Learning to Write

Inspired by the Montessori teaching method of the three-period lesson, HeadU’s Writing Lab gives children three different ways to learn letters and letter sounds and to practice handwriting and reading. After putting together 18 different word puzzles made up of pieces that are combinations of letters and pictures, children will form words using letter tiles that match the puzzle, and then practice writing the letters and words with a dry-erase marker on a whiteboard grid.  As they practice handwriting and letter sounds, youngsters will strengthen their fine motor skills and shape recognition. The set includes 72 letter and letter puzzle tiles, 3 dry-erase word house boards, 3 small dry-erase cards, 1 dry-erase marker, and instructions, in a sturdy storage box. Ages 3 to 6.

Introduce your little one to writing their letters with this Montessori inspired writing activity. Each of the 25 sturdy whiteboards has two usable sides. One side has the outline of a letter with handwriting strokes and the picture of an object that starts with the letter.  The second side has three words that start with the letter, printed on a grid. As children trace the letters using the dry-erase marker that’s included, they will begin to develop fine motor skills, letter recognition, and awareness of letter sounds. The grid lines help them learn to write uniformly, with proper letter size and spaces between letters as they write words. 25 6¼” x 4½” whiteboard cards, 1 dry-erase pen. Ages 3 to 6.

Calligraphy & Graphic Design

This classic introduction presents the fundamentals behind every aspect of the art of penmanship, from the necessary equipment to the best techniques. Many pages of demonstration scripts provide helpful accompaniment to the clear instructions. Written by an expert calligrapher whose books were widely used in schools, this volume offers an essential guide to those who practice or teach lettering and graphic design. 144 pages, softcover.
