Handwriting without Tears aims to make legible and fluent handwriting an automatic, mastered skill. Simple for home educators to use, lessons take only 15 minutes a day. The main objective for students is to achieve goals, not to finish a set number of pages.

This second grade kit is designed for children in the second grade or functioning at that level. This curriculum is perfect for students who need to practice lowercase letter formation, placement on lines, or spacing; a child who needs a quick review of capitals and numbers; and a child who is writing sentences and paragraphs.

This student workbook provides the examples, practices, and exercises for the 2nd Grade student. Lessons cover capitals and lower case letters, which are arranged according to their formation; number instructions are also provided. Lesson plans incorporate letter review with words and sentences, while activity pages combine handwriting instruction with simple writing exercises. 94 pages. Grade 2. Pages are reproducible for the same child's practice and benefit. Pages are not to be reproduced for siblings or others.

The Printing Power 2nd grade teacher's guide provides tips and lesson plans that emphasize letter skills, word skills, and sentence skills. There's plenty of information on how to prepare for lessons, stages of learning, instructional stages, a scope & sequence, posture, grip, spacing, and other helpful hints. Lessons include scripted questions, reproductions of reduced-size student pages, multisensory activities, finger trace and check models with instructions, page numbers, word lists, and more. 190 pages, softcover.

Double Line Paper solves the problem of line confusion. The bottom line keeps the writing straight and the midline controls the size of the letters. Lines are spaced 3/16" apart.

The "Rock, Rap, Tap, & Learn Audio CD" features songs to help develop coordination and rhythm, developing self-esteem and body awareness through upbeat and "rocking" songs. Tracks will help students develop pencil grip and writing posture, as well as letter and number formations. 25 songs and Lyrics booklet included.

Teach your students letter formations and placement of letters on double lines with hands-on blackboard activities. Measures 10" x 17". The sets of little sponges and little chalk pieces can also be used with the slate for parents using the Wet-Dry-Try method.
