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 have seen this program used in schools before and love how it breaks down the method of teaching the kids how to write and recognize letters

Best ever basis for an entire curriculum build around manipulatives, and stressing the most important pre-reading, pre-writing, and pre-math skills, imo and experience. I want it for my grandchild.<br />Submitted by Lori Jane Nelson, not by her daughter Miranda.

I have heard good things about this curriculum from other parents who home school.

I need something I can do at home at night and on weekends to reinforce and enhance the early learning skills needed so badly for a successful education. I choose the deluxe kit because I want as many ways as possible to reinforce the skills we need to work on.

Love it for special needs child
This product has been wonderful for our 4 year old child with developmental delays. Combining lots of music and tactile stimulation, it teaches in a slow but progressive way that keeps her engaged. My only criticism of the product is that the teaching manual is not organized in the most inuitive way; there's a lot of flipping pages rather than the lessons being organized in a daily lesson order. Overall, it is great in helping with letter recognition and formation. Highly recommend, especially for kiddos with learning challenges.
