10.5 - Penmanship Practice
Read a book with a TITLE on the cover that is written in cursive - where many or all of the letters are connected, sometimes making a word one single complex stroke. All the words in the title should be written in cursive, and at least two pairs of letters need to be connected. Subtitles may be ignored.
Delicious! by Ruth Reichl , Voracious A Hungry Reader Cooks Her Way through Great Books by Cara Nicoletti , The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer , The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach
Required: Include the cover in your post.
