Handwriting without Tears

Handwriting without Tears aims to make legible and fluent handwriting an automatic, mastered skill. Simple for home educators to use, children develop their writing skills through multisensory play-based instruction. Activities with hands-on materials-Wood Pieces Set, Capital Letter Cards, Mat, CDs, Slate Chalkboard, and Blackboard-address different senses to teach correct formation, spacing, sequencing, and other writing skills.
The student workbook provides the examples, practices, and exercises for the kindergarten student. Perfect for children who need to develop fine motor skills, are still learning prepositions and direction terms, and do not yet know or write letters and numbers, this course will provide a fun, multisensory curriculum to start off their language arts knowledge.
Perfect for students who are learning to print lowercase letters and could use some capital and number review, students who are writing words and simple sentences should be placed in this level of Handwriting without Tears. Lessons emphasize the correct use of lowercase letters in words and sentences, while "Learn & Check" sections help teachers and students check letter, word, and sentence skills. Activity pages combine handwriting instruction with other language arts lessons.
