This is one of my favorite homeschool products that we are utilizing this year!
I am a strong believer in copywork and I was thrilled to add Presidential Penmanship to our homeschool days.
All compiled on one CD-Rom or ebook form, Presidential Penmanship, by Zeezok Publishing includes copywork for grades 1 through senior high. Each level contains more difficult and longer passages suited for the grade level.
Each lesson is composed of a presidential quote, scripture passage or excerpt from one of our founding documents written in the specified handwriting style chosen. A lined space underneath the copywork makes it easy for the student to copy in their neatest handwriting.
Presidential Penmanship Handwriting Style Options
- AB Handwriting Style *our family’s style
- BJ Handwriting Style
- DN Handwriting Style
- HWOT Handwriting Style
- Italic Handwriting Style
- ZB Handwriting Style
How it Benefits Students
This is considered a supplemental handwriting course meaning it doesn’t teach the handwriting basics. The student would need to be familiar with their letter formations before engaging in Presidential Penmanship. My second grader jumped right into the program without any problems.
Presidential Penmanship helps students practice their handwriting skills while recognizing the principles of our nation’s founding and history while reinforcing character qualities of good citizenship.
Sadly, this is lacking in today’s society.

How it Works for Us
Each week, I printed the upcoming week’s lesson for each student. After the student finished their lesson for the day, I had them show me their work and we discussed the meaning behind what the quote, passage, or document meant to us as American citizens. It sparked great conversation each morning.
For my 6th grader, I encouraged him to look up any unfamiliar word in the 1828 Noah Webster’s Dictionary. It also gave us an opportunity to discuss the grammar mechanics in the quote. He never gets bored because he is introduced to a new quote each day.
We are really enjoying the Presidential Penmanship each day. It makes copywork fun and interesting for my boys. And not to the mention the inquisitive wisdom they are being exposed to while mastering their handwriting.
Presidential Penmanship– (Complete Program) is 39.99 and can be purchased at Zeezok Publishing website.
