New American Cursive–Sponsor Spotlight–#ABE2

My last sponsor for A Blogtastic Extravaganza is New American Cursive!
New American Cursive
New American Cursive is a handwriting curriculum that is just wonderful!  I know that sounds weird… I mean, it’s handwriting… but it is!  The reason I like it so much is because it teaches cursive in the way that most of us currently write.  You know those fancy F’s and T’s??  There are none of those is New American Cursive!  I love this!  Who writes like that anymore??  Okay… I know some of you do… and more power to ya… but for the most part when people are writing in cursive and they need to do a capital T, they just do a print capital T, and then continue the rest of the word in cursive.  Right??  I know that’s what I do.

Well, New American Cursive took notice and made some workbooks that will teach a child cursive, while leaving out all the crazy letters that none very few of us write anymore.  Some of the advantages to this handwriting curriculum as stated on their website are:
  • Unnecessary strokes eliminated -- NAC® has from 5 to 31 fewer strokes than the current five most used cursive styles.
  • "T" & "F" capitals are printed forms to reduce confusion between them; printed capital "Z" is easier & more fun to make.
  • "M" & "N" have less retracing, allowing the writer to move forward on the page more fluidly.
  • Balanced length on the upper and lower extensions of the f, g, j, p, q, y & z.
Also, check out 7 year old Grazia Ferraro’s awesome handwriting on the New American Cursive’s Facebook page.  She won the World Penmanship Contest in her age group. Congratulations Grazia!  Oh, did I mention she is a New American Cursive student?? Smile

Alright, so what will New American Cursive send to the winner of my A Blogtastic Extravaganza 2.0 Back to ‘Home’ School winner??  I’m glad you asked… the winner will receive (among the other prizes) New American Cursive Workbooks 1 AND 2.

Just head on over to the A Blogtastic Extravaganza giveaway post and enter to win!

AND… if you ‘like’ the New American Cursive Facebook page, you get an extra entry into the giveaway!!  Yay!  You have to go to the extra entries post to make it count, but it is well worth it and there are other extra entries you can do while you are there!

Good luck!
