Product Description:

ReadyWriter Drill Masters use a more pictorial (visual) approach to learning strokes, letters and numbers. Each exercise is a scene from Farmer Brown's farm with a fun little story. They will complete pictures, go through mazes, and trace letters and numbers. This is a basic print program that can be used with young children as young as four. They will be developing fine motor skills while learning to print.

ReadyWriter now comes with the SuperSlate feature. The SuperSlate is a reusable, transparent overlay that fastens firmly over your drill sheet that has been placed on the base. Use only a #2 pencil or mechanical pencil with aN HB lead to write answers to the drill problems. Flip the sheet over to check your answers, then clean the overlay with a bit of petroleum jelly and dry cloth or tissue. The SuperSlate allows you to use your ReadyWriter Drill Masters repeatedly. ~ Donna

Stylus Skills and Beginning Penmanship

Turn sloppy scrawlersinto skillful scribes with ReadyWriter® Penmanship Drills!

Each beautiful ReadyWriter® exercise portrays a scene from Farmer Brown's farm, with a fun story from the Instructor's Guide to set the context. What makes ReadyWriter so fun and unique is that your kids don't know they're practicing "fundamental stylus strokes"" they're having fun filling-in missing parts of pictures that go along with the stories! ReadyWriter contains 16 drill levels. It starts with exercises that drill your students in the six fundamental stylus strokes from which printed and cursive letters and numerals are formed. In later exercises, as your kids practice complete letters, the characters will likely flow easily, without the 'jaggies' which so often plague the penmanship of young students.

These ReadyWriter® drill master sheets are accompanied by the amazing SuperSlate, which allows you to use the drill sheets repeatedly. The SuperSlate features a plastic transparent overlay, on which the student writes his/her answers with a regular #2 pencil or mechanical pencil. Simply wipe off the overlay with a tissue and petroleum jelly, so your students can use the drill sheets over and over without ever having to print or reproduce new drill sheets!

A friend recommended this, and I think my son will really like the stories that go along with learning to write.

I have used Ready Writer before, years ago, and it was very helpful. I especially like that this one comes with a slate.

Someone had a critical review of this, and I'm thankful for the honesty. I'm confused though, by how they had to still make copies. Doesn't this come with 192 workpages? So, why were copies needed? Can someone help me? Can you use it in a traditional way without worrying about the slate? Maybe? Let me know!

BEST ANSWER: It depends on which pieces you buy. There's the slate which has cover sheets that you treat with vase line so you can use a pencil on them and then erase with a dab of vase line on a tissue. The master or a copy of it is placed under the cover sheet for the child to complete. The third item, like a workbook with 192 pages or whatever, does not need the slate or masters. I have not used it. I have copied a few masters on colored paper to go under the cover on the slate to add color when they were bored with plain paper.

BEST ANSWER: SuperSlate is a new product from Calculadder/ReadyWriter. The drill masters are inserted inside the overlay sheet and the student completes the sheet using a pencil and marking on the "slate". The master is flipped over and aligned with the overlap for quick and easy scoring. The overlay is easily cleaned with a dry cloth and small amount of petroleum jelly.

Few pages, no letter practice
On the cover it says 196 pages, but it is only about 16. The print quality isn’t very good, and it didn’t look like it would be very helpful. I thought it included letter instruction, but it’s basically just some pen/fine motor practice.

This is a great tool for a child who is learning how to use the pencil better. It can help with their handwriting, penmanship, and drawing.

Poor quality "slate" -- Overpriced
I grew up using these drill sheets and have fond memories of using them, so I wanted to purchase them for my own child. This was the most expensive of the materials I needed in my Kindergarten plan, but I thought it would be worth it since it included a "slate." Unfortunately, the slate fell apart (came unglued) as I was taking it out of the box, and the concept of how it is to be used and cleaned with petroleum jelly seems like much more effort than it is worth. So, in addition to paying for these materials I had to double my cost in order to purchase enough photocopies to get us through the year. I am disappointed and wish I had just gone with a more traditional handwriting curriculum. This one is truly only good for fine motor skill development, with no emphasis on proper formation of letters. I hope this is helpful for someone else to know!
