My 3 year-old 4 year-old and I have been working through this workbook together They get so excited to color the simple animals especially when they get to make their legs I have been surprised at how easy it is for them to make a new letter or shape after each lesson We learn laugh and make up stories about our pictures I have found that it works best when I sit down to color with them letting them be creative and also showing them new ideas by simply doing something on my page that they then try to imitate The book really emphasizes top-down and left-right techniques in a way that my kids don't even notice what they are learning! There is a nice balance of teaching the kids to follow directions and letting their own creativity flow I would recommend the CD that goes with it as well Coloring is so much fun as we sing along to "The aunt the bug and the bee" or "Where do you start your letters? At the top!" I do not have the teacher's manual but I did look over my friends' copy and I think it is helpful to have an idea of how the manufacturer meant for the lessons to be taught My older child used to hesitate to draw anything for himself but now he feels comfortable drawing houses bugs with legs people and writing his own name!

My four year old is working through this workbook I do not have the teachers manual because the teaching schedule can be downloaded for free on the HWT website We are using the cd wood letters blue mat chalkboard and crayons You could get away with less but my son is a reluctant writer He doesn't normally even like to color but he will when we listen to the cd I would recommend this program

I was so excited when this book arrived a couple of months ago for my PreK student (she's turning five this week)However Perhaps because she's old for her grade (a February baby) this book seems far too basic to have started midway through this year She likes the pictures she likes the simplicity of the page layout but she has been forming letters for a while now and this book does not add much or build on her prior experience with writing the ABCsMy daughter doesn't complain about having to do these pages but neither does it seem like she's actually learning anything - so why waste her time?As an aside the letter shapes in all the Handwriting Without Tears books are definitely "weird" very simplified certain letters like the C and the 2 look very little like the way most people write themNevertheless I like the style of these books the clean layout and the fact that there isn't too much repetition so I am ordering the next level up Hopefully that will offer some challenge along with lowercase letters
