Handwriting without Tears PreK Curriculum

Children will joyfully learn handwriting readiness skills with Handwriting Without Tears' Pre-Kindergarten Kit that includes My First School Book. Students will learn to develop crucial readiness and pre-writing skills such as:

  • Social-emotional activities for school readiness
  • Basic habits for letter and number formation
  • Music and movement
  • Building and drawing
  • Unique crayon strokes
  • Color and shape activities

The set of capital letter cards is designed to be used with Wood Pieces Set for Capital Letters. Cards show the correct formation of capital letters with size, shape, and position concepts. Following the teacher's example, students place wood pieces on the Mat to make capital letters. The mat and wood pieces can also be used with the Mat Man Hands to create the "Mat Man!"

The set of Roll-a-Dough letters will help address more senses than writing alone, helping children develop correct formation, spacing, sequencing, and other writing skills. Children will create capital letters using hands-on magnetic stamps. The Stamp and See magnetic screen comes with a writing tool, eraser slide, and magnetic letter-piece stamps; it promotes important fine motor skills and lets children form letters/numbers on their own.

Teach your students letter formations and placement of letters on double lines with hands-on slate chalkboard activities. The sets of little sponges and little chalk pieces are also included.
