The Get Set for School program is the high quality program you would expect from Handwriting Without Tears. This program was designed specifically for the preschool years, and uses the fun methods you would expect for that age. This program employs a unique, multisensory approach which prepares children to write. Children will play, build, sing, color and learn while developing important skills. Readiness & Writing Pre-K Teacher's Guide, now in its 8th edition, provides everything you need to understand the program and developmental stages to effectively teach the lessons. Topically, children learn the alphabet, letter and number recognition and formation, counting, shapes, colors and drawing. The writing focus is on uppercase letters, while lowercase letters are taught toward the end of the year (beginning in Week 30) using the My First Lowercase Book. Complete explanations are given on how to use the suggested manipulatives. Lessons are easy to use and there is a suggested 36 week schedule found in the front of the book. Crayon skills are developed while using special pages for scribbling and coloring. Strokes are practiced on "Mat Man" before ever making a letter. Capital letters and numbers are then practiced using a crayon. There are also extra activity pages which check readiness skills.

I Know My Numbers is a set of 10 small horizontal booklets (14 pgs ea), each centered on a number 1-10 that a student methodically works through as they practice writing and understanding these numbers. They are full of charming black and white illustrations and clear instruction. Little Chalk Bits is a good sized box (about 6.5"x 4"x 2) full of 1 pieces of thin (1cm) white chalk. This will go a long way! Little Sponge Cubes is a set of 100 (50 yellow/50 blue) small cubes (1cm) of kitchen sponge. Just right for tiny fingers to erase with!

This is a wonderful introduction to the world of handwriting for the preschool child.We offer several packages with both the most essential and also with recommended items for the program to fit your budget.


A follow up book to preschool is Kick Start Kindergarten, which reviews upper and lowercase letters, or the Kindergarten program, Letters and Numbers for Me.

My son has almost completed the preschool workbook and is now ready to move on to the next level. The preschool level (green book) does not include lower case letters. This will introduce lower case letters. Handwriting Without Tears has been great at helping me to teach proper crayon/pencil grip and proper formation of letters. I especially like the approach in this curriculum to teaching left handers. My son loves this curriculum!

I love that these workbooks teach the correct letter formation: where to start and what direction to go so that your writing can be smooth.

This book looked complete and easy to follow for a student to follow and the sentence writing is a must to help the student understand why writing that particular letter is important.

Do I need the teachers manual for this?
A shopper on Oct 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It can basically be used without a TE, but you sort of miss the whole purpose of using this program which is explicit, hands-on instruction. For instance, there are a group of capital letters which are taught as the "frog jump capitals" and you say, "Big line down, frog jump up, little line across the top, little line across the middle". That would be for the letter F. The kids pick up on the sayings and it really helps with letter formation.
