More Information

Writing for Learning: Reading and Writing Readiness for pre-k helps students develop essential early literacy skills such as:

  • Letter and numeral recognition
  • Visual discrimination
  • Directionality
  • Perceptual and motor skills
  • Size relationships
  • Left and right hand

Formerly the 2nd edition of Universal Publishing Handwriting, this series has been relaunched as "Writing for Learning." These straightforward, no-nonsense handwriting workbooks are 8.5" x 11" with the first seven in landscape format. The series consists of 11 books, designed to help students all the way from learning the basic strokes to mastering cursive. Books feature color covers, but are black-and-white inside.Reading/Writing Readiness gets students ready to write by engaging them in a series of prewriting activities including tracing and drawing lines (up and down, left to right, and slanted), tracing and drawing shapes, matching letters, numbers and shapes, coloring, and completing mazes. In the PK/K level, children are ready to learn how to write their manuscript letters from Aa to Zz. Many pages also offer an activity such as a matching or maze exercise. Thegrades K and 1 levels feature slightly smaller writing lines and review all of the manuscript letters A-Z and guide students toward writing short words and sentences. Students begin the transition to cursive in book M/C (2nd grade). The first part of this book reviews manuscript. Students then learn the additional strokes for cursive and the cursive alphabet, practicing individual letters and short sentences. The third grade book is similar to the cursive part of the transition book, offering review of each cursive letter with individual letters, words, and sentences.

The last four books in the series are portrait format and feature smaller lines. These continue offering cursive practice, with most pages progressing from letter practice to word practice to practice writing a sentence or a paragraph. The sentences and paragraphs to copy are always very educationally-focused, including facts about plants and animals, tidbits on geographical places and famous people, and other interesting pieces of information. Between practice on individual letters, there are occasionally opportunities to practice "real-life" writing, such as writing an address on a postcard or filling out a job application form. Overall, a solid choice for learning traditional style handwriting that offers plenty of cursive enrichment. 80 pages each, pb. - Melissa

These materials are graded specifically and include both instruction and practice.

This year we've used 3 levels of Universal Publishing's handwriting programsMy 3 year old son is using the Getting Ready to Write and I SO wish I had used this for my older 2! I'm certainly planning on using it for the 2 youngest after him!This book is very simple and easy to use The two open pages are the perfect amount of work for a young preschoolerThe size of strokes required and the order of skills taught is absolutely on target with a 3 year old's developmental needsNo teacher's manual is necessaryThe cost is very lowMy son LOVES to work in the book and I must pace him When school work is fun it makes the day go by so much better!
