What a great way to introduce young children to writing in a wonderfully engaging way. The premise of the program is that all print letters are formed with big lines, little lines, big curves and little curves. Yep! That's it! Initially I was a bit concerned about the nontraditional formation of the letters, but after a child has mastered the formation, but there was no cause for concern. I highly recommend purchasing the teacher's guide (great stuff and history of the program), as well as the wooden manipulatives/letter formation cards. My kids have also loved the cd with songs relating to the letters that they are learning. The best, by far, handwriting program that I have used in all of my years of teaching. It is a systematic approach and JUST MAKES SENSE... and no tears are involved!

As a homeschooling parent I have reviewed the countless handwriting curriculums that are available for purchase. Many of the programs are all "whistles and bells" without much substance. After extensive reviewing my husband and I selected the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum for our homeschool. Handwriting Without Tears was developed by occupational therapist Jan Olsen in response to her sons need for remedial handwriting. This curriculum works well with students of all levels, especially those who are developing their motor skills or those who have cognative/physical impairments. This particular worktext focuses on "getting set for school", featuring a kid friendly format while focusing on writing readiness and forming the upper case letters and numbers. This curriculum includes the following worktexts: PreK: Get Set For School, Kindergarten: Letters and Number for Me, First Grade: My Printing Book, Second Grade: Printing Power, Third Grade: Cursive Handwriting, Fourth Grade: Cursive Success. This program definately lives up to it's name, I have seen the success in our own home.
