Peterson Directed Handwriting Reviw

As a member of the TOS Homeschool Crew, I had been  asked to review a printing handwriting program created by the company Peterson Directed Handwriting. Peterson Directed Handwriting is a personalized handwriting program. I was able to work directly with Rand Nelson from Peterson Directed Handwriting to tailor a course that will be personalized to my children. You can find the website here:

My family and I are traveling throughout the USA this summer on a four week tour of the different sights to see in this beautiful country. I had planned the four weeks of curriculum that we would be taking with us on our trip and I included the Peterson Directed Handwriting printing curriculum for my first grader and my preschooler. I adapted the preschool program to use with my daughters' phonics program. For example, our first phonics letter was the letter L. So I printed out all the Ll worksheets so she could practice her handwriting along with the letter sounds. I was pleased with the adaptability of this and was happy to not have to lug along a thick workbook on our vacation. I only printed what I needed and the teaching tips are on the worksheets, so there is no need to lug around another teaching manual.

The prices range depending on your needs, so if you are interested in purchasing this, you can go to their website and plug in the different products to fit your family. The website is very interactive as well, and contains teaching helps and tips. Overall, I liked this program. I liked the fact that I only need to print out the pages I need, and unlike a workbook, I can have the same program for my younger children as they get ready to use them.

Please see what my fellow Crew members have to say about this program:

As a member of the TOS Homeschool Crew, I was given the printing version of the Peterson Directed Handwriting to review for free in exchange for my honest review.
