Product Description:

This fun sing-along CD is similar in concept to the Get Set for School Sing Along CD. There are 20 songs that use catchy lyrics and an upbeat tune to teach students about letters, and it even sings them through the process of writing some of them. This CD is a great addition to the teaching strategies that the program uses, and students will have a blast listening to it as they complete their handwriting activities. 59 min. Rachel

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.

Kids love music, and music with educational concepts is perfect for preschoolers.

My daughter thought they were silly; we ended up going with a different writing curriculum entirely.

I highly Recommend this HWTs supplement!
I highly recommend this Handwriting Without Tears Rock Tap and Learn CD. This CD is referenced in the teachers guide (see the teachers guide "Kindergarten Teaching Guidelines" pgs 175-181) to accompany teaching letter and number shapes, body awareness, proper pencil grip, etc. This adds pep to handwriting, because many are ideal to sing to to get the wiggles out before you sit to do the handwriting task for the day, all the while learning the handwriting objective while you sing!
