fonts on the market, it requires software that supports OpenType format, so do check the system requirements before purchasing.
