Category Description for My Printing Book - Grade 1:

Building on the previous courses, My Printing reviews capital letters and numbers but primarily focuses on the correct use of lowercase letters in words and sentences. Activity pages combine handwriting instruction with other language arts lessons and children are given the opportunity to practice on different styles of lines.




Category Description for Handwriting Without Tears:

Providing a tactile, hands-on approach to handwriting, this approach works well for many types of students.

It is particularly helpful for children who are left-handed children or those who need a more interactive approach to learning. Children who struggle with motor skills or experience cognitive difficulties will also reap great benefits from this program. Unique to this program, practice pages use a two-horizontal-line format rather than the three-horizontal-line format typically found in writing programs, cursive has no slant and letters are formed using a very simple single-stroke, and it uses a multisensory approach to teach. Teaching and practice sessions are short (10-15 minutes), without a lot of meaningless busy work.

Each level of Handwriting without Tears consists of a workbook and teacher guide.

Consumable Student workbooks have horizontal pages in Kindergarten through Grade 2. Grade 3 and up offers vertical pages. Workbooks may be used separately, although at the early levels parents of struggling writers may find the Teacher Guides extremely valuable.

Newly revised in 2018, the Teacher Guides provide additional teaching instruction and support, while the Student Books provide more writing practice for each lesson. While some of the content is the same from the 2013 version, the expanded content means the two editions are not compatible without considerable parental/teacher modification (depending on lesson and level). Please note, the Spanish Student Books are also now updated to 2018 editions. There are currently no Spanish Teacher Guides available. English Teacher Guides provide the overall teaching philosophy, techniques and applicable multi-sensory activities, but do not provide the daily lesson plans.

Teacher Guides include:

  • an overview of the program
  • handwriting instruction
  • the stages of learning and scope and sequence
  • teaching guidelines
  • weekly and daily schedules for each unit
  • instructions on proper posture
  • paper and pencil skills

Following these helpful "how to" sections are lessons corresponding to each page in the student book. Each lesson includes a reduced student page, lesson objective and introduction, lesson plans and enrichment, ELL (English Language Learner) support and Cross Curricular suggestions. The back of each teacher guide includes multisensory activities suggestions, remediation tips, additional strategies for English Language Learners and Children with Special Needs, handwriting standards, references and index. Inside the back cover is a letter formation template for that grade level.

Please note, many of the online interactive resources require an additional purchase and appear to be limited to schools. There is a 30-day trial of the publishers HITT (Handwriting Interactive Teaching Tools) with purchase of the Teacher Guide. While this online support may be helpful, it is certainly not necessary to use this excellent program effectively. Suggested manipulatives are listed with the recommended grade level and the grade level Teacher Guide effectively explains the manipulatives. sc. ~ Deanne

Using this because it was recommended by a couple people, I already have the pre-k book for my younger son, and because both my boys love to learn with music and hands on activities.

My son is starting first grade and struggling with handwriting. I’m considering starting this curriculum. Should I start with Kindergarten or use first grade?
Teresa on Jul 18, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It may depend on the degree of fine motor controll that your son has. If it is minimal, then you may want to start with the K level which has larger lines and less work. You may also want to consider how many years you think your son may need to practice manuscript before being ready to move into cursive. Starting with the K level will give you an extra year (K, 1, and 2) before the cursive instruction begins.

Some great materials here
I am using portions of Handwriting Without Tears, but not the full program. I got it because I thought my kids needed more work on printing. We LOVE the chalkboard, little chalks, and the little sponges. It really encourages the kids to print their letters. We are not using other parts of the program because it teaches the letters are much more narrow than most programs and I don't want to confuse my kiddos.
