We love to get honest feedback from teachers, and we think it’s helpful for teachers who are considering Zaner-Bloser Handwriting to hear directly from teachers who use the program.
We gave four teacher-bloggers an opportunity to try out the program and share their thoughts about it. Click through to their blog posts to see what they had to say.
"...we've practiced using question marks and exclamation points correctly in sentences. The students also practiced question words (who, what, when, and where) along with the question marks."
Tales of a First Grade Teacher found the handwriting lessons on punctuation marks especially helpful for practicing important language arts skills.
"I gave them permission to flip through the pages, and they immediately asked, 'Can we take these home?'"
The Super Sparkly Teacher's students were eager to practice with their Zaner-Bloser Handwriting Student Editions from the very beginning.
"These little videos are perfect for the handwriting center!"
The Schroeder Page appreciated the Handwriting Tutor QR codes and knows just how to use them in her classroom.
"I love that I am able to effectively teach cursive without taking too much time up during the day—we average less than 15 minutes a day for each lesson. I love that my students really enjoy the program, and more importantly love cursive writing!"
An Apple for the Teacher found that teaching cursive fit easily into the school day and that students were very fond of the program.
