Quick Overview

Spencerian Penmanship Theory Book plus Five Copy Books
  • Details

    This book explains how all the letters can be made gracefully and rapidly using various combinations of a few basic pen strokes. It explains Spencer's philosophy of teaching principles which engage the mind as well as the hand. It also details his methods for teaching classes of children. One of these is having the children write rhythmically, in concert, as the teacher counts. The power of this method is being rediscovered today. The five copybooks listed below make a complete course in elementary school handwriting. They can be used in any of the grades. Book 1 Introduces all the short letters. Only four strokes, or principles, as Spencer called them, are needed to produce these letters. Book 2:Adds some of the tall letters - t and d - and the numerals 1-9. Book 3: Completes the lower case alphabet and introduces most of the capitals. Book 4: Completes the capital alphabet and provides practice on all the letters as they appear in words. Book 5: Presents sentences and sayings for writing practice. Examples: Kind words can never die. Promise little and do much. Size 0.49" H x 8.4" L x 7.16" W, 184 pages,
