Third Grade Program
✓ ez Write’s continuous stroke formation helps make the transition to cursive “ez”
✓ Quick 10 minute lessons

In the ez Write Quick 10 Cursive Handwriting program, the letters are introduced in the familiar ez Write 8 Beginning Strokes groupings which the students have already learned. The program begins by teaching the Up the Steps Connector, followed by the Up the Steps Letters using strokes the students have already learned to “Muscle Memory.”
Most cursive writing today uses a method called “Print Writing” where printing and cursive are combined. ez Write is designed around this method. This eliminates much of the instruction time needed to teach the conventional, more stylized, uppercase letters which are difficult to read and seldom used.
