Product Description:

New from Learning without Tears, is the Transitional Kindergarten course which teaches capitals, lower case letters and numbers with developmentally appropriate lessons. The heart of the teaching is found in the Teacher Guide. While it may be possible to use the student book without it, children will not receive the depth of instruction.

Beginning with the introduction, the Teacher Guide reviews the stages of learning and provides a scope and sequence for this level. Teaching guidelines and strategies, multisensory activities, and correct writing posture follow. Detailed lessons corresponding to the student workbook are included. Cross curricular connections and supportive instruction for ELL and Enrichment students are integrated for each lesson. Additional teaching support and activities are available online with the purchase of the teacher guide.


At this level, manipulatives recommended include: Wood pieces set for capital letters, Capital Letter cards and mat for wood pieces, Mat Man, Rock, Rap, Tap & Learn CD, Slate Chalkboard and Blackboard with Double Lines, Little Chalk Bits, Little Sponge Cubes, Flip Crayons, and Pencils for Little Hands. SC. TG is 206 pgs. ~Deanne

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.

This level teaching guide includes upper and lower case letter formation instructions which are pertinent to the first several levels of the program (I didn't have funds to buy a teaching guide for pre-K, K, and 1st).

I have a 4 and a half year old who is not quite ready for kindergarten, of course, however, he still wants to learn and "do school." So, I chose this book as a stepping stone that will allow him to gently build some skills until he is developmentally ready for kindergarten.

Great prices on items I wanted.

I was so pleased with "My First Book" and my 4-year old is ready to move beyond it, but not yet ready for the intensity of the Kindergarten book. This will be a perfect transition book, and his little sister who is chomping at the bit to do school, will use the "My First Book" in this set.
