Of course, this not only makes it easier for Mom, but also benefits the child who is just beginning to grasp reading.

However, the Catholic Heritage Handwriting primary program was designed not only to teach penmanship, but also to reduce cost for homeschoolers by incorporating integrated learning. That is, the handwriting program not only teaches penmanship, but also serves as a reading/phonics workbook, reinforcing the lessons that the student is learning in
