Product Description:

Coloring, drawing, counting, writing and other school readiness skills are covered in this set from Handwriting Without Tears®. Once a child has mastered their readiness skills, they are ready for more formal writing instruction at a developmentally appropriate level and the Kick Start Kindergarten introduces capital and lowercase letters through simple exercises. While not a complete introduction handwriting, children will be well prepared for the complete Kick Start Kindergarten program or Letters and Numbers for Me, depending on age and developmental readiness. This set includes books to help teach children pre-writing skills. Set includes My First School Book and then naturally progress into teaching them lowercase letters with My First Lowercase Book.

Publisher Description:

Teach children pre-writing and capitals with My First School Book and then naturally progress into teaching them lowercase letters with My First Lowercase Book in this two-book set.

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.

I knew I wanted to use this curriculum along side with explode the code and rainbow resource had them both available. What sealed the deal was that rainbow resources had the new updated version which included the lowercase book. I will definitely be shopping here in the future.

LWT is new to me so I just really want to get as much information as I can before I begin teaching it.

I have a pre-schooler who often asks to have a turn "doing his school" with Mommy- like his older siblings. These seemed to fit the bill for some basic readiness skills.

Can you purchase these workbooks separately?
A shopper on Sep 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We carry My First School Book separately but not My First Lowercase Book (it is only available in this set).
