I am teaching Third grade in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago. Edgewater is an extremely diverse area and the students in my class are from various backgrounds making our class a melting pot of ethnicities. I teach Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Science, and a zillion life lessons a day. Third grade is a benchmark year for so many things. Students must learn multiplication, all about Chicago, many students are reading chapter books for the first time... One thing that is an important benchmark and a favorite of most of my students is learning cursive. It is difficult for many of my students, though, and I have come across a wonderful series from a fellow teacher in my building called Handwriting Without Tears. I would love to have a class set of these gems so that my entire class can have a chance to use the workbooks. If my students are able to write in their workbooks they will be able to look back at letters that they have previously learned. I think they are a fabulous way to teach cursive.
