D'Nealian - recommeded order...

I am looking for the recommended order for teaching D'Nealian handwriting. I have heard that it easier for the students to group the learning of certain letters together. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!

When I taught D'Nealian...

This may only be helpful if you have the actual D'Nealian teacher's book or student workbook. But, if you follow the exact order that the letters are presented in the workbook, your kids should do great! They introduce the letters in a certain order, with certain strokes, and as long as you follow the order suggested, you should be fine. If you don't have access to the book, I think the letters started out with: lowercase a, d,o,g,c.... It's been over 8 years since I taught it in Kindergarten so I can't remember all of them.

I hope this helps.

When my school taught D'Nelian, I used the teaching order from Handwriting Without Tears. An OT in your building might have more info about it. They are all grouped my common parts. I don't have the info here in front of me, but you might really like the teaching prompts and order.

Lesson Planning....

That's funny - I'm starting my HWOT lessons tomorrow, and have the teacher's guide right here in my lap. The order goes:
c o s v w t a d g u i e l k y j p r n m h b f q x z - lower case
F E D P B R N M H K L U V W X Y Z C O Q G S A I T J - upper case

The actual guide has several awesome 'methods' to use. If you can pick one up, it would be worth your while. If your school district is not using HWOT, you may be able to pick up some of the material at your local teacher supply store. However, if HWOT is being taught in the area, I've heard that HWOT will not allow retail sales and you will have to order from the company.

D'Nealian order

I have the Scott Foresman D'Nealian handwriting teacher's edition. Here's the order that they have the letters for 2nd grade printing:
a,d, o, g, c, e, s, f, b, l, t, h, k, i, u, w, y, j, r, n, m, p, q, v, z, x
They review the lower case and capital letters at the same time.

This is the order for 2nd grade cursive:
l, h, k, t, i, u, e, j, p, a, d, c, n, m, x, g, y, q, o, w, b, v, z, s, r, f
A, C, E, O, H, K, N, M, U, V, W, Y, T, F, B, P, R, G, S, I, Q, Z, D, J, X, L

You can probably contact Scott Foresman or another company and ask for a sample of their D'Nealian series. Then you would have something you could make copies out of.
