zb style lettersDon't miss the large manuscript handwriting set that is in "By Style." The set there have over 500 printable files and each file has two lessons. I made this set while I was cooped up in one room while our home was being repaired. The set also includes manuscript handwriting animations. This time I made capital letter animations as well as the usual animations for the lowercase letters. This very large set is made with letters that resemble the Zaner-Bloser style of penmanship. The homepage for the set is at: ZB Style - Printable Handwriting Worksheets and the homepage for the animations is at: Donna Young's Manuscript Handwriting Animations.
