Targeting Handwriting Victoria Year 6 Student Book focuses on developing students' own styles, while emphasising fluency and legibility.
The book includes:
- 'Mature' real-world applications, e.g. developing a signature and tips for note taking
- Teaching pages with two sets of copying lines, for reinforcement and extra practice
- A section on calligraphy.
The Targeting Handwriting Years 3-6 Student Books have been designed to make learning cursive handwriting as easy as possible for students. New skills are introduced sequentially, so that students build on skills one by one and aren't called on to use skills that haven't been introduced yet.
Wherever possible, students copy words underneath models, so that left-handers aren't disadvantaged, and practice of numerals and punctuation is integrated into the writing activities. The books also encourage and support student self-assessment.
