Why Choose the Grades K-5
D’Nealian® Handwriting Curriculum

D’Nealian makes it easy to incorporate handwriting instruction into your everyday routine.

 
 

The D’Nealian Advantage

  • Support early literacy and fine motor skills development through a continuous stroke, with a focus on proper letter slant, size, and spacing.
  • Ease the transition from manuscript to cursive since most lowercase letters are the same in cursive.
  • Cut down on common reversals such as b and d or p and g, because there are few pencil lifts.
 

Handwriting Practice for
Every Learning Modality

D’Nealian provides rich practice options for every student, including:

  • Additional printable Student Practice pages
  • Kinesthetic and tactile learning in Grades K-2 with Alpha Touch Letters, Tracing Letter and Number Cards, and a classroom set of Wipe-On/Off Rewrite Cards
  • Audio-visual modeling of proper handwriting strokes through Stroke Modeling Animations
