    Handwriting Style

    • Foundations C and D Workbooks are printed in only ONE version. Student samples are in bookface, and students complete exercises in whatever handwriting style they have learned.
      • Lowercase letters are taught in Foundations A.
      • Uppercase letters are taught in Foundations B.
    • Students who need additional handwriting support should use the Copywork Supplement for Foundations C.

    Ordering Information

    • Both the Teacher’s Manuals and Student Workbooks are needed to teach Foundations.
    • All instructions for games are included in the Teacher's Manuals.
    • Foundations C builds systematically on material students have learned in levels A and B. It is not a starting point for the Foundations program.
