‘Tis finally finished! It’s our new cursive handwriting book, the Script-n-Scribe Letter Connector! This book is a “level 2” book for students transitioning from programs that introduce cursive letter formation (such as the Roller Coaster Writer) to other more advanced handwriting resources.
In cursive handwriting, an intermediate step is often needed for students as they move from learning individual letters (in introductory cursive programs) to other copywork books that jump to words and sentences. This program has been designed to provide a connection between the formation of single letters to the formation of words and sentences. It also provides a foundation for spelling and phonics instruction that complements a variety of spelling and phonics programs, including (but not limited to) Spell to Write and Read or All About Spelling and All About Reading.
The Letter Connector introduces the remaining basic multi-letter phonograms, provides practice with connecting letters into words and sentences, and allows students extra practice for tricky letter combinations that are sometimes difficult to master.
- Phonogram and cursive cards for 47 multi-letter phonograms (includes the remaining 44 basic phonograms plus 3 additional advanced phonograms)
- Multi-letter phonogram workbook practice pages
- Dictation quiz games
- Letter-linking through the alphabet: Starting with the letter a, students practice writing letters together until they are writing complete words and sentences.
- Capital letters practice.
- Practice with tricky cursive connections. Students practice connecting letters with difficult connections (such as o, b, and r) by writing silly sentences.
- Advanced vocabulary, which allows teachers to introduce students to dictionary skills.

Our Cursive Story Continued…
Several years ago after working in an introductory cursive program, our second son struggled with connecting the individual letters he had learned into words and sentences. At that time, I created a cursive handwriting workbook for us to use as a bridge between writing individual letters and writing words & sentences. That workbook not only equipped him to successfully write words and sentences, but it also became the bridge for our third son. To read more about how cursive helped our struggling writer, visit this post.
In writing The Letter Connector, we have revisited and rebuilt the original workbook to provide a thorough program that will assist students not only with writing words and sentences, but also with learning multi-letter phonograms and practicing the most difficult combinations of letters that they will encounter. After completing our Roller Coaster Writer and Letter Connector programs, students should be adequately prepared for any of our Script-n-Scribe Cursive Copywork books or any other handwriting curriculum on the market.
Note: Our children were very much involved in the creation of the entire Script-n-Scribe handwriting program. They are the reason that I searched for solutions when everything else seemed a struggle. To this day, they use, review, and provide helpful feedback for all the materials we produce. My prayer is that it is also a blessing to all who use it.
