- Most lowercase letters begin on the top line and midline to minimize the number of starting places. In many handwriting curriculums, letters begin in up to seven different places.
- Letters are formed with minimal lifting of the pencil. Lifting the pencil for strokes requires more fine motor articulation, as well as additional instruction about where to place the pencil to begin the next stroke.
- Letters are slightly slanted, which is the most natural position for handwriting.
- Letter formation is closely matched to our cursive style to facilitate ease in transition from one to another.
Our Handwriting Font
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™ font. Learn more on our fonts page.

The School™ Manuscript font is available for purchase from David Occhino Design.
The Rhythm of Handwriting Manuscript Student Book can stand alone as a handwriting curriculum. You may also find it helpful to use 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 handwriting materials separately.
