Catholic Penmanship Practice

Catholic handwriting Practice sheets. Baltimore Catechism. Manuscript and cursive writing sheets. Beautiful!

Combine great penmanship practice with great content!

What could be better than the Baltimore Catechism and the Catholic Bible for manuscript or cursive handwriting practice?

Truly, in all my years I've found that there are two main things that improve a person's handwriting.

  • One is the expectation and the opportunity to make each letter perfectly which usually requires enforcement or at least engagement. 
  • The other is to want to write beautifully. This is the best "engagement method". See a couple stories of this below.

Penmanship practice is time well spent. If you as teacher require perfect practice, your kids' practice can help them to have perfect handwriting for the rest of their lives. See more about our penmanship worksheets below:

A Little Handwriting Story

Here's another precious moment. One day, unable to define that he was bored and wanted to do school work like his older brothers and sisters, our little son asked:

"Mom. What can I do?"

"Here, I'll print a handwriting practice sheet for you!"

It made it easy for him to practice handwriting and he was so proud of his new project!

Using an e-copybook is similar to the old method of teaching while students use a slate for copywork; so it's relatively a simple, yet beautiful assignment.

Easy To Print, Easy To Use

You will like the fact that our printable handwriting worksheets are:

  • Perfect for school and catechetical use.
  • Perfect for a large Catholic homeschool family.
  • Use the catechism questions and answers. 
  • Are easy to print as handwriting practice sheets, memory aids, and busywork.
  • Individual penmanship practice sheets can be produced at will.

Several children can be working on the same assignment with no end to the number of copies they can use till "practice makes perfect".

This is true for successive years as well. The basic Catholic beliefs remain true through the years. No need to update in future years.

When God blesses you with many children you can rejoice that you've found Saint Anne's Helper.

Our catechism eCopybooks do not need to be purchased again, which saves you money through the years.

5. Teach Cursive Handwriting

Use Cursive Handwriting Practice Sheets

Do you teach cursive handwriting? I do.

Writing in cursive is usually faster than printing which makes it handy and has an educated look which can present well.

Cursive writing can also help little ones recognize where a word stops and the next one begins, thereby helping them read their own handwriting better.

These worksheets offer excellent cursive writing practice.

Interest In Learning Cursive Writing

Here's a very quick way to improve handrwriting. Simple.

There was a time when one of my own little children asked, "How do you write so neatly?"

The answer? "I simply want to."

I showed her my notes in my planner. Um... Not so neat.

Then I showed her the Thank You note I had written to a friend. It was a quiet lightbulb moment for her - she's written nicely ever since that moment. Instant improvement.

6. Communion Handwriting Practice Sheets

Printable Catechism Worksheets

Communion handwriting practice sheets.

Our First Communion eCopybook has two versions in the same download, manuscript print or cursive. Use them as handwriting practice sheets at the same time you're teaching catechism. 

  • The words are timeless so they're great for any age.
  • Children can practice manuscript writing.
  • Or Cursive writing. Two for one. :-)
  • Copywork format is easy.
  • I like coil binding them, yet a three ring binder has worked for years. 

You can tie a ribbon or twist-tie through three-hole punched papers to preserve the worksheets in your records. Our son used zip-ties one year. Genius.

Audio Catechism Download

Our First Communion Catechism eCopybook is available as one download of both the manuscript and cursive writing worksheets of the same material that is in the audio CDs and downloads of St. Anne's Helper Audio Catechism CD.

  • They can be printed as an entire book or as individual handwriting sheets.
  • These sheets offer good thoughts to write.
  • They use the traditional Catholic catechism answers.
  • They have the catechetical questions most frequently studied in grade school.
  • They match our Audio Catechism CDs verbatim.
  • They offer a model of beautiful handwriting.

These downloads are instant and the CDs are wonderful gifts of faith, especially at the beginning of the Communion year or at Christmas.

7. Confirmation Handwriting Practice Sheets

Bonus: Catechism Practice Tests or Quizzes

Confirmation handwriting practice sheets: Manuscript and Cursive.

St. Anne's Helper has a catechism e-copybook for First Communion preparation and another for Catholic Confirmation.

They each use the text of St. Anne's Catholic Audio Catechism so you also have good material for your child's mind to learn the Faith while practicing penmanship. See samples above and print them to share.

Each catechism copybook is fully reproducible for as many years as you like. You store it in your own computer. Think of the savings in not having to buy a new copybook every year for each new child learning the Catholic catechism.

BONUS: These files have a similar format as the Communion dowloads; yet they also have bonus Confirmation tests that you can use as homework practice or as quizzes.

Easy Handwriting Practice

If your children or students are in the years before receiving Confirmation, they will do well to use this Confirmation e-copybook to learn the Baltimore Catechism Confirmation answers.

They can also brush up on their handwriting.

  • With older students you can print the workbooks two-up. This makes the font smaller and they love the nicer look of their handwriting when it is small.
  • As a memory exercise you can assign that they read the question once and the answer three times, before they then copy the answers once. Easy. Effective.
  • The Confirmation Catechism eCopybook is now available as a download of both the Manuscript and Cursive worksheets.

You now have Catholic penmanship practice sheets that can help your children have beautiful handwriting practice and a strong faith at the same time.

8. Interactive Handwriting Practice Sheets

Newly, all our printables are interactive!

What are interactive handwriting practice sheets?

They're worksheets that your students can use on the computer.

All they have to do is type what they see. This is great for typing practice, too. Then simply file your children's work. 

Give it a try on the samples at the top of this page. :-)

9. Penmanship Practice Worksheets

Use these worksheets in penmanship class. If you're homeschooling or teaching in a Catholic school, you can use these outside of catechism class for penmanship practice.

Our individual penmanship practice sheets review the faith well because the basic Catholic beliefs remain true through the years. No need to update in future years.

They're also plain common sense penmanship practice.

Like workbooks? Print these and bind them with a plastic spiral binding with a clear plastic cover on the front and a sturdy plastic cover on the back.

Or punch holes in the worksheets to put them in three ring binders. This way you can replace and repeat pages while keeping them organized in the same place.

  • Using an ecopybook is similar to the old method of teaching using copywork. Imagine the Roman students learning their Latin copywork.
  • Think of the copywork that Laura Ingalls and her daughter Rose did to improve memory and to have perfect handwriting, yet this can be easier since the text to be copied is immediately above the ruled lines for writing. 
  • Younger students and those who are struggling appreciate this benefit and begin to gain confidence for "real" writing.

Using Catholic penmanship practice sheets makes the copybook idea one step more convenient to you.
