Category Description for Handwriting Without Tears:

Providing a tactile, hands-on approach to handwriting, this approach works well for many types of students.

It is particularly helpful for children who are left-handed children or those who need a more interactive approach to learning. Children who struggle with motor skills or experience cognitive difficulties will also reap great benefits from this program. Unique to this program, practice pages use a two-horizontal-line format rather than the three-horizontal-line format typically found in writing programs, cursive has no slant and letters are formed using a very simple single-stroke, and it uses a multisensory approach to teach. Teaching and practice sessions are short (10-15 minutes), without a lot of meaningless busy work.

Each level of Handwriting without Tears consists of a workbook and teacher guide.

Consumable Student workbooks have horizontal pages in Kindergarten through Grade 2. Grade 3 and up offers vertical pages. Workbooks may be used separately, although at the early levels parents of struggling writers may find the Teacher Guides extremely valuable.

Newly revised in 2018, the Teacher Guides provide additional teaching instruction and support, while the Student Books provide more writing practice for each lesson. While some of the content is the same from the 2013 version, the expanded content means the two editions are not compatible without considerable parental/teacher modification (depending on lesson and level). Please note, the Spanish Student Books are also now updated to 2018 editions. There are currently no Spanish Teacher Guides available. English Teacher Guides provide the overall teaching philosophy, techniques and applicable multi-sensory activities, but do not provide the daily lesson plans.

Teacher Guides include:

  • an overview of the program
  • handwriting instruction
  • the stages of learning and scope and sequence
  • teaching guidelines
  • weekly and daily schedules for each unit
  • instructions on proper posture
  • paper and pencil skills

Following these helpful "how to" sections are lessons corresponding to each page in the student book. Each lesson includes a reduced student page, lesson objective and introduction, lesson plans and enrichment, ELL (English Language Learner) support and Cross Curricular suggestions. The back of each teacher guide includes multisensory activities suggestions, remediation tips, additional strategies for English Language Learners and Children with Special Needs, handwriting standards, references and index. Inside the back cover is a letter formation template for that grade level.

Please note, many of the online interactive resources require an additional purchase and appear to be limited to schools. There is a 30-day trial of the publishers HITT (Handwriting Interactive Teaching Tools) with purchase of the Teacher Guide. While this online support may be helpful, it is certainly not necessary to use this excellent program effectively. Suggested manipulatives are listed with the recommended grade level and the grade level Teacher Guide effectively explains the manipulatives. sc. ~ Deanne

This is the 8th time I have purchased HWT Letters and Numbers for Me. I am comfortable teaching it and my kids are comfortable doing it. There is little frustration and it is straightforward and easy to use. I have used it successfully with the dyslexic and dysgraphic child as well as with the one that has excellent fine motor skills. Seems to be a great fit for all!

Coming back to this book for the 3rd time. The wet-dry-try method using a slate and sponge is very helpful for cementing the motions used in creating our letters.

It is helpful to have a pattern when learning to construct letters. There is a method and my little learner did well by following along!

We love Handwriting Without Tears. I love the order that they teach handwriting. Not alphabetical, but in order of the shapes of the letters. Easy to use and the kids enjoy them.

Great handwriting book for beginning handwriting!
This is my second time using this book and it really works. This time around I got the teachers manual. You can do without it but it does offer more ideas and structure that is really helpful for me. My girls love doing this book and ask to do it. It is simple to follow and very effective at teaching letter and number formation. I love the concept of "frog jump" capitals. Fun book to do, easy, simple and effective.

Good for my left handed son
My son is left handed and easily frustrated with fine motor. He also gets a lot of his writing attempts backwards. This book is actually tolerable for him. The cues, like frog jump, are a less irritating ways to cue, and the amount of repetition is not overwhelming. He is taking pride in his letters for the first time.
Heads up - it wants some manipulatives (small chalkboard and letter sticks) but I used materials I have at home

Good practice
I like that this book includes practice on lowercase, uppercase letters, and whole words. We are using it along side the Get ready for the code a, b, and c books.

Amazing
This program is amazing as all the hype. My kids struggled with handwriting before we switched, also they hated handwriting and we had tried a couple other programs. I will definitely be sticking with handwriting without tears for all my kids. It’s funny when people accidentally call it handwriting with tears. lol because it’s a easy mistake and couldn’t be further then the truth. We just use the book and chalk board.

Simple
My 5 yr old who didnt like to write anything because he thought he couldn't do it good enough loves this book.
Simple, short pages. Clear instructions. Practice tracing and then on your own. Really well laid out. Very pleased with this company. All I ordered was the workbooks, no teachers texts. And it is quite straightforward.

Love Handwriting without tears
This book is great! It helped my son catch up with his peers in handwriting, and right now it is challenging my younger daughter who wanted to learn her letters before they were being taught at her preschool.

Great program for avoiding letter/number reversals
I love this program. Not necessarily a standard style, but specifically designed to avoid letter and number reversals. Very little backward d's, b's, 9's and 6's with this program.
