Publisher Description:

This workbook is for first grade students or those working at that level.

  • Lessons emphasize the correct use of lowercase letters in words and sentences
  • Activity pages combine handwriting instruction with other language arts lessons
  • Practice pages teach writing on different styles of lines

Category Description for My Printing Book - Grade 1:

Building on the previous courses, My Printing reviews capital letters and numbers but primarily focuses on the correct use of lowercase letters in words and sentences. Activity pages combine handwriting instruction with other language arts lessons and children are given the opportunity to practice on different styles of lines.




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

My son is autistic and struggles with fine motor skills. We tried another writing curriculum for kindergarten and it was NOT handwriting without tears. I am hopeful this curriculum will serve him better for first grade. The pages are simple and I like how they eliminated the top line for writing. I hope it makes more sense to my son.

Handwriting Without Tears has made a HUGE difference for my son's handwriting. It used to be full of tears and frustration but now he demands to try to write the letters before I can even write out the example for him! Would highly recommend for any child that has sensory needs or poor fine motor skills.

The hardest thing about teaching is knowing where to start. HWT's big line/little line/big curve/little curve gave me just that, and now we're bringing our third

All 3 of my homeschoolers are using the Handwriting Without Tears series with great success. I chose this book since it is what's next for my 1st grader after completing the kindergarten book. The program has super short lessons that is successful since they know what to expect each day and I can watch them grow in penmanship slowly and properly. A+

I have a second grader (3rd in fall) who is not brilliant at handwriting. Which book would be good to start with? He can write but it is barely legible and I want something for him to sit and do so he slows down and writes correctly. Would the first grade or second grade book be better to start for correcting the poor writing?
User on Apr 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can probably start with Printing Power, but you should know that the strength of this program lies in its multisensory approach. I strongly recommend getting the teacher's manual and using the strategies it covers for helping your child physically prepare for writing. My kids loved the wood pieces for capital letters, but the roll-a-dough letters and chalk slate for the wet-dry try are also good choices.

The HWOT website is also full of good ideas and free printables that will help you. I use it for custom copywork pages.

Would the first grade or second grade book be better to start for correcting the poor writing?
A shopper on Apr 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would start with first and be vigilant with practice and every time doing it right. I would say things like well it's not good but will work and now my 4th grader still struggles. Better to be consistent from the beginning.
I am deciding between Letters and Numbers for Me and My Printing Book. My daughter will start Kindergarten this Fall. She already knows how to write her letters but could use help with writing them on the lines and spelling words. Which would be best?
A shopper on Mar 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would go with the My Printing book. It progresses to words and not just letter formation. I think Letters and Numbers for me would just be review for her.
Do I really need the printing teachers guide? Or can I just buy the printing book for my son?
A shopper on Mar 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I didn't buy the teachers guide and feel it was not needed. Our son did great just using the workbook.

easy to use
This workbook is easy to use: it lays open nicely, it is obvious how to use it, and the letters are formed in a way that still looks like traditional printing, but is less awkward (and more like real life) than the strict ball-and-stick method (do any of us actually make an "a" by making a complete circle, lifting the pencil, and then drawing the stick?!) We began with this grade 1 book for my 7 year old, who could already print, but not well. It will not take us the entire year--we do about 2 pages per day, which takes perhaps 10 minutes.

My favorite thing about "My Printing Book" is that it is addressed to the child, not the teacher. In the very front of the book, there is a letter to the student that even encourages him/her to color the pictures, and in effect, "own" the book for his/her own. We are using it this year with my 6 year-old son, who has never enjoyed handwriting, and as a result, as never excelled at it. Last year, (his kindergarten year), we used another curriculum and ended up putting handwriting away completely toward the end of the year (February or March, maybe?) because it had become such a sore spot for much frustration between me and him. I just decided we'd try again this year with a fresh start with a new curriculum. So far, (we're about 2/3 of the way through it), it has not been the cure-all for our handwriting frustrations that I wish it could be, but while he still doesn't like handwriting, it's not as stressful as it was last year! Because it's addressed to him, contains interesting sentences to copy, and plenty of pictures, he's more willing to give it a chance, and for that reason, I'm seriously considering ordering another book just like it once he's finished and letting him complete the whole thing all over again.

Such a help for my young writer
My youngest was struggling with forming her letters and I was nervous about teaching her correctly as she is strongly left handed and I'm not. This book helped bridge the gap for us and she has done very well! I highly recommend this program.
