Handwriting ZB Style - Resembles Zaner-Bloser

The Basic Layout of the Printable Lessons

Two Identical Lessons per Sheet: There are two identical lessons on most of the printable worksheets. Why are there two identical lessons on each sheet? It seems like a odd idea now and I am having trouble remembering why I decided to make them this way, but I suppose the second lesson could be saved and used a week or two later or given to a second student.

Handwriting ZB Style - A handwriting set by Donna Young

Dotted, Hollow, Boxes, and Practice: The letters are either dotted or the letters are hollow. One of the worksheets with dotted letters also have individual letter boxes with a starting dot. Each letter style, dotted or hollow, will have a practice worksheet. The dotted letter worksheets have both tracing and practice worksheets. The hollow letter worksheets have starting dot.

The Letter Height of the Printed Worksheet

"A" is pictured, but represents any worksheet in this set

Below is a photograph of my two copies along with an old yellow ruler. As you can see, the height is just over 1/2 of an inch or 14 mm. The letter size might vary a little from person to person.
